Motherfucker this ain’ t back in the day

Teh crazy surrounding Obama is just as crazy as teh crazy surrounding Clinton was. But BirthCertificateGate and BenghaziGate and BoGate aren’t legitimate problems for Obama the way the various ClintonGates were. And I don’t just mean the ones involving extramarital affairs. The Clinton memo on the ol’ freakshow conveyor belt:

The communication stream worked as follows, according to the memo:

First, a well-funded right-wing think tank would underwrite conservative newsletters and newspapers such as The American Spectator or the Western Journalism Center. Next, the stories would be “reprinted on the internet” where they “bounced all over the world.” The stories would then reach the right-of-center mainstream media, including The New York Post, The Wall Street Journal and The Washington Times, through one of two ways: either directly from the internet or via a “blow-back strategy” through the British tabloids, which would publish the story and thus give American right-of-center media reason to publish as well.

Finally, Congress would pick up the story line and say it should be investigated, which would give the story the legitimacy it needed to be covered by the remainder of the American mainstream press.

This is funny now:

But back in the day, William Safire might have had several columns on the topic.

Now, with this kind of crazy, I wish a motherfucker would.
