“Where’s the birth certificate?” became “Where’s the real birth certificate?” and to emphasize moving the goalposts, their latest publicity stunt was to fly a banner over the Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, TX, during last Sunday’s game.
What do you expect from someone who likes to sit on peoples’ birthday cakes?
Spending money to fly their banner over the closed dome- another stunning birther success!
But where’s the trrrrrue Scotsman?
Damn that’s funny………
In fundy land, the world never changes …. the Cowboys, America’s Team, still play in Texas Stadium, which has a hole in the roof, allowing God to watch the games. No doubt this was an attempt by the birthers to wave their gospel in the Creator’s face …..
The game last Sunday between the Cowboys and the Giants was played at 7:30 PM Dallas time, about 3 hours after sunset. Since the video shows bright daylight, the fly-by had to have been several hours before the game. Which would explain the virtually empty parking lot.
Wouldn’t the parking lot be filled with tailgaters before a game? This looks like the banner was flown on non-game day.

The audience isn’t the well-to-do inside the stadium, the liberal elites who can afford $300 football tickets. They want to reach the tailgate partiers, and the people who hang out around Lake Grapevine.
Liberal elites in Dallas? The elites who are buying up $300 tickets and noshing in the luxury suites aren’t exactly the liberal elite. More like the Cowboys owner, who is a dyed in the wool right-wing Republican.
i wonder if someone will ever send up another banner afterwards that says `in hawaii you morons´.
The banner, of course, is for WND readers…
Forget chem trails. The cretins from WND have Clem trails.
What’s next? Dropping turkeys?
With God their witness, the staff at WND thought that turkeys could fly.
This belongs on failblog
Certainly no shortage of turkeys at WND. I got a good laugh from your comment. Thanks.
They finally ended turkey drops….didn’t they?
Definitely a desperate “Look, loyal readers! We’re Doing Something!” ploy. Anyone know if this is an actual event? Not that I think WND pass off a forgery…oh look, video:
14 secs, low-res, and mostly still frames being panned/zoomed. Nothing indicates plane was there on the day claimed, or for any length of time if at all. And the red in the photo above is heavily enhanced.
Texas Stadium was demolished a couple of years ago. The Cowboys now play in Cowboys Stadium, which has a retractable roof.
The tailgaters aren’t also ticket holders?
Also, the temperature at Lake Grapevine never got above 53 on Sunday, so I doubt that the area was packed with people.
Ricky, that was my point, jesting that birthers weren’t up to speed on that, because in a fundamentalist world, nothing ever changes.
So let me get this straight. You’re actually proposing that the intended target audience was some “tailgate pariters” who fought traffic down to the stadium, waited in line to get into the parking area, paid the exorbitant parking fee, just to hang around in a parking lot and cook hotdogs, even though they didn’t have a ticket to see the game?
You’re welcome. The “Turkey Drop” is one of my all time favorite TV episodes. It makes me wonder what aliens must think of us as the waves shoot out into the universe.

Some people do exactly that …. they just want to be there.
However, the notion that football stadiums are full of “liberal elites” is simply hysterical. I know every packed stadium I have been in was overflowing with bleeding-heart sentimentality. Has this person been to a football game? He believes conservative = dirt poor salt of the earth type? Have another glass of propaganda!
It was a joke. chill. your response was pretty insulting.
Thanks for the WKRP Turkey memories.
Just think- Les Nessman would be considered way too professional for WND.
I printed this picture, scanned it to an optmized PDF, and opened it in Illustrator… obviously Photoshopped!
Shouldn’t that be Acrobatted and then Illustratored?
(If people insist on flogging the English language by making verbs from the names of products that are registered trademarks, at least butcher the right ones.)
Ah, your snark flew right over my head!
I didn’t realize that you were joking, either. Sorry about that.
All joking aside, yes — this is a thing. The only other thing I can compare it to would be the parking lot at a Dead show. (But only in the sense of hordes of the ticketless creating a scene of their own, adjunct to the event.) People do similar things at motorsports events as well.
Hmmmm interesting. I was completely unaware of that. I’ve only ever gone to games I actually had a ticket for, or would purchase at the door, so I guess I just never noticed those people.
Does seem kind of counter productive, but no more so than joining the back of a 5000 person line for tickets to a 1000 person theater. I’ve seen that more than once.
So, the birther mind is like being 80,000 people short of a full stadium?
In Chicago, recently they have made a big deal about no tailgating during the game. I believe this had something to do with those who come to tailgate and not go to the game, and thus, keep partying outside the stadium.
Not having been to a Bears game, I cannot speak to any experience .
the picture of WND’s banner over a closed stadium during daylight hours when it was a night game was featured on Olberman’s Countdown. Can you see the WND readers cheering on as if the lack of people in the dome saw anything
Joe Farah was featured as worst person (or should I say stupid – WOW STUPID)
My vote is on “AcroBATTERed and IllustraTORN”. 😉
You are missing the obvious that’s hiding in plain sight: WHERE IS THE (REAL) PLANE? *lol*
Or hiding in plane (cite).
Not to mention that the parking lot at Cowboys Stadium doesn’t open for 5 hours before game time. So, it wouldn’t have been open before 2pm.
The cars that are there are probably stadium staff.
this is why joan baez usually rocks the halftime show at the superbowl.
Fox 4 News in Dallas – Ft. Worth reports:
“It has previously flown above other large politically-themed gatherings.”
…Really? Nobody saw it then, either???
LOL! I was about to say the same thing!
You have lost your mind!
Farah is shameless. He doesn’t care where he gets his webhits from.
How many people saw the actual “Where’s the Birth Certificate” billboards on the side of the road vs. those who saw an image of it on the internet?
Same with this stunt. As long as people are talking about WND, Farah doesn’t care whether it’s flattering or mocking.
