“Yuge!”: Despite the Patented Clinton Denials the 2008 Obama “Birther” River Runs Deep

Basically offering title links with some peppering of opinion on these Saturday posts as I am a bit busy this weekend…

Sid vicious:

Clinton campaign, Blumenthal fight back against accusations of spreading ‘birth rumor’ … Yeah, well, he/she also “denies” Sid’s active/frequent/strong ‘adviser’ position while she was S-of-S, even when the emails prove different.

MSNBC, Politico, Bloomberg, CNN, McClatchy and More Confirm: Hillary Clinton’s 2008 Campaign Spread ‘Birtherism’ About Barack Obama

Ed Driscoll @ Instapundit:

FORMER McCLATCHY DC BUREAU CHIEF: CLINTON SURROGATE SID BLUMENTHAL PITCHED ME ‘BIRTHER’ STORY IN 2008.

More: Clinton aides claim Obama photo wasn’t intended as a smear, the London Guardian reported in February of 2008. “Barack Obama’s campaign team today accused Hillary Clinton’s beleaguered staff of mounting a desperate dirty tricks operation by circulating a picture of him in African dress, feeding into false claims on US websites that he is a Muslim.”

As Ace writes today, “Well that guy who said point-blank that Sid Blumenthal pitched the Obama Birtherism conspiracy to him in 2008 is more than just an investigative gadfly — he’s formerly with McClatchy, so he has credentials, and you understand the importance of credentialism in the media.”

UPDATE: “Blumenthal pushed McClatchy so hard on birther story that they sent a reporter to Kenya.”
