Has any other candidate for President been required to prominently andpublicly display his/her birth certificate to prove they are American (particularly after they have already won the nomination)?
If so, I am unaware of this happening. If not, I guess this is just more proof of Geraldine Ferraro’s thoughtful “black guys have it easy” thesis.
*** Update ***
The verdict from the lunatic fringe- it isn’t good enough! the birth certificate needs additional debunking. A genealogist needs to be summoned to determine whether or not Obama’s father is indeed “African.”
You think I am kidding? Check out the comments at Hot Air.
*** Update #2 **
I am looking at my original birth certificate right now, from WV, and it does not specify what hospital I was born in, or what time I was born. Interestingly enough, it does not ask what “race” I am, it simply asks what color I am (“White”, the birth certificate informs us). Although if we wanted to haggle, sometimes when I have had too much sun I take on a pinkish red. Clearly there is a conspiracy in WV regarding my birth.
