Birther hot spot

I keep getting these bizarre messages through this site’s contact form from conservative groups asking me to help them get in touch with potential speakers for their meetings. One wanted Orly Taitz to talk to a Republican women’s group in California. This one wants Mike Zullo to speak in Florida. I thought it was interesting since recent comments here questioned whether a legitimate investigator would talk about an ongoing investigation at Tea Party gatherings. Here’s the email:

I see from an email a tea party friend sent me, they are having Mike Zullo speak next week on his investigator research he has done.

I wanted to find a contact so that i can extend an invitation to Mike to speak at the Tea Party Manatee weekly meeting.  You can go to www.teapartymanatee.org and see our large group and you can also email me to set this up. 

Tea Party Manatee is one of the largest tea parties in FL.  We have an email list of 2,800 and a facebook of 800 members.  And, we are growing.  Last week we had the honor to have as our key note speaker Trevor Loudon from New Zealand.

A quick Google search turned up a good bit of birther activity at the Tea Party Manatee web site, and a strong Jerome Corsi connection. This very public organization may give us a window on what happened with the Surprise Tea Party in Arizona that started the Maricopa County Cold Case Posse witch hunt there.

I never know exactly how to reply to these things. In the case of Orly Taitz, I just sent them her phone number. In this case, I said enigmatically:

Are you really sure you want to have Mike Zullo speak after he was caught fabricating evidence? I wouldn’t touch the guy with a ten-foot pole.

    My understanding of how the whole Surprise! Tea Party! mess started is that Bryan Reilly got a message from God. I’ve got his account of that somewhere, and I’ll look it up for you here directly. I believe it’s in an extended comment he made at some Kentucky Tea Party page.
    You do, of course, correctly characterize it as a witch hunt, and the reason everything seems to be stalled is that Zullo has been unable to locate a duck that weighs the same as President Obama.
    I’m convinced there must be a suitable anagram for “Trevor Loudon”, but I haven’t quite got it yet.

    Between the “Please do my work for me” appeal and the tortured prose, it’s either an authentic birther message, or an expertly studied imitation!

    I’d never heard of the man before I read about him in the article, but after reading up on him a bit, that’s kind of the direction I was heading.

    I found it! Not the anagram, but Brian Reilly’s message from God (it was North Carolina, not Kentucky):

    “This project came together flawlessly because it truly was the Lord’s will.”

    My favorite Schoolhouse Rock’s were the ones performed by Bill Sheldon, a jazz trumpeter who used to crack wise on the Merv Griffin Show band.

    I’m Just a Bill was one of his bests, I think.

    G September 24, 2012 at 9:59 am #

    Yeah, I’m Just a Bill is another one of the greats!

    I have the full collection in multiple formats at home (I kept picking them up as new ones came out), so I’ve got them on VHS, DVD, CD and even a compilation of popular 1990’s bands performing cool covers of them (School House Rock Rocks).

    I think the manatee would be ashamed to be associated- but in reality- the manatee is a beautiful creature who is about as smart as a cow, eats seagrass, and just lumbers along and has no sense of self preservation.

    Maybe Tea Party Manatee is more apt that I originally thought.

    Since you say Obama is “ineligible to be in office,” then by your logic Obama had no authority to send Christopher Stevens’ nomination to the Senate for confirmation, yet you call him “ambassador stevens” when he couldn’t have been an ambassador at all. Please explain. I’ll wait.

    I was scrolling through my Google Reader \for Doc’s comment feed seeing the title Birther Hot Spot and later a comment from G. My 7:30 am brain combined the 2 replacing the Hot in the Birther Hot Spot with the letter G.

    And then, I had a sad.
