Birthers are Funny

I know, I know they are crazy people who just can’t swallow the idea of a black man sitting at the desk in the oval office, but I can’t help but find them to be funny as hell. Sometimes they look almost pitiful in their struggle to change reality.

Why are they wasting their time trying to find the President’s birth certificate to prove he was born in Kenya? Haven’t they noticed the most obvious clue to his country of birth? Hello? Of course he was foreign born. Duh, he’s left handed.

Oh shit, now I’ve probably given them new ammunition for their pitiful little mission. Oh well, they are grasping at straws already so they would have probably gotten around to the south paw idea eventually.

Well, if the Hawaii certificate is fake, and they can't find one in Kenya (Btw - Mombassa wasn't IN Kenya when President Obama was born...) - then we can only reach one conclusion:

Now PoP why did you have to alert them to the fact that he is left handed. Everyone knows that there is a reason this is known as 'sinister' in heraldry. Besides he already told them he was sent from the planet Krypton by his father Jorel to save the world.

I'm a southpaw. at least I write left-handed. there're other things I can't do left-handed.

Why are lefties called south paws? It is probably pretty obvious, but I'm missing it....

I, too, am left-handed. So's my dad.
I'm an atheist. My dad is a god-botherer.
I was born left-handed, it wasn't a choice. Wait... what?

According to the 'New Dickson's Baseball Dictionary,' the term was coined in the late 1800s to describe left-handed pitchers, who, facing west in most ballparks, had their left arms hanging on the south side of the ballpark. A sportswriter, Harry Grayson, investigated this theory in 1951, and determined that most ballparks did, indeed, place home plate on the west side of the diamond, on the principle that this would keep the sun out of hitters' eyes during day games. The term has been applied to other sports, including boxing, and obviously came into general use. The term 'northpaw' never caught on, though.

And now you know.... the REST of the story.

the birthers and the 'astroturf' protestors and congressional town halls are really chappin' my hide.

You KNOW the president and his supporters are really touching a nerve in America. Ah, CHANGE is in the air.

here's what _I_ want to do:

after all-- they're perfectly capable of believing 16 impossible things before breakfast: the O was born in Africa, is a "Mohammedan", wants to destroy the US; evolution isn't happening; God is going to come down and gather them into heaven next week; the insurance companies have their best interests at heart; etc. etc. ad infinitum. so, what's just one more?

Birthers make me laugh because they're fools and frauds. Astroturfers upset me because they're shutting down public discourse - something their ever-righteous mouths are ever babbling we need more of.

As for clues: he doesn't look like Tiger Woods, the only black person they approve of, so: Kenya!
