Listen very carefully, because I’m only going to say this once. I think MSNBC was a little too rough on Orly Taitz in this interview:
MSNBC’s tactic in this interview appears to have been to interrupt Taitz, and throw enough embarrassing facts at her, to force her to totally and completely lose it. Call it the “A Few Good Men” stratagem. In this case it seems to have worked, but is either wholly unnecessary or counterproductive to MSNBC’s goals. It’s a given that, in any interview, Taitz will make herself look like a fool. Unfortunately, her audience doesn’t care about it. Looking at this video, the rabid hordes of birthers will see Taitz courageously standing up to a media bent on “censorship,” not a correspondence school “lawyer” who can’t seem to use definite articles in her sentences. The best way to make her look as foolish as she is, without giving her supporters something to rally behind, is to confront her on the substance. The Kenyan “certificate” is a fake. The proof of Obama’s Hawaiian birth is irrefutable. And no lawyer worth a dime buys into her “no dual citizenship” theory. MSNBC should’ve given her a chance to speak, before destroying the merits of her arguments. After all, it’s not hard to do.
