Birthers for Santorum

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. -- If this fruit hung any lower it'd be a truffle. Still, though... in a new press release, announcing the backing of "OVER 30 NATIONAL CONSERVATIVE LEADERS," under James Dobson and before Jill Stanek, the discerning eye boggles at this one:

Joseph Farah, Editor and Chief Executive Officer, and WND Books

That's the Joe Farah who's run a three-year campaign/sales pitch of birtherism, selling copies of Jerome Corsi's Where's the Birth Certificate?, buying "Where's the Birth Certificate Billboards," and running new and kooky articles about the fraudelence of Obama's long-form birth certificate.
