Barack Obama's Birth Certificate: Here It Is! But Something About It Looks Fishy...

Screen shot 2011-04-27 at 9.03.43 AM.jpg
Kenya, East Africa?! It says so right there on the paper... (Haha, just kidding.) That's the birthplace of Obama's father, who shares the name Barack Hussein Obama, but was not birthed on August 4, 1961. Our president was born in Honolulu, Hawaii. Shut up, birther idiots. Shut up, Donald Trump. As if this is going to do anything to quiet a conspiracy theory that's nothing more than thinly veiled racism, the White House has released a copy of President Barack Obama's "long form" birth certificate from Hawaii, which required a special request from the most powerful man in the world. The state eventually made an "exception" and now we have a Hawaiian birth certificate to add to the Hawaiian certificate of birth we saw during the 2008 campaign.

There will be a press conference to announce this thing. Here's the White House's official word:

The President believed the distraction over his birth certificate wasn't good for the country. It may have been good politics and good TV, but it was bad for the American people and distracting from the many challenges we face as a country. Therefore, the President directed his counsel to review the legal authority for seeking access to the long form certificate and to request on that basis that the Hawaii State Department of Health make an exception to release a copy of his long form birth certificate. They granted that exception in part because of the tremendous volume of requests they had been getting. President Barack Obama's long form birth certificate can be seen here (PDF). Correspondence with the Hawaii State Department of Health can be seen here (PDF).

At a time of great consequence for this country -- when we should be debating how we win the future, reduce our deficit, deal with high gas prices, and bring stability to the Middle East, Washington, D.C., was once again distracted by a fake issue. The President's hope is that with this step, we can move on to debating the bigger issues that matter to the American people and the future of the country.

Jesus fucking Christ.

@CptZEEP: Wherever you fall on the political spectrum, you're a fucking dimwit. I accurately predicted the reaction of birthers to the release of the document. You can go to any report on the subject and read for yourself the comments that those particular fuckwits are leaving in response to it, and you'll note that many of them bear a striking resemblance to what I anticipated. I don't know whether you're a birther yourself and you resent an accurate portrayal of the views of your brethren, or you're not and you're too dim to notice that I'm mocking rather than endorsing their position. If the former, well, par for the course; if the latter, unhappy proof that stupidity isn't confined to the delusional right.

I leave the actual reading of winger blogs to Edroso, but Karnak-like I can predict that 1) Obama is doing this now because he's feeling the heat and is desperate to stop the investigation before it finally hits paydirt, and 2) the only reason he waited this long to produce the original (and it isn't even the original! it's a copy of the "original"!) is that this is how long it took to produce a forgery that passes muster, and 3) it clearly isforged because the Hawaiian alphabet has no letter S or B or R (true! "k" substitutes for "s" and "p" substitutes for "b" and "l" substitutes for "r"). So if he were really born in Hawaii, his name would be Pallaka Hukkeni Opama. Or something. It's the wrong color paper. Whatever. Can't fool us. Q.E.D., motherfuckers!

So Trump is proud of himself. That's not the usual reaction of someone who has just been made to look like a complete fool and charlatan and has been called a "carnival barker" by the President of the United States.

Actually, no! I pretty much called it. Among the most common responses from birthers to the announcement have been numbers 1) and 2). The belief that Obama is doing this now to distract the public from his bad grades that prove he's stupid or from Ben Bernanke's press conference is climbing the charts, as is the conviction that Obama has done this to prolong the controversy in order to distract everyone from rising gas prices and continuing unemployment--in other words, the continuing survival of the birther syndrome is all Obama's fault, which is something I couldn't have been expected to think of, and without it unemployed people would notice that they're out of work and we'd all be aware that it takes $60 to sort of fill our gas tanks.

No one seems to have gotten to 3), but then anyone who would think that would have to be too stupid to manage articulating it.
