Really.” This is why they will eventually become as irrelevant a political party as the Bull Moose Party: They are so afraid of alienating anyone from their shrinking Big Tent that they will, at the least, not openly disagree with every insane spittle-flecked nugget of craziness that any conservative hobo can yack up. Such as that Obama’s mother planted fake birth announcements in, not one, but TWO Hawaiian newspapers back in 1961, just in case her son wanted to be POTUS one day. Why then she did not give him a more ‘Murican, less furrin-soundin name is not addressed.

They have given her the affectionate nickname of “Crazy Eileen”. Here is a clip of her claiming to be a psychic and ranting about aliens and Armageddon to Art Bell:
How did she know they were aliens? Did she demand to see their birth certificate??
This is your spokesperson, Birthers.
