Palin’s Birther Boo-Boo
Sarah Palin’s trying to distance herself from her Birther-pandering remarks now, like any weasely politician does when called on an outrageous remark: Sarah Palin: Stupid Conspiracies | Facebook.
Voters have every right to ask candidates for information if they so choose. I’ve pointed out that it was seemingly fair game during the 2008 election for many on the left to badger my doctor and lawyer for proof that Trig is in fact my child. Conspiracy-minded reporters and voters had a right to ask… which they have repeatedly. But at no point – not during the campaign, and not during recent interviews – have I asked the president to produce his birth certificate or suggested that he was not born in the United States.

So the lesson Palin takes from this is: “They do it to me, so I have a perfect right to do it to them!”
How presidential is that?
Meanwhile, take a look through the 1300+ comments for her Facebook post and you’ll realize why she’s pandering to Birthers — there are hordes of them in her fanbase.
