DB: You don’t think that Obama wasn’t born in the United States, do you?

LS: He was not born here.

DB: [Sighs].

LS: That’s my belief. I was born here. If someone accuses me of not being born here, I can go — within 10 minutes — to my filing cabinet and I can pick up my real birth certificate and I can go, “See? Look! Here it is. Here it is.” The man has dodged everything. He dodges questions, he doesn’t answer anything. And why? Because he’s hiding something.

Scott talks about his actual political views in the interview as well. Click here to read the whole thing.

Orioles to remain on 105.7


DCRTV hears that it’s highly likely that the Orioles will return to CBS’s 105.7 The Fan, WJZ-FM, for the 2011 season and beyond. There’s been some talk that, with WJZ’s contract up this year, the team could move to Hearst’s WBAL-AM, 1090. But our sources tell us that probably won’t happen. The main reason, we hear, is that BAL is the Ravens’ flagship and that team’s management doesn’t want to “share” its station with its primary rival in the Baltimore sports media revenue pool. WBAL also airs the Ravens on sister WIYY-FM, 98 Rock.

Oriole Park at Camden Yards renovations

WBAL reports on the renovations:

Replacement of all seats in seating bowl will be finished during this offseason.

The club level and upper deck will get wider seats, and less intrusive railings will be installed, and some parts of the club level will get drink rails.

Because of the changes, the seating capacity of Oriole Park at Camden Yards will be reduced to 45,971 from 48,290.

The moves are expected to be approved at the November 17 meeting of the Board of Public Works.

Orioles lose 5-0 at Seattle


arrod Washburn tossed a one-hitter for his ninth career complete game, leading the Seattle Mariners to a 5-0 victory over the Baltimore Orioles on Monday night.

Nick Markakis had the only hit off Washburn (4-5), a two-out single in the fourth. Washburn faced just one batter over the minimum, issuing no walks and striking out three in his 110-pitch effort.

Russell Branyan hit his 21st homer, Chris Woodward doubled in a pair of runs and Ichiro Suzuki had an RBI single for Seattle.

Washburn recorded the second one-hitter at Safeco Field and 10th in franchise history. It also was his first complete-game win since he beat the Oakland Athletics 2-0 on April 25, 2007, with one of his two three-hit games, his previous career low.

Brad Bergesen (5-3) went six innings for the Orioles, allowing four runs, three earned, and six hits. He walked four and struck out four.
