51. I agree that she needs to be called out, but I wish we'd be more sensitive to the mentally ill
I agree this whole birther thing has been pretty destructive. However, she appears* to be suffering from some kind of paranoid disorder. While her views are harmful, I wish we could call her out without being so mean about it. Mentally ill people don't ask to be mentally ill. I wonder if anyone has ever tried to convince her to get help.

*Disclaimer - I am not a psychologist, I am not familiar with her medical or mental health history, and this is just my personal opinion based on what I consider to be her very paranoid, bizarre conspiracy theories.
