and in particular kudos to Erick Erickson for taking a firm (albeit small) stand in recognition that the “Birthers” are just as crazy and harmful as the “Truthers” and deserve to be treated accordingly.

Banning crazies on your website is a good first step. Now, the conservative movement needs to hold its leadership to account on the issue. If not, then the politicians will continue to cultivate the crazies and undermine the conservative movement’s credibility as Erick fears.

So where does this leave RedState with regards to birther politicians and candidates? Will RS support JD Hayworth? I know RS is endorsing Karen Handel in GA-GOV race, but what about Rep. Nathan Deal in the meantime?
