What’s startling about Birtherism is how accepted and acceptable it is in the conservative movement. Sometimes the only way to fight the extreme is to mirror it, and ask what it would look like if Mitt Romney were treated with the same sort of bigoted rumors circulated against Barack Obama.
MAHER: Mitt Romney comes from a Mormon background. I don’t know how many wives he has. I’m not saying I believe in that. I’m just saying that he was born on a Mormon compound. I’m not a Wifer, but for some reason he’s never shown his original marriage certificate.
