Palin on Obama birth certificate: “I think the public rightfully is still making it an issue.”


Speaking to the conservative talker Rusty Humphries today, Sarah Palin left the door open to speculation about President Obama’s birth certificate.

“Would you make the birth certificate an issue if you ran?” she was asked (around 9 minutes into the video above).

“I think the public rightfully is still making it an issue. I don’t have a problem with that. I don’t know if I would have to bother to make it an issue, because I think that members of the electorate still want answers,” she replied.

“Do you think it’s a fair question to be looking at?” Humphries persisted.

“I think it’s a fair question, just like I think past association and past voting records — all of that is fair game,” Palin said.

Granted, it was a “fair question” during the primaries. Then this was made public and authenticated:

McCain and his handlers but this person at the top of their ticket; someone with the paranoia, sloppiness of thought, and intellectual laziness to become a conspiracy theorist if pushed not far along certain lines of questioning. Someone with this contempt for bare and simple facts could have become VP to a 73-year-old. That is the contempt the Republican Party has for American voters.

Of course, Democrats abouse their own voters; their lip-service to gay rights is proof enough of this. And we should be asking Democrats and Republican candidates what they think about such other settled questions as evolution, the 9/11 attacks, the JFK assassination, and the link between fossil-fuel greenhouse gases and global warming. There are popular supersitions about all of them, and holding to those humbugs ought to be a barrier to office.

But nobody asked Sarah; and now we’re all stuck with her.

  1. So there is really no one to vote for anymore, the republicans are content on dis-avowing reality as much as possible and the democrats are too scared to offend anyone even if the people who would be offended have no valid reason to be offended.

  2. Palin has certainly given journalist plenty work. Wonderful how she gets so much free publicity…courtesy of ppl like you. Most lib media use Palin, Fox, Limbaugh, race, deflect from real issues. We should really be concentrating on who is making policy. The three stooges [obama, pelosi, reid] is the real focus.If there were real transparency ‘we the ppl’ wouldnt be hearing ‘its a good bill trust me’ from the likes of Reid…also comparing slavery with healthcare..its absurd..where has the common sense gone?
