Birther Week in Review: 3 26 11

tell your barber he's fired, too

In which Trump makes a mess, Bachman-Sorenson Overdrive have a Presidential jam session, Arizona Birther Bill WILL NOT DIE, and Farah admits to unchristian behavior

As we reported last week, Donald Trump has apparently decided to throw himself ahead of potential GOP Presidential Candidates by jumping on the Birther bandwagon before anyone else did.

(Well, except for Andy Martin, but to hell with him.)

The Trump had a chance to expound on his views on, appropriately enough, The View this week.

"Why doesn't he show his birth certificate?" a tanned Trump asked the women of "The View" and its audience.

"I want him to show his birth certificate. I want him to show his birth certificate," ...

"There's something on that birth certificate that he doesn't like," Trump declared.

"Oh that's a terrible thing to say," "View" co-host Barbara Walters said.

Whoopi Goldberg was a little less restrained in her criticism, and referred to his comments as "the biggest pile of dog mess I’ve heard in ages." One wonders if she's ever happened by World Net Daily.

n.b. The comment about there being something indemnifying on Obama's birth certificate is a long-standing slander, usually regarding his being born illegitimately or to a different father or mother than he claims. One theory has it that he's not at all Black, which makes one wonder how many Black people those theorists know.

Whether this appearance improves Trump's chances or shoots them in the foot remains to be seen. As for the wisdom of having him on the show to embarrass himself -- or the hosts -- we should remember that they let Alex Jones, on, too.

As for his chances, Trump had better get his game on quick: Michelle Bachman -- Birther Lady in Waiting -- is picking up speed for a nomination run, and gotten some backup from another, rather key Birther figure.

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) is likely to form a presidential exploratory committee, two advisers said Thursday. The committee could be formed as soon as May but no later than June.


Bachmann is currently in Iowa, speaking to grassroots activists and state legislators. This morning she addressed the state Senate caucus and has secured the support of Iowa state Sen. Kent Sorenson.

Yes, that would be THE Kent Sorenson -- architect of Iowa's birther bill. Birds of a feather flocking together? This probably won't end well at all.

In other Birther Bill news, it would appear that Arizona's defeated Birther Bill is not going down without a fight.

PHOENIX — Legislation that would require proof of U.S. birth from presidential candidates is intersecting in Arizona with the question of whether U.S.-born children of illegal immigrants are entitled to automatic citizenship.

The proposed legislation on documentation requirements for candidates asks for information on the citizenship of a candidate’s parents. Tea party backers said Wednesday they believe people are only natural-born citizens if their parents are citizens.


A Senate committee on Wednesday endorsed the bill after deleting the provision on citizenship of a candidate’s parents, but it remains in a version approved Tuesday by a House panel.

The term "parasite" is being bandied about. Always nice when Birthers have to resort to bot-fly tactics to get ahead.

And speaking of parasites, by which we mean World Net Daily, -- home of the Crisis Cooker -- Joseph Farah has once again shown his questionable journalism skills. In an editorial, he admits that he lied to passport agencies in order to find out information he could have discovered if he'd just told the truth.

Whatever happened to the ten commandments, Mr. Farah? One wonders if we will soon be seeing bylines from James O'Keefe on WND...?

See you next week, and remember: "The wise understand by themselves; fools follow the reports of others"

Hey, wait...
