    It’s depressing that NRO is debunking this while elected officials (Senators!?) are helping to fan the flames….Report

      I don’t know. This isn’t exactly any loopier than believing the Earth is 6,000 years old (or 10,000 or whatever), or that climate change isn’t real. I think you can find plenty of people who believe those things in the US Congress too.Report

          Screw that. Let’s start with a group of people I would trust to change a tire.

          If you’d prefer to be ruled by a bunch of morons, though, that’s your right, I guess.Report

            You didn’t go for the right strawman.

            You should have said “if you don’t want to be ruled at all, you should move to Kenya! I understand Obama has a birth certificate from there he’s not using!”Report

    From the editorial:

    “There is nothing that President Obama’s coterie would enjoy more than to see the responsible Right become a mirror image of the loopy Left circa 2003. ”

    Really? Seems to me that the loopy left spent the six years since 2003 stomping the absolute crap out of the supposedly non-loopy Right.

    Does anyone anywhere expect the GOP to capture the White House and both houses of congress in the next six years?Report

    Yeah the loopy left who said Iraq was not a good idea, the victory there was ephemeral, likely to be hard and expensive and that SH was just not that much of threat.

    In 6 years what will the country think about the Big O’s birth certificate?Report

    I think Sam M and greginak forget that this is still NRO we’re talking about. They may be smacking down the birther business, but they’re still morons. That doesn’t change just because they happen to have landed halfway on “not-crazy” this particular spin.Report
