Did the world really need a Washington Post profile of almost 2500 words on the "charming but ferocious tenacity" of crazed birther activist Orly Taitz? It is, as the Washington Independent's David Weigel points out, "possibly the least critical thing ever written about this severely disturbed person who’s encouraging the military to rebel against the elected president of the United States." At several points in the latter half of the article, Post Style writer Liza Mundy obliquely raises concerns about the lack of factual support for Taitz's theories, their appeal to extremist groups, and the racial dimensions to her rhetoric, but all are mildly worded and framed in "he said," "she said" style. (Meanwhile, Weigel notes that Mundy fails to accurately describe Taitz's most absurd claim about why Obama is supposedly ineligible for the presidency.) At this point, the only reason to cover Taitz is to debunk some new claim she's made that's received mainstream attention. She should otherwise be ignored.
