When even Glenn Beck turns on the "Birthers", should they get a clue? (+ HotAir <3 MMFA)
Even Glenn Beck has turned on the "Birthers", saying that he doesn't believe Obama was born in Kenya, that if it came out that he was born there it would result in "civil war", and that "there are other things that you should concentrate on... Who cares about the birth certificate thing? ...What do you say we pay attention to he's appointing Communists..." (The audio is at mediamatters.org/mmtv/200908040011)
Why Beck and those like him are idiots was already discussed here; if you haven't already seen that please go take a look. If Glenn Beck were smart, he could say bad things about the "Birthers" all day long, profess to believe that Obama has told the complete truth about his background all day long, and at the same time use this issue to discredit the mainstream media.
Instead, Glenn Beck is helping the mainstream media smear a good portion of the GOP base and is in effect rewarding the MSM for their deceptive coverage of this issue. If Beck were smart, he could force the MSM to offer better coverage of a wide range of topics, including those he (apparently) cares about. Instead, he's helping the MSM continuing their deceptive coverage of a wide range of topics. The fact that Beck isn't smart enough to turn this to his advantage shouldn't be much of a surprise, considering that he thought that sending tea bags to Congress would be effective.
Maybe if I FAXed the link above to HotAir or Beck in a nice crayon font they might be able to understand this.
