He says there’s “nothing you can do to convince these people”. Yes, there is. Show the world the original birth certificate like barry said he posted on line June 20, 2008. And as whacked out as that Kenyan piece of paper is – it’s no more vetted than barry’s COLB that Bill Maher has been calling a birth CERTIFICATE.
His “humor” consists of misogyny, foul graphic language, 6th grade jokes and intended insults — the underlying tone sarcasm.
Herr Olbermann’s little sister Rachel Maddow in attendance.
Don’t underestimate the power of a tiny fringe group of losers to ruin everything.
For the past couple of weeks we’ve been laughing heartily at the wacky antics of the “birthers”, the far-right goofballs who claim Obama wasn’t really born in Hawaii and therefore the job goes to the runner-up, Miss California Carrie Prejean.
And you know there is nothing you can do to convince these people, you can hand them in person the original birth certificate…
That is all that has ever been asked for. And only then, when they refuse to believe it, do they become conspiracists. If barry had done that initially, instead of lying like he did, this would not still be an issue.He chose his path.
...with the placenta, and have a video of Obama emerging from the womb with Don Ho singing in the background, and they still would not believe it.
“Hey birthers, wanna hear my theory?
My theory was that Obama was born in America and you were born with the umbilical cord around your neck. I don’t know what his mother was doing when she was pregnant, but I’m pretty sure your mom was drinking.”
How is any of that funny except to fratboys, Media Matters and MSNBC/CNN ? How bad does he feel about himself?
Oh, I kid the birthers, there’s one thing that makes me think they could be right.
We’re Americans – of course we’re gonna hire an illegal alien to clean-up.
Imagine if a Republican said that….would it not be labeled racist?
I’m joking, of course.
And laughing it off has also been the reaction from Democratic leaders so far.
He said “so far”. He expects the birthers to continue. Why? He expects the Democratic leaders they may have to change their actions – as in it will no longer be a laughing matter.
Proving that Democrats never learn.
Because in America, if you don’t immediately kill errant bullshit, no matter how ridiculous, it can’t grow and thrive like crabgrass or Cirque du Soleil.
This birther stuff might be a deluded, time-wasting, right-wing obsession, but so was Whitewater, and look where that ended up.
Liberals said, ‘oh, what are they gonna do…keep expanding the case until they impeach the President over a blowjob?‘
I’m telling you that in America there is no idea so patently absurd that it can’t catch on…
For example, have you ever met a Mormon?
Or, more recently, we had the Swift Boat allegations against John Kerry, making him, a genuine war hero, into a coward in a race against the guy who never left Texas. This was so stupid Kerry refused to even discuss it. And we all know how well that worked out.
Well, you may ask, how something as inane as Whitewater or Swift Boats or the birther-thing gain traction?
I’ll tell you how. The same way that the story of Elton John almost dying from ingesting too much of Rod Stewart’s sperm gained traction in my high school.
Dummies talking to other dummies.
It’s just easier now because of the internet. And because our mainstream media does such a lousy job of talking truth to stupid.
Lou Dobbs said recently said that ‘people are asking a lot of questions about the birth certificate.’
Yes. The same people who want to know where the sun goes at night. And where to put the stamp on their e-mail.
And Lou, you’re their new king.
Which is why it is so important that we, the few, the proud, the reality based, attack this stuff before it has a chance to fester and spread. This is not a case of Democrats versus Republicans.
It’s sentient beings versus the lizard people.
And it is to the lizard people that I offer this deal, I will show you President Obama’s birth certificate when you show me Sarah Palin’s high school diploma.
He just admitted that he knows that COLB is not the birth certificate.
