It takes a special sort of person that, when confronted with evidence, can say with a straight face, “I don’t believe it” and continue with their original presumption of a certain point of view.
With that, our favorite clownshoe in the OC blogsphere, Art Pedroza, is starting to look a lot like (in words and deed if not in fashion)Â birther Orly Taitz.
An amazing coincidence?Â See for yourself:
Art: Is confronted by a statement from Lorri Galloway herself, in a Liberal OC exclusive, that she had nothing to do with recruiting Sue Perez to run against Senator Lou Correa, and Art replies in a comment here, “I don’t believe her…”
Orly: Is confronted with a certified copy of President Barack Obama’s birth certificate and refuses to believe it’s legitimate preferring to believe a Kenyan Birth Certificate issued two years before Kenya was even a nation; doesn’t believe Honolulu newspaper birth announcements either.
Art: Has two jobs that are widely different — the head of his own safety consulting firm and publisher of a “opinion” blog. Both enterprises operate out of Art’s house and can be done in his pajamas with the fuzzy slippers.
Orly: Is a lawyer and a dentist.Â Must wear the fuzzy slippers to court while buzzing on laughing gas.
Art: Has friends of questionable character and integrity, like Tony Bushala, Paul Lucas, Terry CrowleyÂ and Red Vixen/Jill Puich (or is it Jill Lynn now..who still doesn’t show up on any fundraising lists for Dem candidates she says she supports).
Orly: Has friends like Alan Keyes who ran on a pro-family values campaign only to denounce his openly lesbian daughter and Wiley Drake, a man of God, who prays for the death of the president. And don’t forget Congressman John Campbell (R-Orly Taitz) who is the co-sponsor of the Birther Bill in Congress and the recipient of $500 from Taitz in 2005.
Art: Has turned against friends and friends have turned against him.
Orly: Even Wiley Drake isn’t part of her lawsuit anymore.
Orly: Sounds like the missing Gabor sister
Art: Is the missing Garbor sister.
Orly: Gets national media coverage and is laughed at nationally.
Art: Gets little local media coverage and is laughed at locally and often.
Orly: Never let the facts get in the way of a good story.
