Like that sitcom “Rules of Engagement” and acid reflux, birtherism is back for another little run.
Michigan state Sen. Tom Casperson, a Republican who represents the state’s 38th District, went on a Lansing, Mich. radio program on Tuesday and was asked right of the bat whether he believes President Barack Obama was born in the U.S. His response?
“Don’t know,” Casperson said.
Ah, yes. Another politician embarks on a journey into the birther swamp.
“I don’t know because it seems like that issue was dropped immediately as far as the major media went,” Casperson told host Michael Patrick Shiels. “My gut tells me if it had been a different president, like say George W. Bush, they’d have been digging into that like there was no tomorrow, trying to get to the bottom of, which they never really did try to get to the bottom of. So it became a conspiracy theory and no big deal.”
Okay, the bottom of this is that anyone who still thinks the president wasn’t born in Hawai’i and questions his legitimacy to office after two elections is a racist loser. Check, please.
