Born in the USA

Dear Madame L,

I have a friend who says President Obama was born in Kenya and hates America. What do you have to say about that?

Sincerely, or not,

Semi-Birther


Dear Semi,

Madame L wonders how literate your friend is. Does your friend have internet access? Does your friend read the newspaper? Does your friend watch news on any channels besides Fox?

President Obama's birth certificate has been made available literally for years now (since 2008). It's online, just in case you're not sure.

Madame L notes that even Michele Bachmann has recently acknowledged that so-called Birthers are wrong, and, worse (in Rep. Bachmann's opinion), damaging the Republican Party.

Does Madame L think that Rep. Bachmann's turnaround is a coincidence, or somehow related to publicity-hound clown Donald Trump's latest bid for attention? (Answer: You're right! Madame L thinks it is not a coincidence.)

Best,

Madame L

Ummm. I'm trying to think of a polite way to comment about the people trying to foment this out-of-a-monkey's- myth without getting enraged in the effort.

There was an actual political party in late-19th-Century America called (I'm not making this up) The Know-Nothing Party.

I think I've just seen several zombies, and one of them has styrofoam hair.
