I’ll be the first to admit that there are a lot of birthers out there, perhaps millions. However, the evidence from the Terry Lakin trial suggests that there aren’t many serious birthers. The ease of publishing on the Internet magnifies the reach of birther activists, but when it comes to people willing to travel to support their number one cause, reports put the number at about 25. That’s about the same number that showed up for Phil Berg’s rally in Washington DC, and other birther events that actually required travel. While one person can put up a hundred web sites, that’s not a trick that can be pulled off in person.
There are a lot of birthers, but not many of them seem to take it that seriously.
