From Stephen Webster at RawStory:

GOP congressmen run from blogger asking ‘birther’ questions

Mike Stark of Firedoglake and Huffington Post thinks he has stumbled onto the reason George W. Bush was elected to the presidency twice: The GOP’s base, as exemplified by this ubiquitous “birther” nonsense, must be Insane.

In  the video below, he puts the birther fictions before a series of Republican congressmen on the hill, and their reactions are priceless.

Notes Jane Hamsher over at Firedoglake:

I admit it. I wish Cheney were president.

I thought it was time I outed myself. And all those like me, on left wing websites, who dare criticize President Obama. For compromising or selling out on trivial issues such as DOMA, the bank bailout, secrecy, torture, or prosecuting war crimes. We don’t really care about issues. We’re all about personality. And we all secretly wish Dick Cheney were president. Because we get the vapors for rabid weasels.

New Hope for the Brain Damaged (Possibly even for Bush…?)
