The Iron Law of Birtherism
By Jon Perr


As tax cut-receiving Tea Baggers and town hall hecklers continue their tirades over health care reform, their kin in the Obama birth certificate denial crowd perpetuate their mass delusion. But lost in the fury is what might be deemed the Iron Law of Birtherism. That is, the birther movement is strongest in precisely those states where Republicans poll best and health care is worst. And as it turns out, there is a Birther Corollary: education, working conditions and myriad other indicators of social failure are generally most dismal in the most red of states.

In the staggering DailyKos/Research 2000 poll released 10 days ago, a stunning 58% of Republicans did not believe (28%) or were unsure (30%) that President Barack Obama was in fact born in the Uni

  • The blatant partisan hackery outweighs any legitimate points you may have, thus I dismiss this entire post.
    Re-approach from a more neutral perspective, or continue to be dismissed as a lunatic.

    • And the overtly pro-conservative posts? Partisan hackery, I suppose?

      "You have an opinion, therefore you are not worth listening to." Good call. You'll get far in life.

    • "And the overtly pro-conservative posts? Partisan hackery, I suppose?"

      Yes they are, when they try to pass off opinion as facts. Typically by the time I find those posts, there has already been such an opposing response that any contribution I may have would be akin to throwing a cup of gas on a refinery fire, so I usually pass them by.

    • google "birth certificate", "real", and "obama" (yawns)

      let me know how many experts saw the real one and not just the copy. then let me know how you feel about this issue still being promoted -- and why you think certain people are still promoting it

      i'll tell you one thing: the Department of Health in Hawaii must have a real psychic working there. not very easy to produce a birth certificate, that far ahead of time, knowing that that one person will become Presi More..

  • Yeah, idiots who voted for Obama. 2 million unemployed and a president who rules by dictate, just like Hitler, hiring and firing CEO's, dictating pay and forcing socialized medicine on a country that does NOT WANT IT.

    • Well he WAS elected on that platform... so I would think whether you happen to like the voters or not, the choice was made by a majority of Americans. So waiting until AFTER the election to voice your opinion is kinda pointless...

    • Thats the far right lunacy in a nut shell!! And nutty they are!
      Racist, conspiracy loon, and every false narrative known to a wingnut all in one short remark.
      Can a human pretend they're a parrot?? Repeating regressive drivel like a parrot proves just that.

  • Heres one for you, Obama could & would not Qualify to be in the FBI or Secret Service, he would not be even considered for either service, because of his past. So how can he be President? This is a true fact.

  • Shit, yes, it's biased, but less so than a lot of the crap the righties post, e.g. Beck and O'Reilly, and it does have some factual basis. (Yeah, I know, there's lies, damn lies, and statistics.) I voted for the asshat, and I admit I am somewhat disappointed, but I don't believe I ever claimed that he was anything but another Clinton of a different hue. I would still do the same thing, because I still believe that McCain/Palin was the worse choice, by a long shot. I used to kind of like McCa More..
