The Birthers Won’t Give Up

Birther queen Orly Taitz- surprise! – dismisses the long-form birth certificate:

Taitz thinks that the birth certificate should peg Obama’s race as “Negro” and not “African.” “In those years … when they wrote race, they were writing ‘Negro’ not ‘African’,” Taitz says. “In those days nobody wrote African as a race, it just wasn’t one of the options. It sounds like it would be written today, in the age of political correctness, and not in 1961 when they wrote white or Asian or ‘Negro’.

A birther legislator grasps at other straws.
