Inside the birther mind

Thanks to Straight.com for pointing out this 2009 video they found of Phil Wolf, the car dealer who garnered world wide attention with a billboard depicting Barack Obama wearing a turban and captioned “President or Jihad?”

    I came across this just yesterday myself on YouTube. Geeeez. Also ran into the clip of Orly Taitz on 4/27 refusing to acknowledge the release of he LFBC and getting yanked. It’s a perfect snapshot of how these cranks operate. All we can do is hope to contain the outbreak and let it wither in isolation. There’s no curing these people.

    The title to this entry brings to mind a quote from the great B. Bunny:

    “Don’t go in there! Its dark!”

    ASK Esq: “Don’t go in there! Its dark!”

    I think B. Bunny was repeating a line from a very popular Abbott & Costello movie at the time. One of those “Abbott and Costello Meet The __________” movies of that era.

    Here is a list of everyone they met, cuz I have nothing better to do.
    In order of release:
    Frankenstein
    The Killer, Boris Karloff
    The Invisible Man
    Captain Kidd
    Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
    the Keystone Kops
