Frothing birther Orly Taitz has been given the unvite to speak at today’s Tax Day Tea Party rally at the fairground in Pleasanton, California, though she hasn’t updated her website to reflect the change in plans.
Taitz–who’s been castigated by judges for her goofball nutbag lawsuits claiming the President is not a United States citizen and who was recently fined $20,000 for filing frivolous suits–is running for California Secretary of State. Because, really this state needs that sort of responsible, stable individual.
Dr. Taitz, a dentist cum lawyer, was scheduled to appear with a number of Republican candidates including Senate hopeful Carly Fiorina. John Dennis, who is hoping to garner the GOP nomination to run against Nancy Pelosi, declared he wouldn’t show up if Taitz was on the same stage and said in a statement:
The presence of a discredited publicity seeker on the same platform with patriotic Americans distorts the focus of our movement, distracts from our common message and gives ammunition to those who continue to question our legitimacy.
Really, a crazed dentist claiming the President has a forged birth certificate and 39 social security numbers doesn’t add legitimacy to the GOP, let alone to the Tea Party which the GOP appears to be trying to co-opt? Well, shut my mouth and call me sugar!
Let’s give credit where credit is due for the tempest in the Tea Party, to journalists: After the Los Angeles Times contacted Republican candidates and officals to get their opinions on Taitz’s appearance, phones started ringing and, well things got unpleasant at the Pleasanton Tea Party, prompting Taitz’s unvite. Founder and president of that Tea Party branch, Bridget Melson explained:
It’s not worth it. She’s too controversial. This is not what the Tea Party is about at this point.
Along with Taitz’s continued claims that Obama was born in Kenya, not Hawaii–and her appeal to the United Nations that she was under
increasing legal attack in the United States from groups and individuals opposed to her legal actions challenging the Constitutional qualifications of Barrack Hussein Obama to hold the office of President of the United States–
the zany maniac wrote in her blog that her opponent for the GOP nomination in the Secretary of State race, former NFL player Damon Dunn is not really a Republican.
The only reason he was endorsed so far is because he is an African American, and Republicans want to have an African American to show diversity.
Wow. So like, he’s a ringer? Gee, let’s see: Licensed Baptist minister, member of Saddleback Church, real estate developer and entrepreneur? Sure sounds like a Republican to me….
Though both GOP Senate candidates Fiorina and Chuck DeVore have–through spokespeople– denounced Taitz’s tainted birther conspiracy, that idiotic lamia of an idea run amok is still alive in parts of the GOP. When asked if the issue of the President’s birthplace is resolved, Tom Del Beccaro, vice chair of the California Republican Party, said ot the LA Times:
I certainly don’t have enough information to decide that. I’ve never seen yay or nay either way, so how could I know?
Even if you subtract the Obama stuff out of Orly’s dementia, there’s still a lot of bughouse loony left over in the gal’s overactive imagination. Some of Orly Taitz’s theories and potential platform planks have certainly added to Damon Dunn’s sporty do-gooder appeal for the GOP. Here are some of her constructs:
Taitz has also complained about alleged PayPal attacks and the previous deletion of her Wikipedia entry, and alleges that Google improperly flagged her web page as an attack site and suppressed search results for her name. Because you know, They want to suppress The Truth. Just a heads up, Republicans, oh heck everybody: Orly Taitz is not a “publicity seeker” simply for fame. She actually believes this stuff. And it’s not just folie à une; she’s signed more than a few folks up for a bouncy ride on the crazy train.
If it has never been said that anyone who runs for political office must be kind of nuts, Orly Taitz is a good place to start. The woman is very scary, and me personally, I wouldn’t let her near me with nitrous oxide or a drill–remember the crazed dentist in Little Shop of Horrors?
