Fair Game?

Sarah Palin has jumped on the Obama “birth heritage” bandwagon by declaring that the legitimacy of the American president’s birth certificate is a “rightful” issue and “fair game”.

“Sarah Palin declared on Thursday that the legitimacy of President Obama’s birth certificate is ‘rightfully’ an issue with the American public, and that it is ‘fair game’ for politicians to question Obama’s citizenship. The comments came during an interview with conservative radio host Rusty Humphries, who asked Palin whether she planned to “make the birth certificate an issue” if she runs for president in 2012. ‘I think the public rightfully is still making it an issue,’ Palin said. ‘I don’t have a problem with that. I don’t know if I would have to bother to make it an issue, because I think that members of the electorate still want answers.’ Humphries — who began the interview with a rendition of the song ‘Sarah, Queen Of The Wild Frontier’ — followed up: ‘Do you think it’s a fair question to be looking at?’ ‘I think it’s a fair question just like I think past associations and past voting records. All of that is fair game,’ Palin responded.”
