Obama Demands Birth Certificate From Innocent Child in Orlando

It's been three years of bullying for Obama and his origin of birth. Even after he showed us a video of his Miracle of Life ala the opening scene of 'The Lion King,' Donald Trump and the army of birthers - an entire sub-sect of our political culture that is named after their one ideology: Obama wasn't born in America - continued the clarion call for the President's papers. And this accusation has leaked a bit onto the national stage, with Romney cracking a birther 'joke' a few weeks back ago at a campaign stop.

The President just cannot escape the birth certificate thing, no matter how many times he releases the long-form version or flashes pictures of his mother and father to the press. Needless to say, Obama has become the weak geek whose constantly getting jumped for his lunch money in this only-in-America situation. That teenage angst and isolation boils up over time; soon enough, the geek has the courage to man up to the bullies. 

That or simply take out one's frustration on someone even smaller.

Birthers Use Barack Obama's 50th Birthday to Beat Birth Certificate Horse, Again

Via Angela N.
We want to wish President Barack Obama, who is a Leo, a happy 50th birthday. Of course, not everyone is happy to let the president have his day. The birthers over at Death By 1000 Papercuts insist on making this day about the question of Obama's birth certificate.

Donald Trump Resumes Birtherism After Brief Pause

Orange-coiffed humanoid Donald Trump is as committed to birtherism as he is to crappy local chain Pizza Famiglia. Despite Barack Obama's "longform" birth certificate, the release of which was meant to quell birther hysteria, Trump is sticking to his guns. He has to stay in the spotlight by any means possible otherwise he might explode.
Trump, who has since tried to stoke talk of his running as an independent, reprised his calls for Obama's birth certificate -- though the White House officially released a long-form copy of the document in April.

"I don't know exactly what he showed, but you know, some day somebody's gonna figure that one out," he said.




America Has Grown Weary of 'Presidential Contender' Donald Trump

The reality-show-business-person-famewhore who is Donald Trump -- who might or might not be running for president -- is no longer so popular in America. It seems the whole birther issue kind of lost him some fans -- that and the fact that Barack Obama was orchestrating a raid on Number 1 Terrorist Enemy Osama Bin Laden while Trump was just mouthing off about some birth certificate. According to a new survey by Public Policy Polling, reported by the Daily News, Trump has fallen from onetime "most popular" in the GOP field to least, tied for fifth place with Ron Paul. Now the leading GOP contender is Mike Huckabee, followed by Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, and Sarah Palin. Neither Huckabee nor Gingrich have yet announced they will be seeking the nomination, which means we can expect Trump to continue to tease out his possible run for as long as he gets any sort of publicity from it.

10 Percent of Birthers Will Not Be Convinced By Some Silly Actual Birth Certificate

Recall last week, when one of the major issues being discussed by the fine people of our nation was still whether or not Barack Obama was born in the U.S., even though his administration released a copy of his birth certificate years ago. Still, there were plenty of detractors who said he could have faked it, and where was the long-form version, and show the birth certificate! And then Donald Trump started talking about it (ooh, in the past week we've almost forgotten about him!). So Obama finally showed everyone his long-form birth certificate and told everyone, basically, that there were bigger issues to deal with and could we all just sort of shut up about it now? And then he had Osama bin Laden killed, and so we all pretty much did, and started talking about that instead.

Baratunde Thurston: Q&A with the Man Behind the Viral Response to Trump

The most sophisticated and serious response to Donald Trump's glee over the release of Barack Obama's long-form birth certificate came, oddly enough, from a stand-up comedian who works at the Onion. Baratunde Thurston's impassioned YouTube monologue touched a chord with viewers on Wednesday and quickly went viral. We talked with him about it.

Barack Obama and the Birthers: Yes, White America's Mind is Still Lost, Poll Indicates

A paltry, pathetic 38 percent. According to the latest Gallup/USA Today poll, that's the percentage of Americans who definitely believe that President Barack Obama was born in the United States.

It's in this toxic environment that the White House has released a copy of Obama's long-form birth certificate.

We noted last September that "White America Has Lost Its Mind." Apparently it still hasn't found it.

Donald Trump, Birther, Continues to Tempt Us With Possible Presidential Run

A very bronzed Donald Trump, continuing in his campaign for our attention as to whether he will or won't run for president in 2012, has taken to The View to express his views, including concerns over potential competitor (and current president) Barack Obama's birthplace, because this is a thought Trump once had in his head, or somehow it got there, maybe it trickled in an ear with some hair dye, or came out of the teevee box, but anyway, he's going to shout it over and over because he once heard that's what presidential candidates do.

Thumbnail image for barack_obama.jpg

Everyone take a deep breath, count to 10, and consult your apocalypse manual.

Babies: They May Be Catching (But Not in the Way You'd Think)

Alert: Babies are contagious, especially if you work with people who have babies. And we don't mean germy, although that's definitely true. Hey, at least you can take Theraflu for that. But if you "catch a baby" (and that's not what we mean) from a coworker, you're going to be stuck with that thing for a good 20 or more years! Take proper cautions. We recommend Purell.
