So little question that the Senate passed a resolution to the effect... still no word on when Obama's resolution will be taken up.

no, it's all pretty much the same thing. all those anchor babies they are worried about are mexican, and obama is black...what they are really saying is, they believe the only people who are really truly citizens have white skins.

Yeah, always wondered about that. Especially during the election and McCain himself was up his own arse in birther assertions for Obama's claim to presidency.

Hehe, that's hilarious. And how convenient, just in time for the election.

He's a white dude, looks American. We only demand papers from darker-skinned people (see: Arizona).

There actually was a quite a bit out there about it if you follow political web sites.

Edit: But only sadists like me enjoy reading sites like those.

Right, wonks talked about it (which is how I know about it - I don't read opencongress.org for fun). For MSM it was barely a blip on the radar, and certainly never became part of the election discussion.

It's pretty crazy, but one of the local Dems is vouching that it's authentic. It highlights the need for a new way of voting, though. Can the US Government seriously not come up with an electronic system of voting that provides a paper receipt as a back up?

The funny thing is, the Democratic candidate should not have been even remotely close in this election. It's only because everyone is so pissed off at Walker that it was even close.

The inability of the Government to answer simple questions such as yours are the staples of conspiracy theorists.

Because it didn't need to be. The only reason Obama birth cert is in the media for questioning is because of a vocal group.

A vocal group that is full of sore losers.

Did we ever bring this one up?

Is it even a cliché anymore that the guy is from Texas? Dickhead.

Funny thing, the dick in the video is called POE.

Based on a Yale and George Mason University poll to gauge American opinions on climate change across party lines, those who identify as Tea Partiers (whether they're affiliated with any party) on the main:
1) Think they know all they need to know about climate change
2) Don't trust anybody sources of information on climate change as much as any other party (scientists, politicians, or news coverage)
3) Are wrong about it more than any other party
4) Are wrong about climate scientists more than any other party

So you have a worrying combination of being totally wrong and being so sure in that wrongness that you don't trust anybody telling you otherwise.

Um...

Duh?

It's nice to have a study to verify, but still, that ain't exactly surprising.
