GOP Rep. Eric Cantor says he’s no birther — he has no questions about Obama’s citizenship, his spokesman tells me. But Cantor is placing the blame for the spread of birtherism not on its authors or on those politicians playing along with it, but rather on Chris Matthews, MSNBC, lefty news outlets and bloggers.
So why is Eric Cantor blaming us for birtherism? As Greg points, the answer is simple. He's blaming us because he doesn't have the political courage to blame his own supporters -- most of whom are birthers.
And also too: Eric Cantor should explain how liberals managed to get Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Lou Dobbs, and the rest of the conservative establishment to embrace this loony-tunes conspiracy theory.
True, we're mocking the hell out of his crazy-ass, tin-foil hat wearing, regional rump political party. But honestly, how can you blame us?
