Palin and the Birthers

Would it surprise you to learn that Sarah Palin is a Birther, or is at least sympathetic to the Birthers? (If only we could send the whole Birther movement before one of her mythical Death Panels.)

Her stupidity is apparently a bottomless well. But is she really that stupid? Does she actually believe that there is truth to what the Birthers allege, namely, that Obama was not born in the U.S.? Or is she just a cynical liar, one who knows full well that she's spewing bullshit for partisan purposes?

I don't think she can tell the difference anymore, if she ever could, between truth and spin, nad between reality and propaganda, and so she probably does think that the Birthers are on to something. Even if it isn't true, she believes it to be true, and wants it to be true, and so, for her, it is.

One is tempted to call her an extremist, but is she? A majority of Republicans buy the Birther lie at least in part, after all, and so she's fully in the mainstream of her own party. But, then, the GOP is fully the party of right-wing extremism, and so, yes, she fits right in, stupidity and all.

  • Is there any truth to the story that she was born on Big Diomede Island and not in Idaho and therefore isn't a native born American? No wonder she slipped up and said she could see Russia -- she was in Russia! How can we really be sure where she was born without an "original" birth certificate? The answer is that we can't!

    Why won't she submit her real " long form" birth certificate? No certified copy has been seen by the press -- ever.
