Birthing a Reality-Based Community
Hey -- looks like the release of Obama's long-form birth certificate did have an impact on birther tendencies. The percentage of Americans who think President Obama was born in the US has moved up 12 points -- from 55% to 67%. And now a full 45 percent of Republicans are convinced of Obama's American provenance. Why, that's almost a majority! And it only took another heaping dose of incontrovertible evidence debunking a conspiracy theory that should rank right up there with "the Israelis destroyed the Twin Towers" and "the Moon Landing was faked," too.
