I haven't spoken about the birther movement. Mostly because I just CANNOT believe that these people are for real. I mean, maybe some of them aren't for real. Maybe this is in fact a smokescreen. But it seems like they came up out of nowhere, like some babbling looney tune who randomly materializes in a shopping mall and starts ranting and raving, spit flying in all directions.
Is this almost done yet? I mean, I know a law has been passed saying Obama is an American. I know that birth announcements have been furnished.
And yet, as recently as two days ago, we had this crazy bitch appearing on MSNBC:
Orly? More like ORLY?!
Seriously... I can't. I really can't. Can someone please do something outstanding and absurd? Can swine flu come back? Maybe we can find a video of Michael Jackson robbing a bank with Bubbles in tow.
ANYTHING that will move this god forsaken 24-hour news cycle forward.
And then on the other side we have these weird astroturfed mobs screaming at Democratic law makers. Members of groups led by ex-pharma CEOs. I am SURE that there are large groups of Americans who do NOT want a public health option... because, you know... that makes a lot of sense.
WHAT IS GOING ON? Do the Republicans really think this is working for them? I'm so sick of it. Come on people!
I read plenty of articles saying that these odd tactics are pushing the GOP further to the fringe, until it will be only a deep-south-based party. I hope that's true. I'm not sure that it is.
I'd love to hear some of you comment - what do you think of the birthers? And the Obama-Care debacle? Where do you stand?
