Well, two years ago another stupid Kansas Birther got washed overboard for flirting with crazy. Birther Tracey Mann lost the endorsement from the Hutchinson News in his U.S. House of Representatives primary, and then went on to lose the election to Tim Huelskamp . Here is an excerpt:
The Hutchinson News’ editorial board struggled some to endorse a candidate in the crowded Republican primary for Kansas’ 1st District U.S. House seat, in which all six candidates sound mostly the same. But in an endorsement published in Sunday’s editions, we settled on Salinan Tracey Mann as the best pick, saying he “at least shows the ability to be reasonable and straightforward with voters.”
We were wrong. And we withdraw that endorsement.
Quite simply, the reason is that it turns out Mann is what is known as a birther. He questions the citizenship of President Barack Obama despite evidence that is irrefutable to most objective, rational people – including a birth certificate released by the Hawaii secretary of state and birth announcements printed in Honolulu’s two major newspapers.
That this even continues as an issue is appalling, which is why we didn’t think to pose the question to Mann or any of the other candidates.
That was two years ago, and Mann has been marooned on a desert isle since then, eating coconuts and talking to a soccer ball for companionship. For some mysterious reason, the famous explorer, Dr. Orly Taitz, Esq. is searching for him!!!
Perhaps she is planning on suing the Hutchinson News for Criminal Complicity and Treason??? Or, does she figure Tracey Mann need some dental work, like Tom Hanks in the Castaway movie??? I don’t see any way that Mann’s loss two years ago fits into her current Kansas litigation. Whatever, my guess is that he prefers to remain there, wherever he is, rather than risk hopping on the Taitz life raft. That darn thing flounders every time it gets near a court room.
