And here is the biggest issue. It isn't just that they lie. It is that they lie so often and so shamelessly - so brazenly and confabulate their twisted fantasies with all that they touch. They do it so frequently that their lies begin to stick.

This is the legacy of Carl Rove taken to its logical conclusion.

goddamned frank's way of putting this is "it doesn't matter if you think it's true-- you just need to be willing to say it". That's it in a nutshell. Shameless hackery.

Is "nirther" one of those typo-jargon things like "pwned" and "newsfroup" or does it refer to some specific strain of birther?

It's from one of Pamela Geller's illiterate rants. She had a type in a headline once -- "Nirther". LGF picked up on that and uses it to mock all birthers. It's a nice way of not only mocking Geller, but the birther's total lack of connection to reality and disregard for accuracy. Not fixing typos is the least of their issues, but a nice way of capturing their total lack of any sort of fact-checking.

(most of geller's rants are riddled with typos, most hilariously including misspellings of her own name. I am convinced she mostly blogs while drunk. She's certainly vlogged while drinking and appearing drunk, so this isn't just an unsupported slur on my part, sadly.)

Well, timing. Remember, Obama castigated AT&T and other corporations for saying they'd have to take huge loss write-offs under his new HCA, before he understood that...whooops.... it's The Law.

I'm sorry, is this comment related to my post in some way? Or were you just trying to provide us with another example of ODS?

Where is the birth certificate????? All that I have seen is a certif of live birth with the certif no. blacked out. If we had the certif No. we could determine when it was issued.

When do you think it was issued and where? On Krypton, real birth father Jor-El?

Your views are appreciated and I really respect you as an individual
