Bill Maher has a very good op-ed today on the subject of the idiot Birther movement. You know, the one led by the crazy Russian woman who claims that we're living in Nazi Germany, which is supported by crazy Americans like the woman who screamed "I want my country back!"
Which I translate as meaning, "I want my white presidents back!"
In fact, the birther argument is so profoundly stupid that I can only conclude that what's driving it is far beyond, or below, the actual (stupid) argument being made. After long and careful thought on the subject (five minutes, max), I'm interpreting the birther position thusly:
Barack Obama cannot be an American citizen, because there are no educated black people in America unless they come from somewhere else.
