    I will tune in but hold the view that debate with a birther is a waste of time, the moderator will have his hands full.

  2. Hi RC!!!
    I managed to get a video of tonight’s debate and have tweeted it out so that maybe more people can tune in and listen.

    too bad Scott cancelled, but enjoyed the comments anyway, thanks, I hope Scott didn’t listen cause if he did he probably won’t agree to another debate.

  4. Talk about coincidences. We talked about the Birther Tardis on the show, and you mentioned that the Birthers were probably just a small part of the wider conspiracy theories out there.
    Well, both of those are a part of Arthur Goldwag’s new book, The New Hate: A History of Fear and Loathing on the Populist Right that I have started reading. Goldwag wrote:

    Such a conspiracy would have required either supernatural forethought or time travel, as not only is a birth certificate with a raised seal and signature on file in Hawaii’s office of vital records but contemporaneous announcements of Obama’s birth were printed in two Honolulu newspapers.

    The rest of the book is about all the other craziness associated with the Right.

    • Since this idea of a Birther Tardis was hatched I keep finding many places that it fits. The other day I listened to Carl Swensson retell his adventures delivering the Super Duper Grand Jury Presentments to the Pentagon. In Carl’s own words:

      It was late in April of 09 when I paid a visit to the Pentagon for the purpose of getting the Super Grand Jury Presentments and other information into the hands of the Joint Chiefs. Having stopped a Pentagon Policeman in the parking lot I asked him how I/We (Mack Ellis was with me) could get this information to them. After holding our ground for 45 minutes and being surrounded by all manner security forces we were finally able to get the suits who showed up to take our documents and give us assurance that they would be passed up the chain of command. One of the suits asked me what I expected the Joint Chiefs to do? I reminded him what had just transpired in Honduras, where the Military removed the sitting Pres. for Extra Constitutional activity and said they should take their cue from that small Central American country and do the same. Well, you see how seriously they took us and their Oaths, now don’t you.
      Later in the year I was given word that the Military won’t, on their own, take such an action but they are looking to us, We the people, to initiate an action in which we assert our Constitutional rights. Then and only then would they fall in line.

      That makes for a great story as Carl tells it but unfortunately the ouster of President Manuel Zelaya happened two months after Carl’s visit to the Pentagon on June 28, 2009.

    Hey there RC,

    You said you might post the Arduini Index of Conspiracy Thoery Nut-Jobbery on the site. Should I wait for it, or is it available elsewhere already? It may be the final word in CTNJ diagnostic tools. I especially like his shorthand terminology like “Rube Goldberg’s Razor.”
