  • Anderson Cooper Talks Birtherism with Block of Wood Shaped Like Texas State Rep. Leo Berman

    Have you ever had a 12 minute conversation with a cherry wood double-door country-style armoire, in which you calmly dissect and defuse conspiracy theories for why the President of the United States is actually a foreign-born socialist plant, and, no matter what you say, the armoire is all like, "Why don't you put some clothes inside me? Look, I have a drawer over here for some handkerchiefs." Very frustrating!

    Anyway, this conversation between Anderson Cooper and Texas State Rep. Leo Berman feels a lot like that…

  • Quote of the Day: The Birther Bill

    Leo Berman — the Texas state representative who previously promised to get even with The Almighty for having smitten our fair nation with President Obama — explains the logic behind the new bill he introduced in Austin yesterday which would require all U.S. presidential candidates to present the Texas Secretary of State with a birth certificate before being allowed on state ballots…

    "This bill is necessary because we have a president whom the American people don't know whether he was born in Kenya or some other place. If you are running for president or vice president, you've got to show here in Texas that you were born in the United States and the birth certificate is your proof."

    One day, we'll all think back on this time in our country's history, and we'll think to ourselves, "Thank god we're all dead."

  • Rep. Leo Berman Calls Obama "God's Punishment on Us," Swears to Get Even with God

    While speaking at a Glenn Beck "Taking Back America" event in Texas over the weekend, Rep. Leo Berman (R-TX) made the unorthodox claim that Barack Obama's current position as President of the United States is a matter of divine providence before informing the crowd that he and his fellow party members would stand together defy the very will of The Almighty.

    I mean, that is what he's saying here, right?

    "I believe that Barack Obama is God's punishment on us today, but in 2012, we are going to make Obama a one-term president."

    Is there some other way can that that be interpreted? I don't think so.

    I, myself, am not a religious person, but I am offended by Rep. Berman's blasphemous statement. If God does exist and He saw fit to place Barack Obama in the White House for whatever reason he may have — I'm told He works in mysterious ways, like Bono — I don't think it's right to go before a crowd full of Christians and promise to undo His work.

    Really! Why does Leo Berman hate America/God so much?
