'Birthers' no longer effing fools or idiots

The shoe is now on the other foot...


''It's like Jay Leno joked a few weeks back: "Obama is so unpopular now even Democrats are asking for his birth certificate."
Maybe, sooner or later, even some journalists – besides the WND staff – might begin asking.James Taranto of the Wall Street Journal is a smart guy.''
Sometimes smart guys outsmart themselves – meaning they think too hard and too long about issues and actually end up taking the counterintuitive, illogical position.
That's just what he did when he joined the rest of the Big Media flock and staked out a position that anyone raising questions about Barack Obama's birth certificate and constitutional eligibility was crazy and barking up the wrong tree.
But now he, too, seems to be coming around – at least conceding that perhaps this issue has gone so viral (58 percent of Americans don't buy Obama's birth story) that it has become a major liability for the White House occupant.
It seems Taranto was surprised to see MSNBC's Chris Matthews cajoling two other lefties the best strategic step for Obama to take now would be to release the darn thing and prove he's a "natural born citizen" of Hawaiian origin. He also noticed new Hawaiian Gov. Neil Abercrombie taking a similar position.

"So we now have three or four liberal Democrats – the 'Hardball' trio and possibly the Aloha governor – taking what had been a birtherian position in favor of releasing the archival certificate," wrote Taranto.
And now here's Taranto's delicate retreat: "Our view has long been that the birthers are playing a sucker's game – that they are aiding Obama by making it easier for his supporters to depict his critics as wackos and divert attention from real questions about his political character. This change in liberal attitudes may be a sign that the game is no longer working to Obama's advantage. It could be that his baneful policies have led more Americans to harbor doubts about his very legitimacy."
