Ann Coulter Winks at the Birthers
The conservative author who makes a living offending liberals takes a tiny step into the land of Obama birth certificate theories with a throwaway line in her new column.
If they could, Americans would cut the power to the Capitol, throw everyone out and try to deport them. (Whereas I say: Anyone in Washington, D.C., who can produce an original copy of a valid U.S. birth certificate should be allowed to stay.)
It’s hard to figure out the joke there unless it’s about Obama’s citizenship. Just as Rush Limbaugh moved forward the “birther” conspiracy by joking about it on his show in 2008, Coulter has the power to yank this out of the fringes.
