One of the differences between me and the birthers is that the birthers hope or even expect something to happen as the result of their activity contesting Obama’s eligibility as President of the United States. I have no such hopes or expectations that anything I do will make any difference. I believe Obama will remain in office until the next election and then that the voters will decide who will be the next President based on issues entirely divorced from eligibility – and I’m good with that.
Without my help, Republicans in California will reject Orly Taitz’s Senate bid. The number of birthers, I guessing, will remain fairly stable. There is no windmill that needs a lance stuck in it. The legal arguments are done and barring a new court decision, not much to challenge the mind there. I find no fun in ridiculing unfortunate people.
I say all this to explain why there hasn’t been much new material on the blog of late. I’ve been pursuing some other interests as you can see by my recent articles over at Blog or Die! I’ve been and will be traveling some too.
Knowing myself from past years, I will probably get fired up as the election heats up next year. I also intend to ease up (and already have) on “topical purity” in this site so we can talk about critical thinking or more specifically the lack thereof in the 2012 campaign. I continue to care about the human toll birtherism has on individuals and will continue to reflect that concern in articles here, such as the recent series on Darren Huff. I’ll also keep the open threads going so you folks can talk about your own birther-related interests.
