[pnw_liff] Tonya Harding Reborn As Lee Harvey Oswald?


(via BoingBoing) Yes, and Nancy Kerrigan ... in a sure sign that the Creator has a wicked sense of humor ... could be JFK, reincarnated, hypothesizes Robert Urbanek:

Consider the evidence of reincarnation. Both Tonya Harding and Lee Harvey Oswald have the letters "Har" in their names. Both of their victims were Irish Catholics from Massachusetts whose last names began with the letters "Ke": John F. Kennedy and Nancy Kerrigan, and both were attacked in cities beginning with the letter "D": Dallas and Detroit. Time magazine also saw a connection in the assaults on Kerrigan and Kennedy. Margaret Carlson wrote in the February 21, 1994 issue, "The videocam verite of the clubbing [of Kerrigan] provides the same gritty realism that the Zapruder footage brought to Oliver Stone's JFK."

Harding and Oswald came from poor dysfunctional families and learned to use a rifle. Both were about the same age when they became infamous: Lee at 24, Tonya at 23. And they have similar facial features. Kennedy doesn't look like Kerrigan, but Kerrigan looks a bit like Jackie Kennedy. Perhaps God's joke is that JFK, the womanizer, should return in a body resembling his own wife.

(linky). Urbanek's site, Tonya Harding Shot JFK.com, is a brain-glazing ride through things that you never imagine could possibly have been connected, or maybe should not be... not just the proposition that Tonya shot JFK in a former life as LHO. Though that does have a bizarre symmetry that is as pleasing as it is disturbing.

Either he has a massive sense of humor or genius that must be truly feared. He sure does write well, tho.

Poor Tonya. Conspire to crack your opponent's kneecap just once ...

Theres a lot of stuff like that between JFK and Lincoln too. They were both elected to office exactly 100 years apart, both they're killers were known by their three names, both of which had 15 letters.
Lincoln was shot in the Ford theater and Kennedy was shot in a Ford Lincoln.
Lincoln's killer ran from a theater to a warehouse and Kennedy's killer ran from a warehouse to a theater.
Theres more than that I just forget it
