It has taken me a while to respond to the news that Orly Taitz wants to be California's Attorney General.
My original plan was to write immediately, but I got busy putting my eyeballs back into their proper sockets.
If you haven't yet heard of Orly Taitz, not only have you lived a charmed life, but you are evidently spending just the right amount of time on the Internet. I, on the other hand, am well aware of her.
I'm evidently drawn to train wrecks.
Orly initially received media attention in 2008 when she questioned the eligibility of Barack Obama to run for president.
Of course those of you who have heard of Orly, know that she's known as the "Queen of the Birthers," having achieved that distinction by being the Birther Loon Movement's most tenacious litigant. Unfortunately for her, she and the rest of her fringe group have repeatedly failed to convince anyone of their far-flung born-in-Kenya conspiracy theories.
For reasons known only to her, this woman continues to file legally dubious courtroom funny papers in different jurisdictions to no avail.
As a result of these many failures, more than one judge has told her that her filings and arguments make no sense.
One even went so far as to say, "The Court is not willing to go tilting at windmills with her."
Another judge pointed out that she had urged some of her witnesses to lie. He finally said, "It began to become clearer and clearer to me that Orly Taitz had no understanding of the law."
Despite those slapdowns, as well as being fined for her silliness, she wants to be our Attorney General? Really?
If the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results, then it's quite possible that Orly is insane.
I hesitate to use the word "crackpot" so I'll just say she's a nut.
Don't take my word for it, just ask Bill O'Reilly. He called her a "nut" first, back in 2009. Orly wasn't too pleased, so she and ersatz pastor James David Manning, another one who's gone off the rails, organized a protest outside Fox News headquarters in New York City, which drew an estimated 15 to 20 attendees.
Before you vote, do yourself a favor and Google the type of people Orly aligns herself with, then Google her. It's as eye opening as it is dismal.
