The headline alone is excellent evidence these buffoons really are so extreme they're beyond even self-parody; like everything from Hinderaker, Esq., I've ever stumbled across the first sentence makes me wonder just what the hell kind of a lawyer he is, & how he could possibly be good at any kind of lawyering. Because the subject suddenly of "intense interest to America's reporters" is "How/why is Rudy Giuliani such a colossal jerk? Was he raised by a hoodlum or something?" not "Is Obummer a Christian?" (Doesn't one need to understand what one has read in order to practice law?)
Parody? No one can say.
IS BARACK OBAMA NOW, OR HAS HE EVER BEEN, A CHRISTIAN?
Nonetheless, he may be a better lawyer than I gave him credit for: Note the weaseling in the proposed evolution answer, sort of not really denying evolution, or even mentioning creationism, but a vague sop to different theories ("Teach the controversy!") of evolution. This is fun too: "It would be a full-time job to keep track of all of the scientific literature on evolution." Really? Someone's in for a surprise when they discover what you can keep track of on this new-fangled
And the concluding paragraph. Is "Don't answer anything potentially embarrassing; immediately scream bias & make it about/insult the reporter" best practice for dealing w/ the press? It's as if he knows there are no answers acceptable to both the primary voters who do "hate the news media" (not all Americans, just those lost in the loon bubble) & to, for lack of a better term, normal people, many of whom wish the media was better w/o actively "hating" it & most of whom just don't care.
Still, G.O.Presidential wanna-bes, better to be thought a weaselly jerk than to announce/admit actual beliefs & policies & thereby commit political suicide anywhere but in the reddest zones; do follow your mouthpiece's advice & fight back. Aggressively!
