Obama Birther Billboard Spotted
WorldNetDaily has been crowing about (and soliciting donations for) “Where’s the Birth Certificate?” anti-Obama billboards for months, but I hadn’t actually seen one. The first one’s finally up in Louisiana, and Robert Morgan reports and talks to Glenn Ward, who sold WND the space:
“When you’re a small businessman like me, you have to hustle. When I saw the message that (WND Editor Joseph Farah) was planning a billboard campaign, that caught my eye,” he said. Farah’s e-mail address was on the Web site, he said. “So I just started typing a message, and within minutes I got a message back. It was the guy himself.” [...]
From a business standpoint, Ward said it is a positive transaction, having gotten him mention in London, England, news media and elsewhere.
Any publicity is good publicity, and this probably isn’t a career-killer in one of the very few states that gave more of its votes to John Kerry in 2004 than to Barack Obama four years later.
