We’re coming up on the third anniversary of the birther movement and the amount of bunk and debunking makes a huge pile. I think that those of us who do this debunking as a hobby would like to eventually make a science of it, to be able to look at a birther argument and say, “oh, that’s a number 1, 2, 7(c) and 12 bad argument; please refer to the numbered section in the handbook for refutation.”
We’re not there yet, but it’s not for lack of ample source material. Media Matters for America has now published a small collection of high-quality debunking in their new article, Myths and Falsehoods: Birther Edition. It’s not encyclopedic, but at least we have numbers 1-5 covered. The one about the fake Kenyan Birth Certificate needs work.
