That Rascally Orly Taitz
I would like to believe that Dick Cheney is a syphilitic pedophile whose primary recreational activity is torturing puppies. However, since beliefs are one’s internal representations of the way the world actually is, I am forced to abandon those conjectures, settling instead for the belief that Cheney is a miserable cunt whose ethics fall just short of Nixon’s, Blagojevich’s or Madoff’s.
That, I am afraid, is the price of admission for being a human. Much as we would like the world to take its cues from our imaginations, that’s just not how it works. A well-functioning mind must be a slave to reality.
All of which brings me to our old friend Orly Taitz. She is the dreadful woman who has become the heavily-painted face of the “Birthers”. You know, those dicks who insist that Barack Obama is a Kenyan Muslim, hellbent on subverting the Constitution by usurping the presidency.
Never one to let reality get in the way of her zealotry, Taitz has been clogging our federal courts like that slimy hair that you never want to pick out of the shower drain. No matter that Obama’s birth certificate has been available for over a year, and the local Hawaiian newspapers have provided their contemporaneous announcements of his birth. Never mind that the State of Hawai’i’s health department has authenticated his birth certificate on two separate occasions.
At this point, she’s pot committed, and like a shitty poker player on tilt, she’s all in. Fortunately for those of us living in reality, no one who has given the issue more than a moment’s clear thought gives any credence at all to Taitz or her ilk, and today proved to be a pretty big upset for that crazy piece of shit.
In a 14-page opinion, Bush-appointed federal district judge Clay Land tossed Taitz’s nonsense out of court. It’s about as stern an opinion as a judge can issue, and it’s right on the money. It notes that neither Congress nor any of Obama’s primary or general election opponents found any evidence that he’s not American by birth. It deemed the action “frivolous” and threatened to sanction her should she bring similar suits before him in the future.
Will any of this logic stop Taitz’s raving? Absolutely not. Rather, she has compared her “oppression” to Nelson Mandela’s, and has insisted that Judge Land deserves to be tried for treason. She’s a fucking lunatic, doing what lunatics do best. In effect, she has given herself permission to insist that Cheney is a syphilitic pedophile; her work, as Hamlet would say, consists of “words, words, words.” So let’s be glad that we live in a nation whose Constitution allows this sewage to flow unfettered, and equally glad that (with the exception of 33% of New Jersey’s Republicans) the marketplace of ideas won’t buy what she’s selling.
In awed recognition of her inability to take her lumps and shut the fuck up, and especially for her tenacious trumpeting of a fake cause, Is It Luck will proudly confer upon Ms. Taitz four snarling chihuahuas, pending her production of a valid certification that she was born on planet Earth.
