It should be obvious to everybody that birthers never accomplish anything. Their lawsuits get dismissed, their events have tiny attendance, their books don’t sell, and Barack Obama is sitting in the White House. Nevertheless, they continue to attempt to keep the enthusiasm going and to create the sense of movement when there is no movement.
There’s no better example of this than Mike Zullo and the Maricopa County Cold Case Posse who pretend to be a law enforcement investigation, but in fact just write misleading reports and promise that some day their “investigation” will produce results and that something will come of it. The real evidence, they say, can’t be released yet. Well, Mike Zullo may write another least-seller book and perhaps that is what he is waiting for.
In this short article, I wanted to highlight two instances where birthers “any day now” approach to inactivity has actually been specific, and has fizzled. The first is a remark here by commenter Hermitian, who said on May 21:
The wheels will come off your Obot wagon in two weeks.
All my wheels seem to be in place and functioning normally. I haven’t even lost any marbles.
The second is a May 26 title from Orly Taitz:
There are 7 days left for Sheriff Arpaio and CCP Director Zullo to file a criminal complaint against Barack Obama based on Zullo’s recent statements that they proved that Barack Obama’s birth certificate is a 100% forgery. If they do not file the criminal complaint, the donors will start demanding a refund of all the donations solicited and received by Arpaio, Zullo and CCP for over 2 years under false pretenses, when they stated that they need donations for the criminal investigation of Barack Obama for his use of forged IDs as a basis of his eligibility when he ran for the U.S. President in Maricopa county Arizona and elsewhere.
In fact Taitz has been publishing these titles daily, counting down to the arbitrary deadline. She claims that people are actually asking for refunds now. It just shows the impotence of the birthers that their threat resulted in nothing.
The closest thing I can come up with for such irrational optimism is gambling, only in the case of the lottery, somebody wins. The birthers will never win.
