Bennett has reason to believe birth certificates can be faked - his son's says he was born human, and anyone who has followed the son's "antics" shoving sticks up the rectums of young boys knows that isn't true. Just ask his victims!
The reason the birthers "have power" is because the AZGOP lets them. The blue-haired hate brigade aren't going to vote for anyone other than a (R), so the need to pander them is false. The AZGOP chooses to pander because they want to. Shane Wikfors, the AZGOP communication director, lacks the imagination to come up with sincere messaging, so he simply adopts whatever he hears as he slithers thought he political gutters in which he resides.
Want slime - join the AZGOP.
Want conservatives - join the movement to throw out the right-wing radicals, and it starts with S.F.B Shane.
