I believe in the free speech that liberals used to believe in, the economic freedom that conservatives used to believe in, and the personal freedom that America used to believe in.

Orly Taitz Warming Up For Round Two

Apparently, we’ll have Orly Taitz to kick around for quite some time to come:

There are congressional races every 2 years, Diane Feinstein will be due for re-election in 2 years. She will be close to 80 years old then. I read about her. She used to be an attorney, married to a surgeon. I am an attorney and I am also a dental surgeon. She is a an attractive, knowledgeable woman, but I can hold my own on every issue and will not lose a debate. As a matter of fact I never lost a debate on the issue of eligibility. Media is simply afraid to debate me on this issue or any other issue for that matter simply because they know that they will lose. They know that I have the facts, the law and the logic on my side and they will lose. No vicious reporter or corrupt judge can take it away from me. I am not saying that I will run, but I am saying that it is a possibility. For now I am concentrating on legal challenges.

Dave Weigel seems to think that the Taitz story is over:

As far as I’m concerned, the Taitz trainwreck ended on Tuesday when she rode a wave of publicity to 26% in California’s GOP primary for Secretary of State. Only 21 people donated to her campaign, despite her ability to draw massive media attention for such a low-profile race. Today, she’s talking about voter fraud (of course) and mulling a challenge to Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Ca.). Who cares? When she made the move from freaky celebrity to politics she got rock-solid proof of her irrelevance.

Yes, it’s slightly disturbing that even 26% of a party’s electorate would vote for Taitz. And it will continue to be news if elected Republicans jump on board with the birther quest, whether led by her or by someone else. It would have been news if 51% of Republicans made her their nominee — it will be news if Republicans nominate someone with these views in another state.


But Taitz herself is no longer a story. I see that she cited my posts about her — which were pretty much straightforward accounts of the fundraising and vote totals of her doomed campaign — as proof that the media still cares about her. Well, we don’t care about her. Let’s stop indulging what is obviously a pathetic campaign for attention and celebrity.

Personally, I think we’ll see more from Taitz, perhaps even more insane than what we’ve seen so far, and that she will be in the news again.

Besides, I’m gonna stick around at least for the inevitable disbarment proceedings.
