“America doesn’t need a birther-in-chief”? Are we really going there?

Of course we knew that the Obama campaign was going to release a statement of faux outrageous outrage after Romney’s birth-certificate joke on Friday morning, and of course all the libs will be up in arms on the news for the rest of the weekend, taking this as another chance to lament and bemoan the lack of moderation in a party now dominated by crazy right-wing extremists — oh, the humanity! But nobody seriously thinks that Romney was “directly enlisting” himself in the birther movement with the now-infamous one-liner, do they? And I didn’t think the Obama campaign would seize on this too much as an actual issue, lest they end up looking silly themselves.
But I was wrong. So wrong.
“Holding out hope Romney had a vision for the middle class? THINK AGAIN.”
Le sigh. I underestimated their desperation for distractions and their commitment to their denigrate-Romney’s-character-at-all-costs modus operandi, no matter how unserious and lame the charge. The beatings will continue until morale improves.
