What’s my motivation?
I’ve made a number of small mistakes on the blog the last couple of months. Sorry about that. It’s a lack of attention to detail. Let’s face it: I’m bored.
The real edge in birtherism was the question of whether they might sway a close presidential election. Well, they didn’t. That was really the end of the story.
Sure there are some lawsuits, and Orly Taitz is running for California Attorney General, and Zullo is being his usual inflated faux law enforcement self. You could almost write a computer program to automate an anti-birther blog with a headline generator based on “[insert birther name] fails again!” or “Orly Taitz: [insert crazy thing]!”
But look at me: I’m reduced to covering comments at Birther Report for news. What is the drama in a court decision you substantially knew before the case was filed? (I have to give credit to blogger NBC who seems to have gotten his second wind of late.)
I got an email today from birther Al Halbert who said it was a “slow news day,” as an excuse for writing about my “Private Obot Thread” (I couldn’t find his piece).
The shattering of the Universe is a non event, the only question being whether it will not shatter this month or not shatter some other month. Even ridicule, the last bastion of comfort against the crazies, sounds flat, like beating a dead horse.
As they say, the night is darkest before the dawn.
