It remains an open question whether any of the prominent public birthers who say such awful and untrue things about President Obama will ever be held accountable for their actions. It is certainly an anti-birther fantasy that some of these face the cold hard reality of the rigors of a cross-examination in court. While birthers are quick to repeat that Barack Obama has never sat in the witness chair to testify about his eligibility and that no court has ever examined his long-form birth certificate, it should be noted that no birther “expert” has ever stood cross-examination in court either.
Mike Zullo has never shown up here as a commenter so far as I know (not under his real name at least), but he is certainly welcome to do so. Lacking the real Mike Zullo, the cross-examination dialog that I’m going to present will attempt to put words into his mouth, words that he might say. In the dialog, I will do the questioning. Text labeled “Mike Zullo” are his actual words in public statements, and text labeled “Faux Zullo” are my idea of what he might say. The context is Mike Zullo being cross-examined on the testimony he gave at Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s press conference July 17, 2012.
In honor of this story, I have added Mike Zullo to the Who’s Who article category list. Please bear with me, since I have to type up partial transcripts of the press conference before I can write the rest of the articles in this series. It may take a day or two. I think you will like it.
