By the way, if you haven’t seen the movie, It’s Complicated, do yourself a favor and take a look. Perhaps the movie is the reference intended by The Hill in its article: Palin and Trump: It’s complicated. The article examines the political relationship between Donald Trump and Sarah Palin, and the nice things they have been saying about each other lately. Palin blames the media for pumping the birther issue rather than Trump for pimping it. (Also check out how NewsMax spins the story.)
By contrast, the Kansas City Star has a new article out, Media needs to ignore the nutjobs. They raise two questions:
First: Just how bleeping dumb are we, anyway?
Second: When will the mainstream news media do its job and stop enabling these crackpots?
Hmm, Doc wonders if he is enabling crackpots…
Despite Palin’s chiding and the Kansas City Star’s advice, the news media is still talking about birthers.

An intriguing article in the Christian Post talks about Donald Trump’s possible connections with Evangelical Christians in a bid for the presidency: Donald Trump, Paula White Rallying Christian Support?
“I can think of few people with the means to be president who would be worse for the country and the world than Donald Trump,” [Brian McClaren] told The Christian Post in an email. “His ‘birther’ talk, his questionable moral history, his love of money, his combative nature, his arrogance, his nationalism as opposed to a more global mindset, his carelessness towards the poor, and his love for power make him, in my mind, a horrible candidate.”
