The birther baloney (about Obama's birth certificate) is in the news again, due to some "mainstream" personalities. Chris Matthews mentioned it on Hardball and the new Hawaiian Governor's desire to have more information released. (Chris Matthews Wants To See Obama’s Full Birth Certificate)
I wrote a post about the issue back in 2008: Obama's Birth Certificate. In that post I ignored the "long form" birth certificate, but mentioned the Honolulu newspaper announcement of his birth. There is enough evidence of baby Baracks's U.S. birth to satisfy a normal person, yet the Birthers persist. So, why not release a copy of the original, signed birth certificate?
