In one of the more bizarre moments in the annals of journalism (term used loosely), bottom-fishing right-wing publisher Joseph Farah wrote a tawdry smear on the occasion of the President’s birthday, casting innuendo about Obama’s birth, which in and of itself is not unusual. What was really outside the norms of civilized discourse was this: “While the media and the failed Washington political establishment would like it to just go away, that will never happen.
Not as long as I am around to sit on Obama’s birthday cake.
That video clip was funny. The image of Joseph Farah sitting on Obama’s cake is disgusting. Farah doesn’t tell us whether his pants would be up or down.
Even taken metaphorically and devoid of the mental image it invokes, Farah’s statement shows what a mean and spiteful person he is.
