Barack Obama the Birther
Barack Obama accusing the Chamber of Commerce of laundering foreign money and putting it into the election this year is as crazy as the Birthers demanding to see his birth certificate having convinced themselves Obama is a foreign born manchurian candidate.
I largely agree with Glenn Reynolds on this. Obama is raising the specter of foreign influence in the election so his base views the 2010 election as stolen from them, not that their issues and agenda were rejected.
It is much easier for people to believe in a conspiracy of malice against them than to accept that they and their agenda have been rejected by the American people.
It makes the former no less nutty and the latter no less true.
P.S. — I think we should call these crackpots who think the Chamber is an instrument of foreigners “Chamberpots”.
