Punkin’ the Nirthers
That “Kenyan birth certificate” promoted by World Net Daily, Orly Taitz, Free Republic, and quite a few bloggers turns out to have been a deliberate prank on the Nirthers. They were well and truly punk’d.
The first words I wrote immediately after seeing the latest incarnation of the Nirth Certifikit:
Today we get a ludicrous effort by head Nirther Orly Taitz to foist off an obviously fake “Kenyan birth certificate” with Barack Obama’s name on it.
Not that I would ever say “I told you so.”
Or nya nya, Freepers, nya nya.
Or anything childish like that.
