So Joe had his dog and pony birther show yesterday.
And left us with more questions than answers.
Here are four off the top of my head:
1. What qualifies his “posse” as document forensic experts? Who, besides, the guy who showed up yesterday, retired New Jersey detective Mike Zullo, makes up this posse? Why do they have the necessary credibility for us to believe their conclusions?
2. Did the posse obtain a legitimate birth certificate from that time and work it through the same processes they did with the alleged fraudulent Obama certificate? If you did, what were the results? If you didn’t, why didn’t you?
3. Zullo said yesterday that the posse believes they know who created the allegedly fraudulent certificate, telling the assembled group that the posse “has identified a person of interest.”
Well, who is that person? Nothing from the posse on this.
4. Zullo also dismissed a question about the birth announcement in the Honolulu paper, saying “anyone” could’ve put that in the paper. The paper says, “Not so.” That back then, only the birth hospital provided those announcements. So what proof does the posse have that “anyone” could’ve put that announcement in the paper?
Joe came off like an idiot. The birthers in the county will cheer him; the rest will wonder if at 79 Joe’s a little too old to keep his office.
Which means? Here comes a “crime suppression” sweep!
