More tinfoil-hattery on Gannon-Guckert

Online nutjobs to be found on both sides of aisle, as appears from a Des Moines Register piece:

James Guckert (aka Jeff Gannon ) is Johnny Gosch:
The Iowa paperboy was kidnapped in 1982, with unsubstantiated stories emerging later from his mother that he was abducted into a child pedophilia ring. No trace of him has ever been found, and no suspects have been arrested.

The Register is at pains to point out that those pushing the story have credibility problems; and that there are various problems with dates..

Of course, it might be true (the original Gannon story was pretty incredible on its face), just as John Kerry shtupping Alex Polier might have been true (he is known to have put it about a bit around the time that the Polier rumpo was supposed to have taken place) but wasn't.
