Palin: Birthers are just "curious"

Sarah Palin gave the birther movement more than the benefit of the doubt on Fox News last night.

"I think the media is loving this, because they want to make to make birthers, as they call people who are just curious about the president of the United States and his background and his associations and his consistency with what he says today versus what he said in both the memoirs that he wrote or Bill Ayers or whomever wrote.

The media is loving the fact that some curious Americans are actually asking the questions, and they're trying to make those curious Americans sound kind of crazy.

So the media is loving this issue, and they're perpetuating the issue and trying to make it sound really worse than it is."

Note that she designated birthers with the quite benign and somewhat whimsical word, "curious", three times.
