California Republicans Dodge Birther Bullet
In the end, it wasn’t even close:
Among the most curious what-if scenarios in Tuesday night’s primary was the possibility that Orly Taitz, widely known as the Birther Queen, might win the Republican primary for secretary of state in California.
It wasn’t even close. Former NFL player Damon Dunn beat Taitz by about 3-to-1. He will face Democratic incumbent Debra Bowen in the fall.
Taitz gained national attention for filing lawsuits alleging President Barack Obama was not born in the U.S. and therefore was ineligible for the highest office in the land.
Taitz fared poorly on a night when GOP women generally performed well at the polls.
On a night when sane GOP women generally performed well at the polls. There, fixed that.
