Birthers and BalderdashPosted Saturday, April 30, 2011, at 3:21 PM
Every politician in office has had to bear the brunt of attacks, many of which are quite ridiculous. But the Birther Movement has to take the cake as far as grasping at straws to delegitimize an elected official.
During the last presidential election, why was McCain not torn to shreds over his birth in Panama? Maybe I missed it, but I don't remember once it being demanded of him to provide additional proof of being an American citizen, despite him being born in a place that is most definitely not a state in the union.
Sadly, even with the release of his birth certificate, this debate isn't going to die. I rather enjoyed this version of Obama's birth certificate. I'm hoping that the Model Number/Robot thing takes off. That could be fun.
Hopefully now we can move on to issues that REALLY matter.
