Steve King Attempts To Keep Birther Movement Alive

We won’t even ask the question.  The answer is no, there is no limit to GOP right-winger stupidity.  Did you hear what Steve King said last week?   Now, according to District 4’s representative in the U.S. Congress, the birth announcement of the President in the Honolulu newspapers could have been telegraphed from Kenya  (all part of the socialist plot to make sure the infant ended up in the White House half a century later).  Just to show how reality based he is though, King acknowledges the unlikelihood of getting this idea to fly before November.

“We went down into the Library of Congress and we found a microfiche there of two newspapers in Hawaii each of which had published the birth of Barack Obama. It would have been awfully hard to fraudulently file the birth notice of Barack Obama being born in Hawaii and get that into our public libraries and that microfiche they keep of all the newspapers published. That doesn’t mean there aren’t some other explanations on how they might’ve announced that by telegram from Kenya. The list goes on. But drilling into that now, even if we could get a definitive answer and even if it turned out that Barack Obama was conclusively not born in America, I don’t think we could get that case sold between now and November.”
