A friend just emailed me to tell me that local right-wing radio guy Bob Lonsberry just spent an hour on Obama’s birth certificate.
I believe that neo-birtherism — hey, I believe Obama was born here but there are legitimate questions — will gain momentum over the next year. I believe that we will hear at least one non-partisan Village type (Cokie, Howard Fineman) say “just release all the documents” and that some “respectable” conservative (Gerson, Kraut, Douthat) will engage in some form of neo-birtherism (why is his name misspelled on his student id, etc.).
What do you think?
