Obama campaign stirs up birth certificate controversy, for a price

The controversy over President Obama’s birth certificate seemed to have subsided. But people inside his campaign  sense it’s still festering. They’ve decided to combat the issue by attacking it head-on, while making a little money in the process, the Washington Examiner reports. They’re selling coffee mugs for $20 that display a picture of the President, an image of the certificate, and the line, “Made in the USA.”

The only reason this stupid issue is still around is because none of you media types has the cajones to say on air, “Look, this birther crap is just that – crap!” There’s no truth to it, and our station/network will not carry any more stories about it.”
Why can’t any of you media types do your friggin job! Comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable!

It’s funny how the birthers are still on this birth certificate issue but no one asked about John McCain’s and he was born in Panama.

Hank: McCain was born in the Panama Canal Zone, which was United States territory at the time. That would be why no one asked about his birth certificate.

The birthers are right there with the 9/11 truthers and the moon-landing deniers for pure willful stupidity. They’re marginal and irrelevant. But the Obama campaign wants to confer some relevance upon them, as a subtle way of characterizing those who oppose the president’s policies. If Obama can’t convince us that the opposition is made up of bad people, then he’ll have to run on his record. One can certainly understand him not wanting to have to do that.
