Yes, I've been covering the "birthers" far more than they deserve. You could argue that The Rachel Maddow Show has too. There are some--including more than a few birthers themselves--who'd contend that any attention is good attention. I beg to differ.
The birther "movement" is ludicrous. Crazy. But it is also taking place in the exact same segment of the poplation that still thought George W. Bush was doing a heck of a job. It's the very same group that is enraptured by every utterance from Sarah Palin. They may be "fringe" but they have captured the heart and soul of today's Republican Party. So it is incumbant upon we liberal bloggers, and liberal pundits like Rachel to point out how crazy and stupid this all is. Because crazy or stupid may be evident to some of us. But others may see actual Congressmen backing this crap, and think it has some credence. It doesn't.
To see some debunking that lays waste to every birther theory, go here.
