Birtherism - Hey Farah, Where's the 15K?

Buddy can you spare a soul?

Remember what I was saying yesterday about watching what you say to your arch-nemesis?

Well, in the case of Joseph "Mr. Mustache" Farah, it's worse than I ever imagined. Also funnier.

"We've tried the stick," said Farah. "Now let's try the carrot. Obama has said he was born in Kapi'olani Hospital in Honolulu. He participated in a fund-raiser for the medical center in January. WND will send a check in the amount of $15,000 to whatever birth hospital is listed on his long-form birth certificate. All Obama has to do to see that donation made is to release it publicly."

Well I'll be a monkeys uncle. How did I miss that? I must have been asleep in August of 2009 when that goober made that pledge.

(And Mr. Farah must have been really busy last night. As of this writing, if you go over to the original story, at WND, the paragraph has been altered, and now they're saying $10,000. They've also taken down the bumper sticker you used to be able to buy advertising the pledge drive. Holy History-Eraser Buttons, Stimpy!)

But one thing's for sure -- don't bring that up to Joseph Farah! He's not in the mood to make good on that promise right now, as this interview with Cenk Uygur shows.

He's just going to have to take his time. I'm sure he's hoping the promise will just go away in a news cycle or two.

Will it? How loud can we get?

I hereby declare MONEYWAR. From here on out, any and all efforts must be undertaken to rub Farah's nose in this promise until such time as he either pays up, or admits he's reneged on his promise.
