Fishing for gold coins in a bucket of mud

Photo of Dr. Conspiracy without a hatFinding gold coins in a bucket of mud is really not difficult because gold is heavier than mud. The coins sink to the bottom and can be retrieved efficiently in any number of simple ways. Just as the coins collect at the bottom of the bucket, so do the more unsavory birthers collect at the Birther Report™ web site and on other forums and blogs.

Those sometimes angry, sometimes vulgar, and sometimes racist birthers are not a cross section of people who check YES on polls about having doubts on where Obama was born. No, those responses are from people who are active on the issue, and in the case of Birther Report™ they are truly what has sunk to the bottom of the barrel.

The present stance of Obama Conspiracy Theories focuses on reporting stories about birthers. Just as “dog bites man” is not news, neither is “birther doubts Obama.” To make the news here, a birther has to behave badly, or in a laughably stupid manner. So just as I have to keep reminding myself that what I read at Orly Taitz Esq. is not representative of all birthers, I remind you too.

    “laughably stupid” is a fairly accurate description of Gerbil Report.

    Wow! I was so sure that her address is DrOrlyTaitzEsq.com! Did she had to change it when her website was down?

    If I might:

    You’ve never found a single gold coin. Hence the title of this blog is “Fishing for gold coins in a bucket of mud since 2008,” and not “Finding gold coins in a bucket of mud since 2008.”

    The radical birthers aren’t gold coins that sink to the bottom of the mud-bucket; rather, they are the gas-bloated turds that float on top.

    Equally easy to pick out (easier in fact since they float conveniently on the top). However, I just thought I might point out their actual nature.
