★ The “Birthers” are so crazy, stupid, and increasingly desperate to hurt the Democrats who are dominating them, that they can’t be bothered with “fact-checking”. I only wish that I had thought of this first. While the wacky, tin-foil hat wearing, conspiracy theory movements are making headlines based solely on entertainment value in this post Sarah Palin era. It still doesn’t change the fact that the GOP is NOT relevant. Not even remotely relevant.
Not even @aplusk (Ashton Kutcher) could’ve setup a better Punk. From the TPM:
It now looks like the forged “Kenyan” Obama birth certificate that was briefly promoted by the Birthers — actually an altered copy of a decades-old South Australian birth certificate — was deliberately designed as a prank on the Birther movement itself, Dave Weigel reports.
