They’re Still Out There

Like that sitcom “Rules of Engagement” and acid reflux, birtherism is back for another little run.

Michigan state Sen. Tom Casperson, a Republican who represents the state’s 38th District, went on a Lansing, Mich. radio program on Tuesday and was asked right of the bat whether he believes President Barack Obama was born in the U.S. His response?

“Don’t know,” Casperson said.

Ah, yes. Another politician embarks on a journey into the birther swamp.

“I don’t know because it seems like that issue was dropped immediately as far as the major media went,” Casperson told host Michael Patrick Shiels. “My gut tells me if it had been a different president, like say George W. Bush, they’d have been digging into that like there was no tomorrow, trying to get to the bottom of, which they never really did try to get to the bottom of. So it became a conspiracy theory and no big deal.”

Okay, the bottom of this is that anyone who still thinks the president wasn’t born in Hawai’i and questions his legitimacy to office after two elections is a racist loser.  Check, please.

HT to FC.

2 barks and woofs on “They’re Still Out There

  1. I am amazed at the lack of common sense and “Christian” fellowship these guys show. The fact they get elected also says a lot about our voters.

    • So long as the US continues to elect Presidents who aren’t in “the club” we’ll have this kind of b@tsh!tt#ry.

      IF – as has been debated – HRC had won in 2008, we’d have the same sort of discussion of illegitimacy, except that HRC would be disqualified because of her ladybits and “cycles” (on top, of course, of her having already been President from 1992-2000(Bill didn’t count, a wife’s “submission to her husband” notwithstanding), and Vince Foster, and Whitewater, and… and…). Edwards would have been hounded out of office by 2010 because of his “little indiscretion”. There’s nobody who’s not a True Follower who will satisfy them.

      Don’t forget that half the opposition to JFK was because he didn’t go to the right church: after 9/11, anything that so much as hints of the remote possibility of a distant connection to anything unXtian is now fair game, and the only thing that will make these volk happy is a Good Ol’ Boy who goes to the right church, plays golf at the same (segregated) courses, takes “campaign contributions” from the same wingnuts, and rubs elbows with the same loons will do.
