(Forbes) A great moment in the annals of birtherism took place last week at CPAC….and nobody much appeared to notice.

Shortly after Sarah Palin finished cooing over the introduction she had received from Senator Ted Cruz—during which the half-term governor reminded us that we need more people like the Texas Senator in Washington—Palin turned her attention to President Obama’s support for background checks for those who wish to purchase a gun.

“More background checks?” Palin asked. “Dandy idea, Mr. President -should’ve started with yours.”

While Palin’s return to birtherism accomplished the intended laugh from the appreciative crowd, there was someone in the room who was likely not laughing.
