    The notary that signed the copy of Obama’s Hawaii birth certificate should countersue for defamation. They’re basically accusing him of lying about this copy.

    Oh sheesh. Really. *This* Birther nonsense still?

    Will they get Donald Trump in as a witness now I wonder?

    Love the way they lingered on Barack Hussein Obama’s middle name in that clip there too.

    @lordshipmayhem :

    Not to mention Obama’s parents & obstrectician!

  • ‘Tis Himself, OM.

    The birthers don’t actually care where Obama was born. They care about him being Black.

    I wish idiocy like this came with a short shelf-life. As it is, it seems the only things that will survive a planetary disaster would be roaches, rats and birthers (comparison completely intentional, although a bit unfair to roaches and rats).

    Psssssss: this is not idiocy: this is called “Rigging elections”, also “attempting a coup d’état”, or more prosaically “Democracy sucks because we can’t win everytime, especially since we’re a bunch of inept parasites, and since we lack the firepower to slaughter the left into submission, we’re going to try any tangential trick no matter how stupid it looks, becuse the sheer and very obvious stupidity of this may make the ennemy think we’re too dumb to be as depraved as we are”
