Finally ending (hopefully) the conspiracy theories, The Messiah apparently saw some political advantage in revealing his actual birth certificate today:
In a press conference announcing the release of his long form birth certificate, Obama denounced the “silliness,” the “sideshows and carnival barkers” that forced him to release a completely unremarkable document after years of speculation on the issue had metastasized into a political phenomenon he could no longer ignore.
“We do not have time for this kind of silliness. We’ve got better stuff to do. I’ve got better stuff to do. We’ve got big problems to solve,” the president said.
Minutes later, he boarded a helicopter, bound for Chicago where he will interview with Oprah, the queen of daytime TV talk shows who recently launched her own network.
Of course, the silliness could have been ended a lot sooner if The Messiah obtained, as noted, this "completely unremarkable" document and released it. But let's face it -- by not doing so he made a lot of people look like idiots (Donald Trump being not the least of which). So ... why the revelation now? Something must be up. And it certainly ain't about ending the "silliness" and getting down to work; if The Messiah was actually concerned about that then WTF is he doing going on Oprah??
And Obama's bitching about the supposed media coverage of the Birther issue is just that -- bitching. The fact is, there hasn't been much coverage of it, The Donald notwithstanding. And the network that kept the issue alive the most? Nope, not Fox. It was MSNBC.
