First of all, the "birthers" are delusional. Period. There is no evidence that would ever convince them that Barack Obama is eligible to be President. God himself could come down from on high and tell them to knock it off and they'd pass it off as dirty-commie-lib trickery.
I can't recall how many people I've seen whining about the birth certificate. "You can't get a passport with that kind of certificate. You have to have the 'long form'."
I checked my birth certificate against the one we've all seen for Barack Obama. There is no real difference in my "Certificate of Live Birth" from the state of Colorado, nor the ones for my two sons and the one published on the Internet for Barack Obama. I've got three passports acquired with those birth certificates as documentation that supposedly is not acceptable.
And yet, the idiocy persists. These are people who think belief is the answer to fact, science and reality. There is no convincing. There is only the hope that they find some new bone to gnaw.
As for those who might be convinced a birth certificate exists, one of the top "birthers", Jermoe Corsey, has started taking another tilt at this windmill. If you read his recent stuff, his new assertion is that it's not enough to be born in America. A "Natural Born Citizen" has to have a FATEHR who is a US Citizen at the time of birth. Not a mother; not be born on US soil. In 1789, when The Consitution was writting, only the father could pass on citizenship at birth. Therefore, no matter if an "acceptable" birth certificate is released, he won't stop his whining.
