If anyone ever wonders what the difference between the crazies of the left and the crazies on the right is, this story should suffice for one of the exhibits.
The birther wars continue. Orly Taitz, birther queen of California, personally filed a complaint in New Hampshire on Saturday that challenged President Obama�s U.S. citizenship and argued for his removal from the state�s ballot, reports the Concord Monitor.
New Hampshire�s electoral governing body, the Ballot Law Commission, turned down the complaint in a public hearing via 5-0 vote. It got pretty ugly shortly thereafter.
�Traitors!� screamed the members of the attending public. �Treason!�
�You have no decency! You have no honesty! You�re committing treason!�
The group of birthers, which included several New Hampshire state representatives, erupted after the decision, shouting at the commission attorneys as they tried to exit the hearing room. Another state representative apparently suggested committee members should cover their face with a mask if they ever found themselves in his district.
Now admittedly, the article doesn�t mention which party those state representatives were members of, but given Taitz goes on to accuse all of the commission members of being Democrats (wrongly as it turns out), I think it�s safe bet to say the birther contingent was pure Republican.
And that is the basic difference these days. The crazies on the left are actually a fringe that nobody takes too seriously. (Hell, some would argue they don�t even take the mainstream left too seriously anymore these days, even if they shoudl.)
The right, on the other hand, has been electing their crazies to represent them, which is why the Republican primary resembles a clown show, and is scary given they actually control one branch of Congress and may yet win the other two again.
