Run, Orly, run!

Birther-in-Chief Orly Taitz says she won't rule out a run for elected office

Orly Taitz has been a busy woman lately. The de facto leader of the Birthers has been conducting something of a media tour in Israel, has suggested that Associated Press executives are committing treason by not running her repeatedly debunked claims about President Obama's eligibility for his office and has been looking around for foreign ambassadors willing to bring a case challenging Obama to the Supreme Court.

Still, Taitz told the Israeli newspaper Haaretz, she might have time for one other thing: "You know I never ran for office, but I would not exclude this as a possibility," she said. She did, of course, note that because she is not a natural-born citizen of the U.S., she could not be president.
