Today President Obama released his long form birth certificate. Go here to view the video. This should convince all but the deeply conspiratorial among us, although since I include most of the Birther movement in that category, I doubt if the release of the birth certicate will slow them down one iota. I have long thought that Obama did not release his long form birth certificate because he secretly loved the Birthers, who allowed his allies to tar all Obama critics as being delusional nutcases. What I find interesting is why did he decide to release his birth certificate now?
