More newspapers are taking up the cause of Hawaii Governor Neil Abercrombie, and lauding his efforts to do what can be done to shut the birthers up. The latest is the Pulitzer-Prize-winning Seattle Times in its recent editorial, Hurrah for Hawaii governor’s anti-birther crusade.
I particularly appreciated the closing remark:
A wise man once said that a lie harms three: the speaker, the spoken of and the listener. This lie harms more than that. It demeans our country because it is aimed at undercutting with falsehoods the person we elected to be our leader.
