That’s the phrase that I would use to characterize the ending of 2010 for the birthers. I hope everyone will read Great Birther Moments In 2010 at the Oh, For Goodness Sake blog. It’s a great recap of what’s happened this past year.
When I look back at things from this last day of 2010, I see not much cheer for the birthers. All their great hope lawsuits have been to the Supreme Court and been denied. Terry Lakin plead guilty and tearfully said that disobeying orders was not the way to get his questions answered. Taitz lost her bid for political office. National birther events haven’t generated enough attendance to fill a school bus. There just isn’t much left besides a bunch of foul-smelling web sites spinning rumors and telling lies. It’s pretty pathetic.
On a further negative note, there is a much more unsympathetic administration in Hawaii that has no vested interest in preventing the public from knowing exactly what the state knows about Barack Obama’s birth. The economy is finally starting to recover. All of this bodes ill for the birthers.
