In today's dispatches, the media starts to turn over the rock that Stephen Pidgeon lives under. Arpaio shows that he's more than willing to repeat Corsi's lies to another Corsi shill. Rudy continues his trip to crazy town, and Dr.Kate is waiting at the station for him.
World Nut Daily and their "Western Center for 'Journalism'" continue to throw a fit over the media's refusal to take Corsi's Arizona muppet show seriously. Dr. Kate isn't the only birther giving into paranoia, since Dr. Orly is swimming in Lake Bugshit herself. Which goes well with her continued calls for insurrection. Unlicensed Pastoral Therapist Sam Sewell finds a fellow Mensa member who's just as koo-koo for cocoa puffs as he is.
The birtherstani continue to make out with Andrew Breitbart's corpse. Dr. Orly is upset at the California GOP for DARING to endorse someone other than Dr. Orly. Meanwhile she's trying to seduce Arpaio away from Corsi. One of Flordia's congress critters plays flirty birther games. And the South shows it's no home for sane Republicans.
I'm still working on the comments issue. And "Rambo Ike" has become the first person ever to be banned from this blog.
7 March - Equality Matters does a profile on Stephen Pidgeon.
"It’s been less than a month since Washington Gov. Christine Gregoire (D) signed her state’s marriage equality bill, but a number of anti-gay efforts to repeal the law are already underway. One such effort – Initiative 1192 – was filed in January by attorney Stephen Pidgeon (R), who is also a candidate for State Attorney General. Long before becoming the spokesman for Initiative 1192, Pidgeon made a name for himself peddling extreme right-wing conspiracy theories, ranging from “birther” theories about President Obama's eligibility for office to accusations that Obama is the anti-Christ."
8 March - Mark Gillar, the "Tea Party Power Hour" post that provided the voice over and hosting for the videos shown during the Corsi Muppet show talks to the lead muppet himself, Joe Arpaio.
It seems that Arpaio can actually spew the same debunked Corsi talking points without having Corsi's hand up his rear. Amazing.
9 March - Rudy is still completely nuts. And he's got a mad at Bill O'Reilly for being unwilling to board the crazy train to birtherstan.
Oh, and Rudy is still calling for execution for anyone he's mad at.
9 March - The Phoenix New Times comments on World Nut Daily's recycling of old birther lies.
"Arpaio's pals over at World Net Daily continue to release the latest conspiracy theories from the posse, and it's not getting any more credible.
Why are they opting for Kenya? Because
he's black "the posse cannot confirm yet that Obama was not born in Kenya and brought to the United States as a days-old infant for his birth to be registered in Hawaii."
This shocking news comes two days after the posse's lead "investigator," Mike Zullo, claimed media members were "threatened with FTC investigations" if they actually took this stuff seriously."
Don't you just love the tap dance they're doing to explain away the lack of media that actually takes this seriously??
"The FTC must've forgot to throw New Times' number in the Rolodex, because we never got that call.
"The threats were so intimidating that some individuals quit their positions over safety concerns for their families," Zullo apparently told Arpaio's pals at the World Net Daily.
Yet again, there's a grand total of zero evidence provided, and no one seems to be defending Arpaio on this "investigation," including the conservative magazine National Review"
Well, there's been a grand total of zero evidence for any birther claim, so why is this a surprise??
10 March - The Joseph Farah / Floyd Brown ran "Western Center for 'Journalism'" publishes an "open letter" to Glenn Beck, Ann Coutler, Bill O'Reilly, and other far-right media darlings over their refusal to drink the flavor-aid and board the train to birtherstan.
"And then along came a fraud so big that it could easily blow the lid off of, say, the Tea Pot (Dome) scandal…and Glenn was nowhere to be found. Well, not exactly…. He was actually everywhere to be found…mocking both the notion that the UFO in the White House (Unidentified Foreign Occupant?) should have to meet Constitutional muster, and anyone so bereft of reason that he (or she) could conclude otherwise.
But wait, along came…not John, but almost…Sheriff Joe. So much for the relentless pursuit of the truth, for our (my) one-time hero, the feckless…excuse me, fearless, Glenn Beck! (No, I clearly had it right the first time.)
I will end my own diatribe by simply saying that having been in a self-induced (fooled you!) twelve-step program since Glenn went AWOL on this issue (following pal O’Reilly’s lead) about a year ago"
And the writer, of course, has to lick Farah and Corsi's prostates thoroughly clean.
"For the record, Glenn, this is far from over, thanks to Joseph Farah, Jerome Corsi, Mike Zullo, Brian Reilly (the originator of the Posse idea), and, last of all, your new fave, Glenn, Sheriff Joe."
Brian Reilly responds back to the writers rear-kissing.
March 10, 2012 at 8:28 pm
Once again, thank you for your kind words. The good Lord’s hand can be seen throughout this effort. He is opening the doors for us all to see the truth.
Sheriff Joe Arpaio, Mike Zullo & his 6 member Cold Case Posse, Jerome Corsi, Joseph Farah, the 242 people who signed the petition requesting the investigation are all to be thanked for this historic investigation. Your efforts have been also, very much appreciated. There are countless others. This ongoing investigation is not over. There is more to come.
What is very clear is the MSM and their so called conservative talking heads, have been complicit in one of the biggest coverups in our nation’s history. In my book, their treacherous activities have brought about a Constitutional crisis that only we the people, with God’s help, will solve.
Surprise Tea Party"
And just in case you thought they were done:
"BR says: March 11, 2012 at 9:51 am
"Jim & Julie Wise head up the Surprise Tea Party. The combined efforts of the Surprise Tea Party, The Sun City West Tea Party, The Arizona 2012 Project, Waking Up America, The Arizona Freedom Alliance and the citizens of Maricopa county who attended the August 17, 2011 Jerome Corsi presentation all contributed to the success of this project. The good Lord simply gave me an idea and these good folks came together to make it a success….."
How very interesting. And it's not like any of those were, oh, biased in any way, shape, or form……
…I have asked numerous Arizona elected officials to give Secretary of State Bennett the authority to remove Barack Hussein Obama II, from the Arizona 2012 ballot based on the invalid identity documents that Barack Obama is operating under and the on-going criminal investigation by Sheriff Arpaio.
The investigation is now a criminal investigation incorporating the Cold Case Posse and the resources of the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office. The investigation continues….."
Gee, that seems to be a suggestion that the "Cold Case Posse" just happen to be using the taxpayer-paid resources of the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office for partisan reasons….
10 March - Dr. Orly is getting quite paranoid (malware and redirect warning)
"Please, call the members of the executive board of the GOP and urge them to vote for me, if they want any chance of making it not only in CA, but also exposing Obama nationwide."
"Defamation attack from Jon Fleishman:”I am most interested to see what the star chamber does on the U.S. Senate race. I have yet to have any of the Republican candidates demonstrate to me that they have what it takes to retire Dianne Feinstein. Which is not to say that one could not, but that is what the next few months are for — to allow competing Republicans to demonstrate their ability to get elected. Some are worried that if one candidate does not have the ability to have their name listed in the Sample Ballot Pamphlet on a page separate from the actual sample ballot, that bizarre whack-job “birther” Orly Taitz, a gadfly running for U.S. Senate, could be the top GOP vote-getter. I don’t buy that, but perhaps some on the board will. I lament that it will be only 24 people making this decision, and not GOP voters, or at least many thousands of GOP leaders.”"
"Wahhhh! Someone said something mean (but true) about MEEE!!!"
10 March - ConWebWatch comments on World Nut Daily's attempt to prop up the Corsi/Arpaio muppet show.
"A March 7 article by Bob Unruh features a claim by Mike Zullo, lead posse investigator and Corsi's fellow cashing-in partner, that "he was told by sources members of the media were threatened with federal investigations should they continue to report on the birth certificate issue." Unruh quotes Zullo as saying, "During our investigation, we actually were told [that media] had been threatened with FTC investigations. Commentators [had been] threatened with their jobs." Unruh and Zullo, of course, offer no actual evidence to back up this claim.
That's not surprising, because it appears bogus on its face. Why would the Federal Trade Commission investigate journalists? Not only does that agency have nothing to do with regulating journalism, nobody does."
Well, the simple answer is that Zullo or Unruh made up the entire story knowing the gullible birtherstani rubes would swallow it whole.
And even more entertaining:
"…in a March 9 article, Chelsea Schilling touts a column in, of all places, the Russian newspaper Pravda claiming that American media is “tame,” afraid to publish news and is “deliberately hiding the evidence published on the internet about [Obama's] defrauding of the American public and the deliberate evisceration of the Constitution of the United States.”
That's right -- WND is promoting work in a publication best known as the official voice of Soviet-era propaganda to back up its birther conspiracies.
That, perhaps more than anything, demonstrates the depths of intellectual dishonesty WND must descend to keep the birther story alive. It apparently doesn't matter to WND that it instantly discredits itself by doing so."
10 March - Dr. Orly is beating the drums of insurrection again (malware and redirect warning)
(Bold face mine)
"See how WW2 veterans won over the criminal enterprise and mafia, which controlled elections in TN. If we don’t find one honest judge, if Congress does not act by Nov 6, this might be the only way to remove the usurper and his junta that took over the nation
Posted on | March 10, 2012 "
Dr. Orly is talking about the 1946 "McMinn County War", where you had a wealthy family basically controlling the county until a group of veterans used force against the corrupt sheriff and his deputies to make sure the ballots were counted correctly in the election.
During the incident, an African-American veteran was shot by a deputy when he tried to vote. The veteran later recovered.
Obviously, Dr. Orly is using this for bedtime fetish material.
Needless to say, her cavity creeps are just gaga at the very idea.
"Bart Piscitello March 10th, 2012 @ 9:24 am
…Her need is for many of her followers to support her with financial ammunition.
Her bullets are dollars.
Dollars for her legal services, travel, court costs; you can fill in the rest…
Donate something now, for this country has lost the rule of law..
Maybe, just maybe something may be salvaged
in this chaotic abeyss.
Orly’s leadership may inspire others with some military savvy to rebuff this tyrannical government.
the tree of Liberty is watered by the blood of its patriots;
As of now our bullets are dollars…."

And Dr. Orly's already there.

Chicago mafia started the civil war by placing usurper with forged IDs in the WH"
11 March - Dr. Kate's decent into the septic tank of paranoia and insanity continues.
"As it turns out, the usurpation was planned long ago; the powers that be were just waiting for the moment when Americans would be so dumbed down and exhausted that we would vote for Obama ‘to prove we were not racist’. In my opinion, they waited too long to install ‘the black guy’, as America had moved past racism a long time ago. "
O RLY?? Have you looked at your fellow birthers?? Hell, have you looked AT YOUR OWN BLOG???
"Moved past racism"?? Your own blog and many of the floaters posting there show that racism is alive and well in this country.
"For each time we get close to the full exposure of this agent of terror, something terrifying happens to Americans or America. To wit:
* HRC says Obama is not American: out comes the gender and race card, unleashed ferociously, with the lame stream media, obutt supporters, your family and neighbors accusing you of being racist; sadly we find that HRC and Obama collaborated to keep the focus off Obama’s illegitimacy * Larry Sinclair on his affair with Obama: Donald Young is murdered in December 2008; * Legitimate American concerns expressed through proper channels are summarily dismissed without so much as a peek at the merits of the case, or alternatively, judges take nothing and rule on everything. * Obama in Hawaii to strong arm the HI democrat party: Granny Dunham dies. * The release of the fraudulent electronic version of Obama’s ‘LFBC’: Bin Ladin is murdered again; The Navy Seals knowledgeable about the so-called Bin Ladin ‘raid’ are taken out when their helicopter crashes; * A democrat operative taken out because he saw something about Obama that would blow his cover * Breitbart murdered on the day of Sheriff Arpaio’s report"
Listen to the water Dr. Kate. It's telling you to INCREASE YOUR LITHIUM!!
"The luciferians behind this destruction never expected Americans to figure this out, and each murder, assassination, worldly diversion is designed to keep us from focusing on the illegality of Obama…the one place where removing the person would expose the whole conspiracy against America and the world. Our constitution specifies who can be in that office of the president, and we have no legitimate president right now. The millions in bribes, threats, the sacrificing of our entire worth…has followed his usurpation. That’s a lot of work, money, and blood invested in keeping the illusion alive.
Satan is the god of confusion and liars.
If any of us on this blog or others that focus on Obama’s destruction and identity are taken out, you know where to look."
It's official. Dr. Kate is seriously, completely, and absolutely mentally ill
And just in case you have any doubt about the racism in Dr. Kate's own blog:
"jacqlynsmith March 12, 2012 at 8:05 am Its hard to tell the truth about the Jewish Power without being called anti-Semitic. Folks just can't get past the Christ ties. But these are not Jews, they are Zionists, big difference. They are Kazarians, people of Turkish origin who have adopted the Jewish faith by name only. 44 or so countries the Jews have been thrown out of in the last 500 or so years. They have been a cancer in almost ever country they have ever settled in…It is what it is folks….."
March 12, 2012 at 1:48 pm
madeleine…..the RIGHT is just as EVIL…you are missing the point…..IT is NOT the JEWS who have brought on the EVIL or Christ….it is the EVIL of those who pretend to be JEWISH or pretend to be the GOOD GOVERNMENT IN THE NAME OF FREEDOM ALL THE WHILE REMOVING OUR FREEDOMS…..they all use their money and power to control what you think and what information you receive….all of this combined has served the ELITIST AND ZIONIST BANKERSTERS well for DIVISION is how they are able to garner all that they own and keep for themselves….LOOK HOW many ways we are divided….RACE…COLOR…CREED..PARTY…COUNTRY…TEAM…SEX..etc
I only know one person running for PREZ who is willing to UNITE us all….that is Ron Paul…what unites us is adhering to our founding documents like the Bill of Rights…..the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence…..both the Right and the Left have been shredding these documents for decades….placing the blame on ONE person or ONE group is only enforcing the Agenda of Satan and the EVIL DOERS!
UNITED WE STAND….DIVIDED WE FALL!"
So surely Dr. Kate would denounce this blatant racism in her own blog??
March 12, 2012 at 10:10 am
Madeline, you must read the linkages in my last post on Satan to understand the links that are being posted here, particularly the interview with Rosenwald. You will then see that what we have been taught about ‘the chosen ones’ is not exactly in God’s plan. There is lots of ‘anti-semitic’ stuff out there, we are not talking about that here. Read the post and interview."
March 12, 2012 at 3:00 pm
Likewise. Sorry you feel its rubbish. If you disagree with this, then put up some other sources that prove it. I tried to find other sources and couldn’t.
Also, the Zionists are in control of the US media, the financial system, and the US government. The deception goes way back, and how can you dispute the words of Jesus “those who say they are jews but are not”? That’s right out of the bible. And if you read the bible, you will see where the falsehoods began.
I feel sadness for anyone who argues a point with words like ‘rubbish’, failing to offer any different sources."
I guess not.
She's become quite the little anti-semite, hasn't she??
11 March - Unlicensed pastoral "therapist" and shaklee salesman Sam Sewell gives an update about the Florida Birther Ballot jihad.
"2. Stage two will be another individual case filed in Pasco County by a fellow *Mensan using a creative legal theory that has been overlooked until now."
Colour this former Mensan underwhelmed by the idea.
"3. Stage three carries the payload of empowering citizen activists to file many more cases by using our “Do it Yourself” ballot challenge kit."
Wow, a "Do It Yourself Failure" kit.
"STAGE TWO - Another complaint using a different legal theory has been completed and is about to be filed. We emphasize that this case is a whole new strategy from the cases that have been getting dismissed on procedural grounds for the past four years. Instead of election code challenges, it makes constitutional rights challenges."
That's hardly new.
"Also, particularly in Florida, there's a constitutional provision that clearly gives us standing. This complaint was created by a fellow Mensan who is a paralegal, and me. Jerry Collette is well known for his creative legal strategies. Jerry is amazingly inventive when it comes to novel applications of legal theory. His business website is Gifted Legal Mind for those who are interested in knowing about Jerry. "
"Gifted Legal Mind"??? Mr. Collette doesn't think much of himself now, does he??
Oh, and Sam Sewell wants hi$ $hare of the birther buck$.
"HERE COMES THE COLLECTION PLATE:
So far, we have alienated all those who adamantly support Marco Rubio, Bobby Jindal, and Barack Obama. Our hope for funding is dependent upon those citizens who see defending the Constitution of the United States of America as more important than partisan politics.
If you would like to help “we the people,” rather than the ruling elite, to be in charge of the government, please give generously to support our efforts."
So who is this "Gifted Legal Mind"??
There is literally nothing new or unusual here. It's standard birther cut and paste from past failures.
As for Collette himself?? Well, here's his birther page:
"Jerry Has Joined the Team
Legal strategy is an area where Jerry shines. Jerry has already developed some strategy ideas that have not yet been used for eligibility challenges, and he is publishing them as he develops them further."
His ego seems to be close to that of Dr. Orly. However, Jerry Collette has some interesting back history. Like the fact he claims to be the "interim attorney general for the provisional government of the Republic of Lakotah". He was also involved with the 2008 "Ron Paul Blimp", and was the founder and director of the now-defunct "Libertarian Legal Fund". He also has some ties to the Sovereign Citizen movement.
11 March - Considering how little use Andrew Breitbart had for birthers when he was alive, the birtherstani seem to love dry-humping his corpse.
11 March - "ME ME It's all about MEEE!! How dare they consider anyone but MEEE!!!!" (malware and redirect warning)
"I addressed CA GOP board. I was not told in advance that I will have an opportunity to address the board before their endorsement. I got a call 5 minutes before the meeting. Also, I was not told that I will have an opportunity to address the board in person. It appears that the other 3 leading candidates actually were there and appeared in person, while I addressed on the phone, which is a disadvantage. "
By which I presume Dr. Orly failed to read, study, or otherwise acquaint herself with even the slightest bit of the rules and procedures for this event. I have no doubt they sent her the info, I also have no doubt she didn't bother reading any of it.
"My guess that the CA GOP will endorse the establishment pick Washington Lobbyist Elizabeth Emken or Al Ramirez, who happened to be Hispanic and they are hoping for another Marco Rubio, even though Ramirez got only 2% of the vote the last time around when he ran for the US Senate against Barbara Boxer."
Dr. Orly is, quite honestly, lying here. Al Ramirez never faced Sen. Barbara Boxer in 2010. Sen. Boxer faced off against former HP CEO Carly Fiorina. Ramirez got 1.8% of the vote against Fiorina's 56.4% (Fiorina went on to lose to Sen. Boxer.)
"It is interesting that in his 5 minutes speech al Ramirez stated that other candidates stick their nose, where it doesn’t belong. I believe, that he referred to me and meant that my nose does not belong in investigation of Obama’s birth certificate. The guy is a real constitutionalist, isn’t he?
The board decided to discus candidates in private and vote in private, so I will not know the answer for a while."
Wonder if Dr. Orly is going to do the same thing she did to Damon Dunn - try and sue to get any opponents off the ballot.
As for this primary, despite Dr. Orly's claims, there are ten other Republican candidates in addition to Dr. Orly. Public Policy Polling did a report on 7 February 2011 (PDF here) where Dr. Orly wasn't even mentioned among the candidates. Dr. Orly WAS mentioned on a 16 November 2011 PPP report (PDF here), along with Tom Campbell, Steve Poizner, Carly Fiorina, and Rep. Devin Nunes.
"That net approval mark puts Feinstein just outside the upper third of the 87 senators on which PPP has polled. That, combined with the state’s Democratic leanings and a relatively weak Republican bench, means that none of Feinstein’s potential challengers next year, even those with the biggest statewide name identification, can cut into her eleven-point net approval margin. Tom Campbell trails by 15 points (53-38); Steve Poizner by 19 (54-35); Carly Fiorina by 20 (56-36), twice her loss to Barbara Boxer last fall; Rep. Devin Nunes by 24 (55-31); and birther Orly Taitz by 27 (56-29)."
Funny, that's a LOT different than what Dr. Orly claims….
"Of the five Republicans, Campbell is the only one with a net positive favorability rating, and barely (+2). That far outclasses Nunes’ -11, Poizner’s -12, Taitz’s -15, and Fiorina’s -16."
Dr. Orly is only slightly more popular than Carly Fiorina.
"Q11 If the candidates for Senate next year were Democrat Dianne Feinstein and Republican Orly Taitz, who would you vote for? Dianne Feinstein……………………………………… 56% Orly Taitz………………………………………………… 29% Undecided………………………………………………. 15%"
Doesn't look much like Dr. Orly has a path to victory here.
12 March - Dr. Orly is still hoping she can get to use Corsi's favorite muppet. (malware and redirect warning)
"He never submitted his report to any authorities: he is saying that he does not want to put them in an uncomfortable position, so he is saying that the Maricopa county DA and Attorney General of Arizona and governor Brewer are known establishment puppets, who will do nothing, so what’s the point? without him submitting his report to the DA and AG there is no chance of his report ever being acted upon by any judge."
And, of course, it's ME ME ME!! IT'S ALL ABOUT MEEE!!!!!
"As you can see, I was right all along. In terms of substance Arpaio confirmed everything I’ve submitted to courts for the last three and a half years. I was vindicated on substance."
Never mind that all of Arpaio's report was reprinted Corsi articles.
"Unfortunately Arpaio chose not to testify in court under penalty of perjury, when I subpoenaed him in GA. He used his attorney to send me a letter, saying that it is burdensome for him to go to Georgia."
Maybe he turned it down for the exact same reason he didn't turn the results of his "investigation" over to the District Attorney or Attorney General's office. Namely that Arpaio knows damn well that none of his "results" would hold up in a court of law.
"He opted instead for a press conference, which promoted Joe Farah WND, Jerry Corsi and Floyd Brown (Western center for journalism), however the press conference is of limited value in courts, as it is not in court transcripts and not under penalty of perjury."
Yep. And it really seems to bug her that World Nut Daily is giving Corsi and Arpaio the attention that Dr. Orly seems to think is her due.
"Please, contact Arpaio and urge him to cooperate, so there is some value to his comclusions. I need a sworn affidavit."
Good luck with that skippy.
And then, just in case you didn't believe that Dr. Orly's ego was the most important thing in the world to Dr. Orly:
"I am the only licensed attorney, who is pursuing in court all of the evidence that he confirmed. There were some forty attorneys, who worked in this arena. 38 fell by the wayside, they did not have the strength of character, the courage to continue."
Wow, She just slapped every single other birther lawyer in the face for not being quite has crazy as she is.
And funny thing, I seem to recall that Berg and Kreep still have lawsuits going…..
"At this time aside from myself there is only one other licensed attorney conducting eligibility cases: Van Irion, however he is scared to even touch any of the evidence of forgery and Social Security fraud. "
Dr. Orly really thinks that all of birtherstan should rally behind her banner, doesn't she??
"With me you see a proven leader, who led this fight for nearly four years."
And has a unbroken record of absolutely no wins. And even lost to an empty table.
"You know that when you donate to my work, I will not brake"
Which explains all her speeding tickets.
"I cannot win this fight alone. Every filing means thousands of dollars in fees and travel costs. I need your support to continue this fight."
"MEMEME It's all about MEEE!! Send your money to MEEEEEEEE!!!!"
12 March - The California GOP endorses Elizabeth Emken as their preferred candidate for Senator against Sen. Dianne Feinstein.
Needless to say, Dr. Orly is a mite annoyed by this. (malware and redirect warning)
"The whole endorsement process was a sham. I wasn’t even told in advance that there was an opportunity to speak in person to the board. 5 minutes before the endorsement hearing I got a call that I can address the board."
And I still suspect this was more Dr. Orly not bothering to check on such things.
"Please, help me beat Washington lobbyist Elizabeth Emken, please send a message to the party establishment and corrupt party bosses: We are fed up with you, no more. We are sick and tired of puppets"
Dr. Orly seems to be upset that the California GOP didn't do what she demanded and pick her and only her. She doesn't realize how toxic she is outside of birtherstan.
Wonder if she'll sue Emken like she did Dunn????
12 March - Tribble mobility scooter Donald Trump still likes to play birther games.
"Donald J. Trump
When I was 18, people called me Donald Trump. When he was 18, @BarackObama was Barry Soweto. Weird."
Wow, he even got that much wrong.
12 March - Rep. Cliff Stearns (R - Florida's 6th congressional district,), becomes the latest Republican to play flirty games with the birthers.
"The Florida congressman noted that there is a “general consensus” that Obama “produced a birth certificate,” but gave no indication that he agreed with this sentiment. He also advanced an phony conservative meme, debunked by Dave Weigel and others, that Hawaii’s governor was incapable of locating the birth certificate:
STEARNS: All I can tell you is that the general consensus is that he has produced a birth certificate. The question is, is it legitimate? That’s where we stand now. I’ve seen a copy of it on television. But you know the Governor of Hawaii couldn’t get what he felt was an original of the birth certificate. He tried to do it and gave up on it. So I think what Obama’s showing is a facsimile, but I think that debate probably is not enough, shall we say, just to impeach him. We’re going to have an election in five or six months so we can change the course of history by electing someone other than Obama. That’s what elections are all about. If we started impeachment this time of year, very difficult in terms of time and strength.
12 March - Sadly but not surprisingly, a recent PPP poll in Alabama and Mississippi show that the majority of Republicans polled in those states think that President Obama is a *gasp* Muslim.
"Just when you were feeling good about being an American, maybe because spring has sprung a little earlier this year, out comes some news that makes you wonder about your country. Sad to say, it appears that Obamaphobia is rampant in the South. If you listen to a majority of Republican voters in two key Southern states, President Obama lies about his religion.
Obama may claim he is Christian, but voters in Mississippi and Alabama say that is just not true. He’s a Muslim. A few others aren’t so sure what he is.
A Public Policy Poll released on March 12 that looks at the voters in the Mississippi and Alabama races and their choices in the primary also asked them about their values. No matter what you think of their choices for Tuesday’s primary, their values and lack of knowledge are truly appalling."
Where have all the sane Republicans gone??
