‘The Same Is True With the Birth Certificate Thing’
Debra Medina digs herself a deeper hole — with the conservative netroots, if not with Republican primary voters — with this explanation of her 9/11 Truth comments.
The 9/11 Commission report, you know, great sections of that are redacted and they’re top secret. That makes us all wonder, well what’s happening back there? The same is true with the birth certificate thing. I think it’s healthy that people are asking questions.
This is how WorldNetDaily has often (not always, as when it’s indulged the ridiculous “Obama has dual citizenship” claims of Orly Taitz) framed the “birther” issue. It’s not about attacking Obama per se, and it’s certainly not about racism. It’s about not trusting the mainstream media and the government. And Medina’s gambit — if that’s what it is — to frame her Truther comment as just plain speaking about not trusting the government is smart, if we take seriously polling on Southern attitudes about the “birther” conspiracy.
