I wish I could say I'm surprised by Sarah Palin going birther. But...
I also I wish I could say that this was political suicide, but in terms of her (real) chances of getting the GOP nomination it may be a net neutral, and (granting that she pushes the boundaries of this truth) essentially anyone who could get a major party nomination could win under the right circumstances. Terrifying stuff.
...see also Weigel, Marcotte, and Terkel. For those readers who have never encountered political discourse before, "questions are being rightfully asked" is a classic consipracy-theorist forumulation, and certainly no 9/11 troofer would get a pass on similar language.
