Orly Taitz And Fellow Birthers Go After Florida's Marco Rubio and Succeed (But Not How They'd Hoped)
But who? It had to be someone aspiring to the presidency or vice-presidency ... foreign-ish ... accent would be a plus ... medium complexion ... last name ends in a vowel....
Hey, what about that Marco Rubio character, the Republican senator from Florida? Did I say from Florida? That's what he wants you to think!
According to the St. Petersburg Times, birther
Of course, in the xenophobic whackadoodle realm of Birtherstan, the term natural-born is up for debate. Our own Orly told the St. Pete Times, "We need the court to finally adjudicate this issue, who is a natural-born citizen." Her position is, since his parents weren't citizens, Rubio is ineligible for the presidency.
Oops. The Washington Post has picked up the story as well, and Rubio has lamely fallen back on an "oral history of my family" excuse. As Miller puts it, "Yeah, right. Any self-respecting cubano sure as hell knows when his or her family arrived in the United States. Heck, most can tell you the exact day."
All of this is incredibly damaging to the future political prospects of this far-right, Tea Party darling and "pro-life warrior."
So, uh ... go Orly? And have fun at the birther summit.
