I want to engage in a brief moment of “I told you so.” On December 31, 2010, I wrote this prediction for 2011:
A copy of Barack Obama’s original Birth Certificate will be released to the public
I also predicted on April 24, a scant 3 days before Barack Obama released his long-form birth certificate:
I think the birther movement has peaked.
The former is undoubtedly true. The latter will be proved or disproved in the years to come. One measure, albeit a crude one, of the strength of the birther movement is the number of people who visit this blog. Over half of the traffic here consists of people arriving via search engine, and most of these by searching for some variation of “obama conspiracy” where this blog has been top ranked for a very long time.
April of 2011 had more visitors recorded on this site than any other month since the first month this blog was in business.
