Andrew Breitbart guest hosts prominent birther radio program

Remember when Andrew Breitbart last month (hypocritically) castigated birthers like WorldNetDaily CEO Joseph Farah as "self-indulgent," "narcissistic" and wrong for pushing conspiracy theories? Strange, because last night, Breitbart guest-hosted The Savage Nation, a radio program celebrated by birthers like Farah for incessantly claiming that Obama lacks a birth certificate because he was born in Kenya.

Since the 2008 presidential campaign, host Michael Savage has unabashedly claimed that Obama "won't produce his birth certificate" and that "the one that was produced is a forgery." He also believes Kenya is the "true birthplace" of the purportedly madrassa-educated Obama. Savage has also championed Phillip Berg and Orly Taitz, two leaders of the birther movement.

All of Savage's birther promotions haven't gone unnoticed: Joseph Farah and WorldNetDaily regularly praise and promote Savage and his birther activism. Farah and WND like Savage so much that the website partners with him on projects such as his website, books, and columns. Here's Farah:

"It is a great honor and privilege to offer Michael Savage's insights into the news at WND," said Joseph Farah, editor and chief executive officer of the world's largest independent news source on the Internet. "He has an immense following because he is witty, entertaining and fearless. We have partnered with Savage on many projects - his website, two No. 1 New York Times best-sellers and now a column."

Indeed, the URL for Savage's website and radio program is

So to recap, Andrew Breitbart guest hosts one of the leading birther radio programs just a month after castigating birtherism as unproductive? Color us unsurprised.
