Dear Birthers,

Congratulations. You got exactly what you didn't want.

Donald Trump may be preening over this, but in private, my guess is that he's cursing the Obama administration for actually releasing President Barack Hussein Obama's long-form birth certificate.

Why? Simple. As long as there was any possible doubt about what the certificate actually said, conspiracy theorists could make hay out of it. Donald Trump could continue to give interviews and speeches about it. They (the theorists) could continue to hang onto their belief system regarding Obama's birth, and Trump could continue to gather what I consider to be a ridiculous amount of America's attention by continuing to windbag on the "issue". But since the release of Obama's birth certificate, that has all evaporated. Only the worst die-hard conspiracy theorists could continue to hold to an incorrect belief when evidence to the contrary is publicly available and easy to find... oh, wait, right.

But of course, Trump needs a new target to stay in the limelight. Surely it couldn't be anything else about Obama's personal life, could it? After all, it'd be utterly inconsequential to his status as President... oh, no, wait, he's taking on Obama's school records next, and politics be damned to ye.


"We do not have time for this kind of silliness," Obama remarked upon the release. "I've got better stuff to do."

Ain't that the truth.

"Are you fucking serious?"
