TPM calls it Birtherpalooza. The freakshow promised entertainment from 1950’s crooner and birther Pat Boone, warbling oldies from a bygone era.
Event planners said Boone would appear with racist Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio and some of the nation’s other prominent conspiracy theorists. The Sept. 22 event was meant to bring people together from across America who believe President Barack Obama’s birth certificate is fake and rendering him ineligible to be president.
Event organizers planned to use Birtherpalooza to call on the U.S. Congress to take up Arpaio’s yearlong investigation into the documents.
News of the cancellation means Birther queen Orly Taitz is now on suicide watch.
