A fine legacy of wit and wisdom and lots of saying "WTF?" at the stupidity.

Glad we met along the way.


Pat, just wanted to say thanks. I have enjoyed your posts on the birthers since nearly the beginning. I have always looked forward to a new post by you, not because of the ugly you were illuminating, but because you educated me and made me laugh while doing so. I wish you the very best in the future and am grateful to have had the pleasure of reading your posts for such a long time.

All the best,



Thanks for all you've done! Enjoy your well-earned retirement from the birther beat.


Thanks for it all, Pat. I think many "anti-birthers" feel the same way after so many years of pure stupidity and racism.

I'll check in on your other blog from time to time.


Good job on the front lines, dude. Take the rest of the war off.


Pat, thanks for all your work. You have been a bright headline into the ignorance and hate the birthers have so much of, I miss you already.


Thanks for chronicling the events, life, and times of mass hysteria. Now, go get some fresh air, man.


All the best to you, Pat. You've been a reliable mainstay of rationality even as the haters and liars attacked you.

Thank you for all you've done.


Thanks, Pat! You done good.


Echoing the other sentiments, thanks for the laughs and keeping us all up to date, for you tread where others will not. Best of luck.

Andrew Vrba, PmG

Patrick, you've been a real treat! Your deconstruction of birtherdom will be greatly missed, but I feel ya. You can only do the same old thing so long, before you gotta move on.

Thomas Brown

What they ^ all said, and more. You were part of the sunlight disinfecting the cesspool of Birtherdom. I'll always be a fan.


You've done an outstanding job for five full years, my friend. Excellent, excellent work!


"Obots on the run!!!!"

"What's the matter, Soros cut off your Alinsky money???"

(Note to Birfers: this is me making fun of you.)

All the best, Patrick; you've earned a rest.


Thanks for your persistent and entertaining chronicles of social delusion.


Pat, Thanks for all you've done. It's been appreciated. Like a bad series, the birthers have gone to reruns, reduced to late-night local cable-access with blond-wigged Orly introducing the next failure. Enjoy and no comparing/contrasting movies with the birthers!


Great work, Pat! I'm sorry to see you retire, but I'm sure it will be a treat not to have to pour through birther websites and videos. Gee, if it wasn't for you, I'd have never know about that Rudy lunatic from Texas . . . thanks for the laughs!



I only discovered this site a couple of months ago, but I haven't been able to stop reading. I'm reading all the old posts. So far, I've worked back to Nov. 2009. Its kind of weird reading all these events in reverse chronological order. But its been fun.

Before you go, I have one question. In one of the old posts, someone (maybe you) compared Dr. Orly's lawsuits to Vogon poetry. Do the judges who are forced to sit through them have Taitz Appreciation Chairs? I don't think I could do it without one.

Dave B.

Patrick, you ARE big-- it's the birthers that got small.

Jeff Robison

Your analysis and witticisms will be sorely missed!


This blog is now a valuable treasure trove of historical crap from crap artists. Thanks and well done.

Personalty I cant wait to read your movie reviews again. :)

Vattel Toys

Thank you for your entertaining and obviously sometimes difficult work.

But more than thank you for your work, I'd like to thank you for being one of the first "obots" of reasonable enough mind to realize your time and life are more valuable spent elsewhere.
This has long been a decided issue and it takes a person who can feel confident enough to walk away from something knowing they're right and that no argument or facts will ever change the opinions of the nutcases.
To that realization, I applaud you.

Now what to do with all the ponies Orly's saved up... ;-)


The Magic M

Farewell and thanks for all the fish, uh, birther articles!


Well played sir.
Oh, I can't wait to read the spin on this over at ORYR.


While I certainly understand your desire to step back from the hatred and insanity that inhabits the birther world, we who want to know and understand the depths those people will go, we will certainly miss this blog. I can't imagine how you managed to revisit those sites time after time when- for me- just reading it here was almost too much to take at times. The unfiltered version is surely much more difficult. But do go and enjoy your life knowing that you helped to shine a light on some of the darkness. Know too, your writing on this subject will be missed.
