Title: Political, but more suited for Apple Talk...
Post by: Cainad (dec.) on March 23, 2012, 04:25:17 pm
Birthers want proof that Mitt Romney was born in America (http://now.msn.com/now/0322-romney-vs-birthers.aspx#scptm2)

It's only a soundbite news article, and the whole incident is no doubt a blip in the radar, but I got a chuckle.

I'm calling thinly veiled ploy to be able to say "We're fair and balanced."

I had that thought too. Some stooges pull the same retarded schtick on Romney, and then the Birthers can claim "it's totally not about race."

Especially when the eventually verify the certificate, claiming this adds more weight to their Obama=Kenyan routine.

It's so cleverly stupid that it just might work.

Yup second sentence says it all: "You might think birthers are crazy conspiracy theorists, but you can't say they're inconsistent."

When this is over in a few days because the certificate was "verified"/no one cares/whatever, it'll be something to point back at to say "see, we're fair".

Except that people will actually believe that because a TV somewhere said that and will actually use it as a serious argument and I'll just be :facepalm:

I'm reading "WE WANT SANTORUM!  WAAAAAAAH!"

And a little bit of "Let's try to make it look like we weren't dogging on the Black dude.  And would someone please shut Joe Arpeio up?"
