CNN: Conspiracy Nuts Network

From Salon:

This week, the birthers — the movement that believes President Obama is not a natural-born citizen of the U.S. and thus not eligible to be president — have gone mainstream, and in a big way. That’s due in part to a YouTube video of a woman shouting at Rep. Mike Castle, R-Del., about Obama’s birth certificate. It’s also the work of CNN’s Lou Dobbs, who’s apparently found yet another conspiracy theory to love.

Dobbs actually first began giving the birthers a boost last week, when he had Alan Keyes, who ran against Obama in 2004 and 2008 and is now suing over the president’s birth certificate, on his radio show, along with Keyes’ lawyer, Orly Taitz, the “queen bee” of the birthers. Since then, he’s latched on to the movement, discussing it several times on his radio show and on CNN. On a night he was off, a fill-in host on “Lou Dobbs Tonight” interviewed Keyes and Taitz.

Hey Lou Dobbs! Show Us Your Taitz!

From Joan Walsh at Salon:

[…] Tuesday night on CNN’s “Larry King Live,” rising GOP shill/star Liz Cheney refused to denounce the “Birthers” — the right-wing fringe movement devoted to denying (for a changing array of reasons) that Obama is eligible to be president. Instead, Cheney defended the Birthers by blaming Obama for their rage.

Holier than Thou

From CBS News:

President Barack Obama’s planned commencement address at Notre Dame has prompted outrage from students and activists upset that the Catholic university has invited a pro-choice politician to its campus. The controversy has generated headlines and with them consistent debate in the media about whether or not the president should show up at all.

But the situation is less controversial than it may seem from all the chatter over the past few weeks. Indeed, it seems that the most vocal opponents of the president’s visit only represent a small minority of the college community.

Dumbos, the Elephants, Revisited

Yesterday, we looked at a couple of Rethuglican Dumbos. But were their remarks the dumbest of the dumb? They have some mighty stiff competition!

From the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:

WASHINGTON — Michael Steele, the new Republican National Chairman, wants to rebrand the GOP in a new image.

Time will tell whether the Republican Party is prepared for the changes Steele has in mind.

In an interview today with Washington Times, Steele disclosed that he is working on a public relations campaign that seeks to apply GOP principles to “urban-suburban hip-hop settings.”

What Steele has in mind, he says, will “surprise everyone” and be “off the hook.”
