It's incredibly fitting that every time I see Orly Taitz's name written, the first thing that comes to my mind is skeptical internet speak: "O RLY?" Taitz, who is apparently a dentist (!?) and a lawyer (sayeth HuffPo) is the flustered leader of the "birther" movement, which claims that Barack Obama was born not in Hawaii, but Kenya.
Just in time for Obama's birthday, Taitz lost her shit on MSNBC yesterday in an interview with David Shuster. Highlight: she calls the anchors Nazis (2:16) and then gets upset about people saying mean things about her. But the best part comes at 5:31, when Shuster asks her if she refused an NBC limo because the driver had a Muslim-sounding name. Listen closely for someone cracking up in the studio in the background.
Just look into her hollow Eurotrash eyes and tell me this woman doesn't define crazy. Even Ann Coulter has dismissed the birther movement (can we call it that?) as a bunch of "cranks." When Ann Coulter thinks you're nutbags, that's when we have to ask: Orly Taitz, WTF?
(Bonus! Check out her awesome website.)
