From the War Room – Alex Koppelman at Salon.com
Full disclosure: I was supposed to be on MSNBC this afternoon talking about the Birthers and their release of what they claim is a copy of President Obama’s Kenyan birth certificate. (It’s really an obvious forgery.) But shortly after I agreed to go on, the booker called and said they had to cancel. The reason why, it turns out, is that they’d booked de facto Birther movement leader Orly Taitz instead.
But in this case, I think this interview served a purpose, as Taitz did a fair amount of damage to her cause all by herself. Anyone who was on the fence and watched the interview could not possibly come away from it thinking she’s credible.
For me, this is a continuing theme I keep seeing over and over again. The birthers and teabaggers do an interview to obfuscate, lie and scream over the interviewer hoping someone will believe them. When you have facts and logic on your side, there is never a need to lie or yell. I agree with Koppelman, she hurt her chances of anyone taking her seriously after watching that. Me personally, I could only handle about three minutes of it……
