Having easy access to laughing gas is not a good thing. With renewed urgency, California attorney Orly Taitz continued to beat her dead horse. At a Gingrich campaign event in Pasadena California, the leader of the birther movement appealed to fading Presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich to adopt her flailing cause. ”Somebody who wouldn’t be good enough, who wouldn’t be certified to pick tomatoes or clean bathrooms is sitting in the White House.” she emphatically stated. Not willing to take on the added weight of the birther fantasy, Gingrich said, “That’s a project you should pursue. I have enough issues to debate Obama about.”
Oh Newt. Such the politician. He once again skillfully played both sides of the fence. He of course recognizes the futility of the birther movement and the damage it might do if he were to openly embrace it. Be assured, he also knows there is a following for the nonsensical movement, so, as he has done from the beginning, he disrespectfully refers to the President as “Obama”, subliminally confirming and reinforcing the talking point that the President is not “the President” and he too questions his legitimacy. Oh Newt.
