Major Story at

politicoA very important article, Culture of conspiracy: The Birthers, was published today at

Bill Clinton had the Vince Foster “murder.” George W. Bush had 9/11 Truth. And the new administration has brought with it a new culture of conspiracy: The Birthers.

Out of the gaze of the mainstream and even the conservative media is a flourishing culture of advocates, theorists and lawyers, all devoted to proving that Barack Obama isn’t eligible to be president of the United States. Viewed as irrelevant by the White House, and as embarrassing by much of the Republican Party, the subculture still thrives from the conservative website WorldNetDaily, which claims that some 300,000 people have signed a petition demanding more information on Obama’s birth, to Cullman, Alabama, where Sen. Richard Shelby took a question on the subject at a town hall meeting last week.

This is clearly the most important web article on Obama Conspiracy Theories since Salon.Com’s Why the stories about Obama’s birth certificate will never die.

One of the major threats I see to the birther movement is the  revelation in this story that Obama’s lawyers are working pro bono.

    Phil over at Right Side of Life is giving a poin-by-point rebuttal of the Politico Article. It appears he too is delusional. They rally hate Obama and it blinds them!

    I don’t think there’s anything closet about it anymore. He’s a nice enough guy that I’ve traded info back and forth with. And he sent a nice email expressing his dislike of Dr. Orly’s tactics when she had her cavity creeps harassing posters at Yes To Democracy.

    But it’s also evident he really wants to believe in the birther claims as well.

    Since President Obama was elected by the People and sworn in as President, he is not a usurper.

    Phil’s in the “just defending the constitution from someone who *just happens* to be someone I despise” camp. It’s the veneer of respectability that the politico article refers to.
