Ms Taitz and World Net Daily have been cooperating on a rather transparent project : the object of which is to destroy the reputation of the very popular , recently elected President of the United States-Barack Hussein Obama.
The method used is to insist the President was NOT born in the United States (or,alternatively, that he was automatically granted his father's British citizenship) and is thus ineligible to serve as President.
Quite recently, Dr. Taitz (she is a dentist, mail-order lawyer,and realtor) unveiled what she described as a birth certificate proving President Obama had been born in Kenya.
Not content with displaying an image on the internet, she also filed suit, demanding (among other things) the Secretary of State be compelled to confirm the validity of the document.
Orly's fans on Free Republic (Freepers) were all agog ! One could almost hear the church bells being rung in a victory celebration.
At last ! America would be freed from the "Kenyan Usurper". (That's the polite way of talking about "one of those people" now.)
Alas for the Birthers and Freepers : the "smoking gun " from Kenya turned out to be a snarky prank by an Obama supporter !!!
The reaction on Free Republic was mostly fury : not because Orly Taitz had duped them again, but because they had been made to look foolish for believing her.
I'm including a link for anyone who is interested, but must warn there were over 400 responses at the time I posted this.
So: how about the other players ? World Net Daily - after a brief burst of self-congratulatory enthusiasm - has glumly decided the "Kenyan" document is a hoax.
Orly Taitz ...apparently decided it would be a great time to visit the folks in Israel ; but , I'm sure she'll be back !
America needs a little humor break in these difficult times !
