Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the political water, the birthers returned. Or, maybe they never left. On April 27, President Obama released his Long Form Birth Certificate. Other than Donald Trump taking credit for the birth certificate, we’ve had relative silence from the birthers.
Well, maybe they didn’t really disappear.
Just a month after Obama released his birth certificate, Birther Conspiracy Theorist in Chief, Jerome Corsi released his book, “Where’s the Birth Certificate,” which of course, claimed that the President is ineligible to hold office. The book debuted at number six on the New York Times Best Seller List.
Just yesterday, Arizona’s ultra-controversial Sheriff, Joe Arpaio, has assembled a “birther posse,” just to make sure the President isn’t an illegal from Kenya, I assume.
Crazy eyed immigrant and Queen of the Birthers, Orly Taitz, wants to run against Dianne Feinstein. While I’m no fan of Feinstein, at least she is sane.
Winthrop University in South Carolina recently conducted a poll. Included in their findings:
Among SC Republicans/Republican Leaners

- 36% Say He Was Definitely or Probably Born in Another Country
- And Nearly 30% Say Obama’s a Muslim
