Like the undead that roam the land these days, the birther movement seemingly can’t be killed off even by that silver bullet called reality. Zombie birther Orly Taitz is joining forces with Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio as his crack investigative team, which probably includes Steven Seagal, works on pushing the stupid yet again.
This week, birther queen Orly Taitz joined radical Arizona immigration sheriff Joe Arpaio — who is conducting his own investigation into Obama’s birthplace — at a Tea Party town hall in Arizona, where she sought to provide Arpaio with further evidence to bolster his case. Arpaio, however, surprised the crowd by telling Taitz that he has evidence even she doesn’t have. And though he can’t tell her, or anyone else, what it is, he promises it will surprise even the harshest critics of the birtherism movement:
TAITZ: Sheriff Arpaio, all I’m asking you, all you need to do, if you please forward this officially to your governor, to your secretary of state, so they can see this before they allow him to go on the ballot in 2012. (applause) [...] Sheriff Arpaio, the whole country depends on you. (applause)
ARPAIO: Thanks for your info. We’re looking at this very closely. I can’t tell you everything, but there could a shock somewhere my guys came up with, and we’ll see how that — again, I can’t talk too much about it. [...] I gotta be careful sometimes, because it’s very complex.
Ooh, I love surprises. Except it will be anything but surprising when Arpaio’s “boys” come up with some half-baked nonsense straight from the pages of the Worldnutdaily.
