Born to be a birther, or, Birther till I die!

This third-string squad of colorful right-wing nutjobs and cranks, including serial racial profiler Sheriff Joe Arpaio and serial Supreme Court rejectee Orly Taitz, are teasing us that they're about to go "Geraldo" with a really big revelation about Obama's citizenship that will blow the lid off this whole thing.

I don't even know why I'm dignifying this nonsense with a re-post, but... something about this quixotic quest of theirs has passed from unbelievable to infuriating to laughable to passe and now to... a study in human beings' perseverance to regard a lie as the truth, no matter what.  And there's something strangely poignant in their complete disregard for how stupid they look to others in doing so.  They don't care.  They're just going to keep at this thing until... like in the real "Cold Case" show, some bit of evidence turns up 30 years later, like Obama's real Kenyan passport, or his straight-A childhood report card from his radical Muslim madrasah, and they'll be able to yank Obama out of his old folks' home and deport him to Sweden to join Roman Maronie.

Unfortunately, it is always believable when nutjobs choose to believe in things that are just plane irrational. I have lost my ability to be surprised by this. I do believe that it is complete lunacy, but the faith shown by these people is akin to their faith in their chosen religion.
