I think the media is loving this because they want to make birthers, as they call people who are just curious about the President of the United States and his background and his associations and his consistency with what he says today versus what he said in both the memoirs that he wrote or Bill Ayers or whomever wrote them—the media is loving the fact that some curious Americans are actually asking the questions. And they’re trying to make those curious Americans sound kind of crazy. So the media is loving this issue and they’re perpetuating the issue, trying to make it sound really worse than it is.
Sarah Palin, continuing to try legitimizing the birther insanity on Fox News. I love how she manages to roll the two conspiracy theories into one misanthropic box o’ stupid.
