Birthers spend their time the best way they know how

After reading yet another email from Human Events - Headquarters of the Conservative Underground (which I emphasize because the phrase is utterly ridiculable) - about the demands for Obama's birth certificate, I have now decided that the "birther" movement is a great thing for this country.

It is not a waste of anybody's time or resources, because the only people wasting their time on it are crazy conservative fundies who don't have anything valuable to contribute to this society anyway. So let them keep insisting that Obama produces his 1961 copy of his birth certificate - if he even has it!!! For the rest of us (i.e. who aren't self-proclaimed crazy conservative fundies) it needn't amount to anything but an occasional chuckle in the company of Keith Olbermann or Jon Stewart (and go to to see the certificate).

Here are some of the better goodies in the incredible long conspiracy-theory style letter that I got this morning:
First, they ignored us... then, they ridiculed us... now, they're fighting us.

Soon, we will win. But we need YOUR help to get over that finish line!
Actually, we're still at the ridicule stage.
WHAT is Barack Obama trying to hide? WHAT is he afraid of? WHY doesn't he just release these documents to prove that he is a natural-born citizen and, therefore, qualified to serve as President -- especially his actual birth certificate?
It's a common tactic also of creationists to ask what their opponents are afraid of. "Why don't you show us the evidence that we evolved from monkeys? What are you afraid of?"
Frankly, the evidence that Barack Hussein Obama was born in Africa -- not Hawaii as he claims -- and, therefore, cannot serve as the President of the United States, is compelling.
Really? Let's see what this "compelling" evidence is (with my comments in red):
* First, Mr. Obama's refusal to release his birth certificate. If he has nothing to hide, what does he gain by refusing to allow the press to see the birth certificate? [The press has seen it.]
* Second, the contention by Barack Obama's half-sister, Maya Soetoro-Ng, that Mr. Obama was born in a particular Hawaiian hospital, only to claim that it was in a different hospital several years later. Plus, there is the recent letter that Mr. Obama wrote, contradicting his previous statements as to which hospital that he claims to have been born in, in Hawaii. [So his sister can't remember an event she wasn't present at (she was born in 1970).]
* Third, the erecting of a wall around Barack Obama's grandmother, the late Madelyn Dunham, by Mr. Obama, thus cutting off access to the one person then alive who would have been present if he was actually born in Hawaii. [Perhaps there was another reason to protect her against hordes of crazy conservative fundies late in her life? Either way, do you think there's a chance she would do anything but confirm that Obama was born in Hawaii?]
* Fourth, the posting of law enforcement personnel at the two hospitals in Honolulu mentioned by Ms. Soetoro-Ng in an effort to block the press from discovering the truth about the birth certificate. [Or to control hordes of crazy conservative fundies, maybe?]
* Fifth, a taped phone conversation with Mr. Obama's step-grandmother, who claims that she was present at his birth... in what is now called Kenya! [That would indeed be an interesting recording to listen to. I honestly never heard about it before. Let's hear it. Then weigh that evidence against all the people who testify that he was born in Hawaii. But, throwing the crazy conservative fundies a bone, do go searching for this taped phone conversation. Do spend all your time following this lead, please.]
* Sixth, the "birth certificate" posted on the Obama campaign website and other liberal websites. Since Barack Obama was born in 1961, long before laser printers and office computers, his original birth certificate would be typewritten ... unlike the laser printed "copy" purported to be genuine. [As is very common, the birth certificate we have seen is not an original from 1961. The records of his birth are kept by the State of Hawaii, and they can print new copies on request. If Obama forged this certificate, that would be a felony committed years prior to running for for president (to get his passport, for example).]
So, reader, how "compelling" do you find this evidence? On a scale from -3 to 11, I'd say it's an imaginary number, like -666i.
Are you willing to see the Constitution shredded by the Left? Will you sit back and do nothing while a foreign-born person may be illegally occupying the White House as President of the United States?
I thought they wanted to just see the evidence, but here it looks like they have made up their mind already (but of course, the whole letter a scare-tactic to get fellow crazy conservative fundies to donate to Human Events, so, as with all advertising, anything goes as long as it sells.)

Amusingly, signed by Gary Kreep.

P. S.: This is the biggest political cover-up in American history! It would be so simple to release the documents to PROVE that Barack Obama is a natural-born citizen... IF HE HAD THE DOCUMENTS!

America has never before faced such a threat. Everything we hold dear is at risk with Barack Obama sitting as President without him releasing his actual birth certificate and other documents.

Barack Hussein Obama thinks he can get away with DUPING the American people and DESTROYING the U.S. Constitution. DON'T LET HIM DO IT! Please, make your best possible contribution to USJF today:
Keep up the good work!
