Earlier I posted a version of "Nutballs on the California Ballot (or, the Furtwängler Principle)" over at Forbes.com, where it quickly drew a couple of puzzling comments, at least one of which was meant to be insulting. (The other one I'm not sure about.) Then someone posted this comment:
This is Orly Taitz,
instead of wasting your time on rants of useful idiots like Kevin Underhill and John Avlon, why don’t you go on my web page OrlyTaitzESQ.com or RunOrlyRun.com and read the actual pleadings and documents, which show without a shadow of a doubt tha Obama is using a CT SSN 042-68-4425, which as never assigned to him according to e-verify or SSNVS, read the press release by sheriff Arpaio, who confirmed that both the alleged copy of a birth certificate and Selective cervice certificate are forgeries. You can order a DVD of a trial in GA and watch a senior deportation officer testifying that if it would be anyone else with papers like Obama’s he would be seeking a warrant for his deportation. Our lap dog media simply does not report the truth. Welcome to Banana Republic with regime propaganda instead of free media
That does appear to be the real Orly Taitz, or at least I'm guessing it is because this is also posted on both of the mentioned websites. At OrlyTaitzESQ.com, it appears under this headline —
MY RESPONSE TO A USEFUL IDIOT IN FORBES MAGAZINE KEVIN UNDERHILL. PLEASE RESPOND TO THESE ATTACK DOGS KEVIN UNDERHILL IN FORBES AND JOHN AVLON IN DAILY BEAST
which is pretty awesome.
I do have two or three rebuttal points, though.
First, the term "attack dog" at least implies that I'm working for the other side. She's clearly mistaken if she thinks I'm a fan of Obama and/or today's Democratic Party, though, as I think I have made pretty clear. Same problem, I think, with the term "useful idiot" (which would require me to be "useful" to someone), but to be fair she may just not understand what that phrase means. I do deny being an idiot, which is not to say I've never done anything idiotic.
Second, as I mentioned, Orly has had multiple opportunities to present her birther evidence in court, and that's resulted in multiple losses. I don't know if world-renowned forensic scientist Sheriff Joe Arpaio has been asked to testify in those cases though. That could blow it all wide open.
Finally, I more or less agree that our lap-dog media simply does not report the truth, or not often enough, anyway. But I don't know why she's trying to drag Banana Republic into this.
