Skip to comments.Short Bus's Obama Birth Certificate Defense Is Officially ZOTTED
Posted on 03/02/2012 9:17:36 AM PST by Short Bus
Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Arizona is bound and determined to make sure we never forget the embarrassment of the birther movement. Most of us would love to put that ugly little racist blip in our history -- a time when conspiracy theorists and fools alike accused President Barack Obama of not being American. But Arpaio, a sheriff in Phoenix, Arizona, just won't give it up.
Can we say beating a dead horse, people? Sometimes it seems like certain politicians just do things to help out Stephen Colbert, Jon Stewart, and Bill Maher. After all, how else does anyone explain Arpaio's inane and insane assertion that Obama, a man who produced his birth certificate last year, isn't American?
See his ranting [here].
"Forgery or fraud may have been committed," says Arpaio. Ooooh no! Are ghosts and goblins real, too, Sheriff Arpaio? How about the Loch Ness Monster? Do you go visit old Nessie on your days off from enforcing the laws of Arizona?
In all seriousness, this is vile racism plain and simple. In a place like Arizona, it's no surprise -- after all, many politicians there (including Arpaio) hold rather Draconian views on immigration -- and it's disgusting. And it's getting old fast.
For all you doubters for whom book learning was apparently a challenge, here are the facts: President Barack Obama was born in Honolulu on August 4, 1961. He has produced both a certificate of live birth during the 2008 campaign and the long-form certificate last year. Neither has been disproved.
So why is this still going on? Arpaio seems like a joke, but, according to Obama campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt, Republican Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney doesn't think so. Yesterday LaBolt tweeted:
Romney has called Arpaio for his endorsement, his aides called "weekly" and Arpaio was his honorary Chair in 08.That's embarrassing. The fact is, most people agree Arpaio is a few cards shy of a full deck, but here we are still talking about him. Is this an alternate universe? Why am I guessing this guy is the type of person who stays at parties hours after they have ended asking for more chips and guacamole? Dude, the party is over, the ship has sailed, and you are beating a dead horse.
Sadly, there aren't enough cliched ways to say IT'S OVER to make it any clearer to this guy.
Yes, but I’d hate to bother them when we can just go to the grocery store tomorrow.
If you follow their guidance, you’ll never run out of food again.
You’ll also lose one of the rooms of your house.
Gather the youth into a work team, harvest some wheat, and then have them thresh it.
Once done, the youth can then hand grind the wheat into flour.
IF Ash lets them.
Stick to your mortars, Darks. Leave the pestle-ence to others.
Yeah, I’m not one of the four horseplay guys of the apocalypso.
One of us! One of us! One of us!
(Should this have been all caps? Please excuse any gaffe. Have been driving a hundred miles in several directions all day so that hubby could have root canal done. Here’s hoping that it will improve his general health!)
Good night and sweet dreams, y’all!
Does it seem like animals mess w/Darks’ head? Same thing happens w/my husband. I used to think he was anthropomorphizing or making stuff up, but over the years, it’s plain that he wasn’t exaggerating. When you see them all consorting, they behave in the most bizarre and undignified ways. The catz really let it all hang out around Mr. SG.
Thank you for Kathleen update! Was gone all day. Did I miss report on Elen’s part in Olympiad activities of last weekend?
I read about the genetics component....
Darksheare’s coffee makes deer behave weirdly. Not sure what it does to other species. If you find out, could you please ping the rest of us? Thx!
Are you series?!!!!!!!!!!! A bobcat domestic mix????? How did you acquire her? I know a couple of Maine Coons that aren’t that big! (They’re my godkittens.)
Sorry that I was gone all day. I’ll send you several degrees (F or C—whatever you prefer.) ;-)
LOL! Hey when it is that cold usually means no snow!! So good thing! Give Crowbar a hug for me!
Hard to say, but this is what happened to one poor fool tried it with coffeemate!
Hug delivered w/interest!
I always thought K was cool.
I was a bumper sticker that read. I don’t suffer from insanity, I enjoy every minute.
Can someone enjoy insanity? Can someone know their are insane? Is sanity an absolute or can you be partially insane?
Can you judge a driver by his bumper sticker?
I say you should have a good idea what a book is about by the cover. If you can’t judge a book by it’s cover it has a lousy publisher.
She was a lovely cat, complete with ruff, ear tufts & long fur between
her toes... she hated if you touched her ruff. She was born outside to a
cat my mom eventually caught. Her cat was a calico with rather stumpy
legs, stocky body & a shorter than usual tail. As for the father, he was
even bigger than my brother’s cat. Mom said he was almost the size of
a medium dog, a little smaller. The area we lived in had bobcats in the
woods behind our house, the whole area had nice woodlands. I suppose
he can tell the rest, I only know what I’ve been told.
I resemble that remark, absolutely.
"If you cant judge a book by its cover it has a lousy publisher."
Even when a book's premise insane, it's often profitable for the publisher to telegraph their intentions.
That suggests cannibalism. But if we had a basement ...
