Huffington Post(Yes The Huffington Post):Scenes From The Lunatic Fringe: The Obama Birth-Certificate
[link to www.huffingtonpost.com] From July 2008 If you're like me, and you follow the world of shut-ins and conspiracy whack jobs, you probably already know that there are people out there who believe that Senator Barack Obama was not born in the United States and has doctored his birth certificate. It's one of those smears that the New Yorker wasn't able to properly capture on that brilliantly orchestrated "satire" that absolutely put to bed much of the confusion voters have about Obama's fearful un-Americanness, precisely as the artist intended.
The idea, it seems, is that Obama was secretly born outside the United States and his parents said to themselves, back in 1961, "this interracial kid will probably be president some day so we'd better cover up his place of birth and pretend it happened in Hawaii so he'll be eligible even though he'd actually be eligible anyway." Something like that.
