Did you know that Lord Christopher Monckton, known around LGF as the Original Swivel-Eyed Loon for his long history of obtuse, deceptive climate change denialism, his frequent appearances on the Alex Jones show, and his testimony to the House Energy Independence and Global Warming Commitee as the Republican Party’s sole expert witness in 2010, is also a Birther?
Today he has a piece appealing to the odd people who read World Net Daily to support Arizona’s Birther law enforcement official, Sheriff Joe Arpaio, that actually makes one fear for his sanity: For Sheriff Joe, the Clock Is Ticking.
One of the many dismal failures of the GOP since 2008 has been its failure to get to grips with the birth certificate issue.
The reason for the Republicans’ cowardice was very clearly spelled out to me by a senior and experienced GOP congressman over dinner at my club in Washington, D.C., a couple of years ago. “We all know the birth certificate is bogus,” he said, “but we also know that anyone who dares to raise the issue will have his or her reputation trashed by the communist left.”
In my assessment, it is only when the GOP commands both the Senate and the House that it may find what in English we should call the cojones to do something about the birth certificate.
[… crazy ranting …]
If the GOP wins the Senate, and even if it does not win the Senate, let it at last find the guts to do what it should have done long before now. Let it say yes to Sheriff Joe’s request that it should initiate a congressional investigation of this affair. And let the states’ attorneys general of Hawaii and Arizona step down. They should be ashamed of themselves.
They are not fit to hold office. Let theirs, together with that of the head of the Secret Service, be the first of countless heads that must roll throughout the governing class to root out the corruption of which the flagrantly bogus “birth certificate” is an enduring and disfiguring symbol. Enough is enough. It is time for Uncle Sam - and the GOP - to find the cojones to act.
