Sometimes, it's hard to tell if birther central WorldNetDaily is joking, or if the writers there are truly as untethered from reality as they appear to be.
WND has been one of the driving forces of the “birther” nonsense over the past couple years, with its writers trotting out a series of often-hilarious conspiracy theories about the president (my favorite perhaps being Jerome Corsi claiming Obama stole someone else's Social Security number).
Today, WND published an op-ed by Larry Klayman explaining how “evil Hillary” Clinton will seek to “finally obtain proof positive that President Obama was born in Kenya.” According to Klayman, this would save her the inconvenience of having to kill him. No, really.
Earlier in the column, Klayman forwards the absurd suggestion that the Clintons killed their friend Vince Foster during the 90s [emphasis added]:
But there is one statement I will always remember: “Hillary rules the school,” testified to by Linda Tripp, the former assistant to mysteriously deceased Hillary law-firm partner and Clinton Deputy White House Counsel Vince Foster - giving a new meaning to the French expression “femme fatale.” As also suggested during the testimony, Vince was the “love slave” who “watered Hillary's office plants” and may have died for being honest and not wanting to go along any longer in helping her execute evil deeds. Over 80 material witnesses and others “died” during the Clinton years, and poor Vince was only one of them.
According to Klayman, it may be “passé” for “femme fatale” Hillary to “get rid of people by having them disappear,” hence why she will pursue the birther conspiracy:
In 2011, it may be passé for Hillary to get rid of people by having them disappear. But with Obama there is an easier way that I suspect may, in this age of “civility,” be the femme fatale's new modus operandi. I have come to conclude, through sources close to Hillary, that she herself may again be working on the so-called “birther” issue, which she first raised during her 2008 presidential campaign. For if Hillary can finally obtain proof positive that President Obama was born in Kenya, and not in Hawaii as he claims, then she will not have to send him on a day trip to Fort Marcy Park to retire him as president. What could be cleaner?
In fact, according to Klayman, the only reason “mullah in chief” Obama didn't pick Clinton as VP was because he “obviously did not want to encourage his own 'unfortunate accident.'”
