Oh For God's Sake Let It Go Already

I don't know if it was Rick Perry telling a reporter that he has to ask Barack Obama if he "loves America" or what, but as we head into the 2012 election season, Birtherism is back.

David at C&L:
A conservative website claimed Thursday that Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio has promised to investigate President Barack Obama's eligibility to run for re-election.

According to WorldNetDaily, about 325 so-called birthers gathered Wednesday night to sign a petition alleging that Obama planned to use a fake birth certificate to run for office in 2012.

Jerome Corsi, author of, Where's the Birth Certificate? reportedly presented Arpaio with the petition during a one-hour meeting Thursday.

"Arpaio told the tea party leaders the complaint is within his jurisdiction, and he will be forced to investigate," WND wrote. "He said he expects political pressure, but he pointed out that as the chief law enforcement officer of Maricopa County, he's taken an oath to respond to citizens who approach him about enforcing the law."

Head, desk, etc.

There is no fact so deeply embedded in reality that the U.S. conservative right cannot have massive orgasms by denying it.

It's a way for them to proclaim "WE are not them without spelling out clearly that the thems that they are objecting to are non-whites or educated, compassionate, poor, sick, disabled, gay or otherwise significantly different than the lily-white ruling social clique at their high school or church.

Because what they know in their hearts is that the person in the mirror is a mediocre, selfish, petty, _hole.
