Birthing Tilted Windmills (Updated) 0
This is silly.
And the reason it’s silly is that the governor of Hawaii could show a videotape of the live birth and the loonies on the right would claim it had been doctored.
Democratic Gov. Neil Abercrombie wants to find a way to release more information about President Barack Obama’s Hawaii birth and dispel conspiracy theories that he was born elsewhere.
Abercrombie was a friend of Obama’s parents and knew him as a child, and is deeply troubled by the effort to cast doubt on the president’s citizenship.
Loons and whackjobs will not be persuaded by evidence.
Addendum, Later That Afternoon:
Andy Borowitz satirizes the silly:
Speaking to reporters in Kailua, Birther leader Orly Taitz said that Hawaii cannot be considered part of the United States “unless it can produce an authentic statehood certificate.”
Ms. Taitz said that she did a thorough title search on the islands and has concluded that rather than being a U.S. state, “the islands of Hawaii appear to be colonies of Kenya.”
