The Birth Certificate Circus ::: Smoking Gun Opens Up "Birther" Can of Worms

When I was waiting for the bus this morning, I was thinking of writing a new post about the Barack Obama "birther" brouhaha. It was gonna be a kind of a "so what, move on" piece. Heck, I'd already posted and updated an article regarding that birth certificate, but in the course of the day, the President released his document (Donald Trump proudly took credit for the release) - but then Matt Drudge posted a link to a website that apparently had been scrubbed clean - a site that supposedly did a step-by-step document dissection in Adobe Illustrator and presented an argument that the paper was a fake. The site was originally posted on the Smoking Gun, which then brought the "birther" concept to new levels... here it all is, ripped from DRUDGE!

HERE IT IS!

OBAMA SHOWS LONG FORM...

IS IT REAL?

Composed of layers?

TRUMP TAKES CREDIT...

  1. It makes no sense to me that he would release this today like he did. I was hoping he was clearing this up but something is just not right about his release.

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
