One for the Birthers*

For the sore loser Republicans who doubt that President Obama was born in the U.S., I have two words: Hillary Clinton. Knowing the thoroughness (and perhaps ruthlessness) of the Clinton campaign, if there was any truth to this rumor, it surely would have been exposed during the Democratic primaries.

Alas, most of the "birthers" are also Hillary-haters, so they would probably say she's just part of the conspiracy. But seriously, this woman would have done almost anything to win, so what reason would she have to cover up Obama's alleged disqualification from office?

It's frightening how many people are buying into this birther bullshit. And how long will this go on? Sheesh, people, he was sworn in seven months ago!
