It's gone beyond parody.
So, demanding that Obama prove that he is a "natural born" American based on hearsay is racist and irrational, even though the hearsay appears might have started because Obama may have been claiming that he was born in Kenya. We know this because Harry Reid told us in 2009 that:
“Let's be clear. It's a phony issue and does not deserve even a minute of our attention on the floor of the United States Senate," Reid announced today, giving the issue just that minute. "It's absurd, irresponsible, baseless and the false claims of long ago have been refuted.”
But Harry Reid can demand that Romney prove that he paid taxes because Reid claims to have hearsay reports that Romney paid no taxes for ten years.
With Nancy Pelosi characterizing Jews as being principally motivated by concern for their ducats and Harry Reid playing liberal fizbin, you havt to think that there might be something to Darwin's Theory of Evolution by Natural Selection. When you think of the insensitive things said by ranking Democrats such as Pelosi, Biden and Reid, you can't help but conclude that the whole party would be helped by culling out the dumbest ones.
