Photo of the Day: Eric Cantor and the “Birther”


    Now, just because Eric Can’tor is posing with crazy “Birther” queen Orly Taitz doesn’t mean he agrees with her regarding the supposed “question” of Barack Obama’s birth in Hawaii. Still, I do find it striking to see, as Salon describes it, “The incoming House majority leader rubs elbows with leading Birther conspiracy theorist Orly Taitz.” And why would Can’tor “friend” Taitz on Facebook, or accept her “friend” request?  That’s truly bizarre…unless, of course, Can’tor either a) is as incompetent on Facebook as he is in general; b) agrees with her; or c) is pandering to the 77% of Republicans who are not sure that Barack Obama was “definitely” born in the United States. Which, by the way, is the correct answer.
