The birthers make their (legislative) move

I have to say that this whole birther thing reminds me of the legalism of 12-year old boys playing Risk. Does no one among the birthers realize that the signal their machinations sends is "we don't think we can beat Obama in the marketplace of ideas, so we are doing this instead"?

I do like the bit about Hawaii proposing to charge $100 for copies of Obama's birth certificate. Why not balance the budget on the backs of the silly?

Addendum: I was stunned at the number of pop-ups at Mother Jones. I would have expected them to avoid such crass capitalist tools.
