The mainstreaming of conspiracy nuttiness in the GOP

Via TPM:

The longtime Birther agitator and dentist who is now running for the GOP secretary of state nomination in California was a “special guest” of the Republican Jewish Coalition at the group’s “annual summer bash” at the Beverly Hills Hilton Sunday. Also in attendance: GOP heavyweights Karl Rove, former Senator Norm Coleman, and California Senate candidates Chuck DeVore and Carly Fiorina.

The program for the event, touted by Taitz on her website, lists about 15 “Special Guests” including Coleman, Reps. Connie Mack (R-FL), Mary Bono Mack (R-CA), Edward Royce (R-CA), and Taitz. Speakers included Rove, who gave the keynote and Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN).

Karl Rove, who commanded the highest respect from the last President of the United States will be sharing a stage with someone remarkable solely for the fact that she has serially launched baseless lawsuits claiming the American media, government, judiciary, and electoral mechanisms failed to vet a citizenship fraudster for the highest office in the land.

Moreover, Taitz media appearances do not give the impression of a reasonable or even stable person. It can’t even be granted she’s acting in good faith. In an interview with Salon’s Gabriel Winat, she insinuated the government is poisoning vaccines, that Hugo Chavez tampered with American voting procedure, and that Obama embezzled millions from an education initiative and murdered secret homosexual lovers. Taitz has been shunned by even the conspiracy-mad Tea Party movement, after she advised two activists to lie under oath in one of her frivolous Obama citizenship suit.

What does the Republican Jewish Coalition think Taitz has to say that’s worth hearing? That’s worth paying to hear?
