Poe's law

From the "surely-you-can't-be-serious department"... it's probably a well-known fact that birthers are batshit insane, but even I didn't expect them to be THIS insane:

On Friday, February 3, 2012 the death knell of America the Beautiful tolled across the fifty states and around the world. An administrative judge in the state of Georgia rewrote the Constitution and ruled in favor of putative president Barack Hussein Obama declaring him a Natural Born Citizen and eligible to be on their state ballot. Our rule of law is no more. Our Constitution is no more. Obama, Soros, state media, activist judges and all the ‘powers that be’ of a New World Order sealed our fate. The United States is a land of liberty no more.

You'd think that this whiny, hand-wringing concoction of quacking fruitloopery and turgid pomp is the work of an exaggerating parodist, perhaps a writer for The Onion, that nobody could REALLY write this in earnest — but you'd be wrong.

They're serious. And don't call them Shirley.

"Baa ram ewe, baa ram ewe.." =:)

Birthers really are the gift that keeps on giving, epitomised by that episode's star, the dentist-cum-lawyer, Orly Taitz.

That's one way of putting it. :) It's the kind of gift that gives you an intense desire to scrub yourself when you've looked at it for too long, though — just reading about how crazy these people (first and foremost "ORLY?" Taitz herself) really are is enough to make you feel soiled.
