I should probably ignore this birth certificate story. Or I should try to treat it with humor. But I already tried that in a previous post, describing my own Hawaiian investigation, and for some reason my investigation did not get as much play in the media as one big, fat, loudmouthed, bad-haired idiot talking about the fictitious investigation he conducted. So I can't be humorous about this today. I just feel sad.
Instead of gloating about having accomplished something positive, the big, fat, loudmouthed, bad-haired idiot should be ashamed that he revived this non-issue for no other reason than to draw attention to himself. The media should be ashamed that they gave any coverage to loudmouthed idiots who tell lies for their own self-aggrandizement. And the rest of us should wonder why we paid any attention to this story.
Three years ago, the Obama campaign released a document that would have been accepted in evidence in every court in America, but that was not good enough for a lot of people. The document that was released today probably still won't be good enough for some people. But if it ends the silliness, release of this document might serve a useful purpose. If it makes us wonder, even for a second, why we pay more attention to the deranged rantings of pretend presidential candidates, than we do to actual problems that affect our lives, maybe that would be a useful purpose also.
