When Brian Williams asked President Barack Obama what he thought of all the people who suspected he was born outside of the United States, Obama had a snappy, headline-generating answer: "I can't spend all of my time with my birth certificate plastered on my forehead."
Laguna Niguel birther/dentist Orly Taitz, of course, had a snappy, if creatively spelled, response to that.
"If Obama releases his original long form BC, I will go all day with it pustered to my forehead
," she wrote on Facebook.
Yeesh, "pustered" sounds painful. But Taitz is used to pain. Monday was her birthday, which meant--as it does for every Web 2.0 user--a barrage of well-wishes on her Facebook wall. Taitz took the time to copy and past each onto her blog.
But then, she found herself locked out of her Facebook account, a victim of the site's new user-verification system that asks account holders to prove their identity by matching the names of their friends to pictures of their friends (this reporter faced this mechanism when he logged into Facebook from abroad recently).
Of course, Taitz has a lot of friends she's never met. So getting back into Facebook has proven hard. What response does this prompt from "Lady Liberty?" Emphasis ours:
FACEBOOK WANTS ME TO ID PICTURES OF ALL OF THESE PEOPLE IN ORDER TO GO TO MY OLD FACEBOOK ACCOUNT. DOES FACEBOOK MAKE OBAMA ID PICTURES OF ALL THE PEOPLE, WHO SIGN UP AR HIS FRIENDS? TALK ABOUT COMPANIE COLLABORATING WITH THE USURPER. PLEASE, SEND ME THE PICTURES OF THESE PEOPLE, SO I CAN GO TO MY OLD ACCOUNT AND ALSO SIGN UP IN THE NEW ACCOUNT. WE REALLY NEED AMERICAN NURENBERG TRIALS FOR ALL OF OBAMA'S COLLABORATORS AND ACCOMPLICES
Spoiler alert for The Social Network
, out this October
: Mark Zuckerberg's actually a jihadi sleeper agent and friend of Van Jones.
And in case anyone needs a reminder, there's an image of Obama's legally valid birth certificate here
