Joseph Farah, in his Aug. 10 column, complains that he and his fellow travelers are being ridiculed over their birther obsession.
Is a guy whose website currently features a birther claims cribbed from a supermarket tabloid really complaining about being ridiculed?
Farah doesn't seem to understand that he sets himself up for such ridicule when his website embraces unproven supermarket tabloid claims, slobbers all over incompetent lawyer Orly Taitz while hiding said incompetence from its readers, and publishes information it can't be bothered to find out if it's true before publication, the "Kenyan birth certificate" being only the latest example.
In other words, Farah and WND deserve the ridicule it receives because they act in such a clownish, unprofessional matter and embrace the fringe crazies who promote the birther story.
Farah then defends the birther movement: "It's a leaderless movement – the hardest kind to crush. And it's righteous because it is rooted in the desire for truth and upholding the Constitution."
Well, no. As we've detailed, Farah cares more about running his partisan playbook and selling trinkets than he does the Constitution -- after all, as far as he's concerned, the birth certificate is nothing more than the new Vince Foster.
