National Review on Arpaio's Birth-Certificate Baloney: "As Sheriff Joe Settles Comfortably Into That Political Mental Ward..."

Posted By on Thu, Mar 8, 2012 at 11:00 AM

The editors at the conservative National Review don't think much of Sheriff Joe's "investigation" into Obama's birth certificate:


Republicans who have chosen to associate with the birthers have done their party and their country a disservice. And as Sheriff Arpaio settles comfortably into that political mental ward, the same must be said of those Republicans who choose to associate themselves with him more broadly. Those who cannot distinguish between the birthers’ flim-flam and the critical questions that face our nation in 2012 will not win and do not deserve to.

Meanwhile, Nick R. Martin at Talking Points Memo reports that one of Sheriff Joe's "investigators" is trying make a buck by peddling this nonsense:


Michael Zullo, the investigator who took center stage at Arpaio’s news conference last week, has already co-authored an e-book about his investigation and is selling it for $9.99 on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

The book gives Zullo a financial motive to continue stoking the flames of a conspiracy theory that has been debunked numerous times by an array of independent investigations.
