There is a giant meteor heading straight for Earth, only this time there is no deep oil drill team led by Bruce Willis that can stop it. At least that is what you would think is happening judging from the reaction of the conservative right to the news of President Obama’s re-election.
I can’t think of a single more embarrassing, ridiculous and infuriatingly stupid political conspiracy theory than that championed by the birthers.
The notion that our current president was not born in the United States has been debunked MULTIPLE times since 2008, yet members of the GOP continue to make it an issue 4 years later.
In the past few weeks we have seen the Iowa Republican Party’s platform committee chairman Don Racheter, Republican congressman Mike Coffman, Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett and Republican Band-Aid Donald Trump dig up the birther issue as if they were in a pet cemetery looking for Trump’s new hairpiece.
