Asked about a legal complaint about President Obama's citizenship that was thrown out of court recently, Taitz ignored the question and instead began rambling about a judge in California who has agreed to hear one of her challenges. "This is a major victory!" she proclaimed.
After trying and failing to interrupt Taitz several times, Ratigan finally shouted, "Orly, Orly! This is not a monologue, Orly! Now I will let you answer, but you will let me ask you questions or you will not come on this show. OK?" Orly laughed and responded, "OK, that's a real threat." She did not seem moved and, in fact, she used the next available opportunity to begin a new speech.
Asked why she thought one judge was hearing her conspiracy theories when another had dismissed them, and why she was continuing to challenge Obama's birth certificate in the face of so much evidence, Taitz responded, "I mean, how can you lie to your viewers like this? ... Nobody in this country, not one single person, has seen a hospital birth certificate... "
Ratigan cut her off again. "The genius thing about people like you is that you like to accuse others of lying as a way to cut a boulevard so you can just blather on a bunch of lies,"
I find it comical that no matter how many times the insnae claims of the Birthers are knocked down, the more certain the arguments of the people making those same stupid are the next time around. The same illogic seems to apply to many of the Republican myths reagrding reality, whether it is climate change, evolution, economic policy, foreign policy, anything. It doesn't matter that we can prove them wrong over and over again, these people believe in one thing, they fact that they are right and we will all be left behind by the rapture when judgement day comes.
But Orly Taitz and teh birthers take the cake. I think it is pretty obvious that the birther movement is a rac based issue, because our President is black and has a funny sounding name it just seems obvious to some ignorant peons that he can't possibly be American. Just as it is obvious to we the reality based that the birthers can't be adults.
And just like the evolution deniers, the climate change deniers or a number of other myths passed off as fact, there is no proof good enough, no fact solid enough to disprove their insane faith that they are right, despite all the evidence to the contrary. Facts do not matter, if it suited their needs these people would start telling us the world is flat and the moon is made of cheese.
So I welcome this OWNING of teh stupid Queen of the Birthers. I would love to see more of it. I think we should put a statue of Orly Taitz next to the Republiican National Headquarters with a sign next to it that reads "Rinse, Wash, Repeat"
And my response? HA HA!
