Orly Taitz and Tropical Storm Grace

Oct 05 2009 Published by under Humor

Earlier today, Birther Leader Orly Taitz took time away from her busy schedule to explain the connection between Barack Obama's birthplace and Tropical Storm Grace to this reporter:

"If you look, you will see that the storm is just like Obama. It has come from Africa and turned everything left. But it's not a legitimate storm, so it will not do anything significant."

When informed that the storm had actually turned to its right, Taitz replied:

"Look, if you don't know left from right there's really no point talking to you because you will never see what is so totally apparent - the storm that came from Africa will not harm the United States because the impostor Obama is here so the storm is refusing to risk damaging his reputation. If Obama was really a natural born American, the storm would have no problems damaging us. It just goes to show....."

(Yes, that was an attempt at satire. Yes, it was probably weak. Give me a break, it's 5am.)

    "an attempt at satire"
    And there we have the nub of the problem, Mike. You picked a target that cannot be satirized. The behavior of Orly Taitz makes it entirely believable that she would earnestly screw up a meteorological metaphor. Wouldn't even break into a sweat. The irrationality is strong in this one. It's beyond mocking by parody. It is parody already.

    I thought it was nicely done.
    You nailed Taitz's delivery perfectly and it's possible that she might have actually said that.

  • TWalker says:

    I agree. Very nicely done; you could easily "pass" if you wanted to. 😛

  • Colonel Ingus says:

    Just produce the birth certificate! Any and all presidents belong to history. How are we to know about this pres. when there are zero, zilch, nada records about him? That seems fair right? Where will the Pres' library be and what will it contain if there are no records of anything pertaining to his past? Keep going Orly! Even the truth is ridiculed from time to time.

  • Zeno says:

    Colonel Ingus is being deliberately obtuse. "Just" produce the birth certificate? Sorry. It won't work. The Colonel and others of his ilk wouldn't accept it. Any piece of paper will be denounced as a fake. These people don't want evidence. They want an issue. [Link]

    I still maintain she is a troll of legendary success and proportions.
    For starters I'm still having difficulty getting past her name - Orly?

    The birthers, the tea baggers, the screamers, and the deathers continued extreme minority presence will become tiresome to mainstream America, if it has not already done so. To all the birthers in La, La Land, it is on you to prove to all of us that your assertion is true, if there are people who were there and support your position then show us the video (everyone has a price), either put up or frankly shut-up. I heard Orly Taitz, is selling a tape (I think it’s called “Money, Lies and Video tape”). She is from Orange County, CA, now I know what the mean when they say “behind the Orange Curtain”, when they talk about Orange County, the captial of Conspiracy Theories. You know Obama has a passport, he travel abroad before he was a Senator, but I guess they were in on it. In my opinion the Republican Party has been taken over the most extreme religious right (people who love to push their beliefs on others while trying to take away the rights of those they just hate) and that’s who they need to extract from their party if they real want to win. Good Luck, because as they said in WACO, “We Ain’t Coming Out”. I heard that she now wants to investigate the “Republican 2009 Summer of Love” list: Assemblyman, Michael D. Duvall (CA), Senator John Ensign (NV), Senator Paul Stanley (TN), Governor Mark Sanford (SC), Board of Ed Chair, and Kristin Maguire AKA Bridget Keeney (SC).

    (Sung to the tune of "The Battle Hymn of the Republic")
    Mine eyes have not yet seen
    Obama's birth certificate.
    It is hidden in a vault
    Where only God's Right Hand can get.
    Obama's C. O. L. B. is a
    Lousy counterfeit.
    It's truth we're marching for!!!!
    Orly! Orly! Hallelujah!!!
    Orly! Orly! Hallelujah!!!
    Orly! Orly! Hallelujah!!!
    It's truth we're marching for!!!!
    We shall fight the Masked Usurper
    On the beaches, in the hills.
    We shall fight this Painted Joker
    On the seas and in the fields.
    We shall fight to Hell and back
    And into court and with appeals.
    It's truth we're marching for!
    Orly! Orly! Hallelujah!!!
    Orly! Orly! Hallelujah!!!
    Orly! Orly! Hallelujah!!!
    It's truth we're marching for!!!!
