    This is a private poll. Your vote will not be shown.

    Which Birther hero has more wacko potential?

    Candidate 1. Phillip Berg, Esq.


    Back in 2005, a Federal Judge had imposed $10,000 in sanctions and ordered him to complete a course in ethical training, claiming that Berg committed a "laundry list of unethical actions."

    The judge also wrote, "This court has grown weary of Mr. Berg's continuous and brazen disrespect toward this court and his own clients. Mr. Berg's actions ... are an enormous waste of judicial time and resources that this court cannot, in good conscience, allow to go unpunished."

    Berg claimed that he had overwhelming evidence that, "Bush and his cronies made 9/11 happen or let it happen. And, if they let it happen, then they made it happen. Either way, they are responsible; and more important, they have completely and unequivocally covered-it-up!"

    Candidate 2. "Dr." Orly Taitz, "Esq."


    This "attorny" has managed to leverage the far-right's disdain for President Obama into a number of conspiracy theories, a few scurrilous lawsuits, and her fifteen minutes of fame.

    Ironically, "Dr." Taitz may be be the only ineligible player in the game. Although Taitz is a member of the California Bar, she's not listed as a member of the American Bar Association. Nor is her "law school", William Howard Taft University, accredited by the ABA. Since Taft is a distance-learning school, Taitz's degree entitles her, at most, to practice in California.

    Rules of attorney discipline forbid the practice of law without a license (without passing the bar exam after graduating from an ABA-accredited school). Her correspondence degree is only useful in California. Any action in which she appeared as counsel of record outside the state would constitute practicing law without a license.

    To be fair, I've never seen Philip Berg on video, but if you've seen the video of Oily Tits on MSNBC, it's hard to believe that anyone could be as nutty as she. She is seriously paranoiac, and goes to pieces when challenged.

    That's too hard to answer, rex2000.
    The only thing I do know is that we shall never let the two meet to breed.

    Oral Titz makes Phlippin' McBergs look and sound like a man with half a mind, simply because Titz is completely insane. I hope the media puts her on TV EVERY DAY. lulz

    I agree she's nutter, but that video is a perfect example of TV news hosts asking a question and not letting the guest respond. They interrupt her, talk over her and ridicule her. It would be much more effective if they had just let her freak flag fly.

    Often I see "interviews" where the host spends more time formulating the question than they give the guest to respond. Or part way through the answer, they load in a another question. Hannity does it all the time.

    vince: Not to defend anyone, but it's clear that Orly Taitz was not answering the questions she was given. She just wanted to tell her story and explain why she believes Obama was born in Kenya and not Hawaii. Grant it, I don't care for these bullying tactics by news hosts. But Orly had a complete meltdown on TV and that doesn't help her cause at all. Never mind that the piece of evidence she tried to bring to the table has already been proven to be a fake.

    Regardless, it's a devastating, 1-2 combination punch to the Birther debate. They made all this noise over the last few weeks only to lead up to this. She even made Palin look intelligent, and that takes hard work.

    That is indeed remarkable. Just when you thought it could not get any weirder... I agree with Vince, give her a 5 minute soliloquy, and just sit back. At that point, no counter point would be required.

    Exactly. Air it LIVE on all the networks. Hell, let's be nice and give her 10, and make sure you have someone translating it for the deaf. It would be great to watch her plead the case to the public, uninterrupted, only to have it be greeted by hysterical laughter.

    Is Simon Cowell & Paula Abdul available for post game commentary? :biggrin1:

    Vince, the anchors run the show. If the guest does not answer their questions, they are not going to allow the guest to run a infomerical for their cause. The first question was simple; Orly, please explain the annoucements in the newspaper. Orly then went into a monologue that didn't come close to resembling the answer to the question.

    People don't get interrupted who make an attempt to answer questions. Her purpose was not to answer questions, but leverage the interview and try to make a commerical out of it. They chewed her up and spit her out. They rattled her. They exposed her and the birthers. Now, everyday folk will start to view birthers in the same light. Mission accomplished, MSNBC.
