• Orly Taitz Responds to President's Birth Certificate with Remarkable Aplomb

    "Aplomb" means spewing a barrage of nonsense syllables like a mental patient, right?

    To be fair, though, in this interview, Lawrence O'Donnell was being kind of to her from the start, so maybe she panicked.

    But, to be even more fair, Orly Taitz is a human-shaped joke.

    Are there experts out there capable of deciphering whatever it was she was talking about? I have no idea what she was saying, and I'm pretty sure she didn't either, which is weird because she sounded so cogent and rational and not at all like a person who was desperately grasping at straws to remain relevant earlier in the day, when she explained

    "In those years… when they wrote race, they were writing 'Negro' not 'African'," Taitz says. "In those days nobody wrote African as a race, it just wasn't one of the options. It sounds like it would be written today, in the age of political correctness, and not in 1961 when they wrote white or Asian or 'Negro'."

    I sure hope she didn't rupture her lower intestine while digging up that very insightful piece of birth certificate expertise.
