Even though Donald Trump has wholeheartedly embraced the wall-to-wall media coverage that's come with his promotion of the widely discredited "birther" issue, Sarah Palin argued Tuesday that the press is treating him "unfairly" by focusing mostly on his doubts about President Barack Obama's birthplace.

Palin, who's been trading kind words with Trump in recent days, said on Fox News that the real estate mogul isn't pushing the birther issue and would talk about more substantial issues — if only the press would let him. Reporters, she said, are "hammering [Trump] about the one issue that he has brought up and not been shy about — that's the birth certificate. ... He's answering reporters' questions about his view on the birth certificate. And reporters turn that around and say that's all he's got.

"That's not the case," she added. "Trump is running on the issue, bottom line, that President Obama is in so far over his head."
i rest my case.

there is an *official* book coming out on Obama's true birth location

they say even Obama will learn the truth, finally.


I only believe I was born in Los Angeles, because I have been told that.
(I have no personal recollection of my actual birth or what country it occurred in.)

all this stuff does is further discredit the far right to the masses, including the Tea Party. Obama is likely very happy to have his birth certificate a topic of discussion because it makes his opponents look unserious to the independents. if he wins the independent vote, he wins reelection in a landslide.

It indeed does make them look not-so-serious. It makes them look like buffoons, caring about something like that so much.

Care about how he runs the country for god sakes.

To quote my Senator, the Honorable Al Franken,

"Republicans run on the argument that government doesn't work, and then get elected and prove it."

Could easily all be a stunt, but you have to wonder. He's polling pretty well (even though the numbers are a bit of a fraud, would he see them that way?), he's got an ego that would far outsize any rational thought, and there'd be no-one anywhere near him daring to say that it can't be done. You can bet that he seriously thinks he'd be a fucking amazing President, and that all he probably hears from anyone directly is that he'd be a fucking amazing President.

I mean, the assumption is that as a 'campaign' this is so tacky and obviously about pure headline grabbing that it must be him just doing it for Trump publicity. But then... it would also make sense that, well, 'Tacky' is all he sells, and headline-grabbing is how he sells it. There's no reason why, if he were serious, this would be any different. Serious or not, it would look the same. And for him, if he is serious, his belief in this being a seriously great approach is probably being reinforced by all the attention (positive or negative - wouldn't matter) and the relatively high polling.

But I'm not really sure of how self aware he is?

you know he's just waiting for election night in November, 2012, when he gives his speech and he says: "President Obama: you're fired!"

totally killer publicity for the new season of the Apprentice!
