Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don’t

From The Oakland Tribune:

LOS ANGELES — Several California Republican politicians, including Senate candidate Carly Fiorina, are scheduled to share the stage this week with one of the leaders of the “birther” movement that asserts President Barack Obama was not born in this country and is thus ineligible for his elected office.

Orly Taitz, an Orange County attorney who has gone to court many times to try to disqualify Obama, was invited to speak Thursday at a Tax Day Tea Party rally in Pleasanton that is expected to draw thousands. Late Tuesday, organizers said that they had rescinded Taitz’s invitation after questions were raised about her presence by candidates who had been contacted by the Los Angeles Times.

What’s in a Name?

So, here’s the scoop, kids. Glenn Beck was jawing with his radio sidekick, Pat Gray (apparently, one dumbshit per show is not enough) about the prez, Barack Obama, daring to use his name. Not Glenn Beck’s name, Barack Obama was using his own name, Barack Obama. 😯 Well, kids, I found out something quite interesting about Glenn Beck on teh Google that you simply have to read!

It’s this, from the sidebar:

Children       Mary, Hannah (from first marriage); Raphe, Cheyenne (from second marriage)

Stay with me kids, and I’ll ‘splain.

If their lips are flappin’, a bull is crappin’

From Politifact:

PolitiFact readers overwhelming chose Sarah Palin’s claim that the health care bill contains “death panels” as Lie of the Year. A resounding 61 percent of our 4,864 voters picked death panels as the top lie. No other finalist in the field of eight statements came close.

Chuck Norris? O RLY?

From THE HUFFINGTON POST:

In a column Tuesday, actor and conservative political figure Chuck Norris argued that President Obama should release his birth certificate. Norris said that he finds it “a bit of a groundless stretch” to believe the president is not from Hawaii. Yet, he tells Obama, “Refusing to post your original birth certificate is an unwise political and leadership decision that is enabling the “birther” controversy.” And he adds that the president’s alleged reluctance suggests that he does have something to hide — even if he was born in the U.S.

Gee, Gordon’s Giddy!

From MEDIA MATTERS:

Advancing the conspiracy theory that President Obama lacks a valid birth certificate and is therefore ineligible to be president, radio host G. Gordon Liddy falsely claimed during the July 23 edition of MSNBC’s Hardball that there is “a deposition, which is a sworn statement, from the stepgrandmother, who says, ‘I was present and saw [Obama] born in Mombasa, Kenya.’ ” In fact, while the conservative news website WorldNetDaily claims to be “in possession” of affidavits from Anabaptist minister Ron McRae and Rev. Kweli Shuhubia, two individuals who purportedly took part in a telephone interview with the president’s stepgrandmother, McRae’s and Shuhubia’s accounts have been discredited, and even WorldNetDaily does not claim to have a “sworn statement” from the stepgrandmother herself.

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.

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.”
