Now you’d think that would put an end to the Tea Bagger nonsense about Obama not being born in the U.S.
Orly Taitz, a prominent Obama critic who has questioned his birthplace, told Talking Points Memo that she thinks the newly released document is questionable because Obama’s father’s race is listed as “African.”
“It sounds like it would be written today, in the age of political correctness, and not in 1961, when they wrote white or Asian or ‘Negro,’” Taitz said.
Perhaps she’s just angry because the state of Hawaii didn’t use a certain other N-word that was pretty common in the days when things weren’t “Politically correct“? But we all know Tea Baggers aren’t racists. They tell us that all the time:
Oh, Grady. So close, and yet …
Look. Obama should have never released this, because these morons won’t believe anything he says. They’re not going to vote for him. They’re going to create some new conspiracy theory to keep us distracted for another two years. They’re going to keep ranting like it’s the night of a full moon at an insane asylum.
You can call Donald Trump a serial adulterer, publicity hound, egomaniac, (really, you CAN) but bottom line is he has the Tea Baggers’ number, and he’s going to keep playing these suckers like a violin, polling high among Republicans and building up ratings for this season’s “The Apprentice.” He gave a rambling press conference today patting himself on the back for forcing Obama to concede to this lunacy. And he know that if he comes up with something more absurd (Was Obama really qualified to go to an Ivy League school?), these pea brains will drool like a Pavlovian dog at a bell factory.
