Birther wingnuts may have to shut-up now

A crazy right-wing conspiracy author by the name of Jerome Corsi was on the verge of releasing a book titled:  Where’s the Birth Certificate.  Another birther attack on Barack Obama. 

Corsi is quite whacked out. 

Jerome Robert Corsi (born August 31, 1946) is an American author, best-known for his two New York Times bestselling books: The Obama Nation and Unfit for Command (with co-author John O’Neill). Both books, the former written in 2008 and the latter in 2004, attacked Democratic presidential candidates and were strongly criticized for including numerous factual errors.

In other books and columns for conservative websites such as WorldNetDaily and Human Events, Corsi has discussed topics that are considered conspiracy theories in some circles, such as the alleged plans for a North American Government, criticism of the United States government for allegedly covering up information about the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001,  promoting the Abiogenic theory of the origin of oil (arguing that oil is produced from chemical reactions in the Earth, in contrast to the general consensus of the scientific community that oil is produced from organic materials, such as zooplankton and algae), and alleged United States support of Iran in its attempts to develop nuclear weapons.

But today, under unrelenting controversy over the issue, the Obama administration finally released the President’s long-form birth certificate.  So stop the presses, Corsi may have wasted a lot of his useless time.

Washington (CNN) — The White House released copies of President Barack Obama’s original long-form birth certificate Wednesday, seeking to put an end to persistent rumors that he was not born in the United States.

The certificate states, as Obama’s advisers have repeatedly said, that the president was born at Honolulu’s Kapiolani Hospital on August 4, 1961. Doubters insist Obama was born overseas — possibly in his father’s home country of Kenya — and may be constitutionally ineligible to serve as president.

“We do not have time for this kind of silliness,” Obama told reporters at the White House. “I’ve been puzzled at the degree to which this (story) just kept on going.”

“Normally I would not comment on something like this,” the president said. But the country has “some enormous challenges out there” that it will not be able to effectively meet “if we’re distracted.”

But this will not stop the radical anti-Obama quacks.  World Net Daily (a website for the rabid anti-Obama mentally challenged) is already talking about Obama having dual citizenship.  Because his father was Kenyan these nuts contend that Obama may have dual citizenship.  This makes Obama ineligible to be president.  Grasping at straws.  For some it will never end.

But for the idiot Jerome Corsi.  That book contract may have to be paid back to the publisher.  Bloody idiot.
