Ed Schultz is going after the birthers – this time the Birtherfomercial. The anti-birthers don’t seem to realize how ignorant they appear each time something like this comes up. He still thinks barry produced his birth certificate.
Vodpod videos no longer available.
SCHULTZ: The crazy birthers are taking it up a notch. A fundamentalist Christian Web site teamed up with a birther group to produce a 28-minute infomercial pushing the conspiracy theory that President Barack Obama was not born in the United States. It‘s been running in seven states, all in the South. Not a bad plan, since more than half the folks down there already think Obama may not be an American.
He shows a video clip asking for $30 (in return get a FAX sent to every states attorney) and the where’s the birth certificate bumpersticker.
SCHULTZ: Only in America. Your $30 will fund a flood of faxes to each state‘s attorney‘s office across the country and U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder. Now, that‘s some expensive faxing, especially when you consider the recipients are going to be probably 20-year-old interns with instructions to deposit faxes like those directly in the trash.
But wait. There‘s more. That is one overpriced bumper sticker.
But in its first week on the air, the infomercial got between 1,500 and 2,000 responses. That‘s right, almost 2,000 people were stupid enough to send 30 bucks to these folks.
Buying a TV spot to push for a ridiculous and completely defunct conspiracy theory, that‘s a full half-hour of “Psycho Talk.”
