Fox News reports that the so-called “birther bill” (HB2177) has cleared the Arizona legislature and is on its way to Governor Brewer for an expected signature. This is the first of the various bills in 14 states to get this far, most having died in committee.
Many have expressed concerns over the constitutionality of the bill and the motivations of its supporters. Others speculate that it will be quickly overturned by the courts and still others think it will prove the undoing of Barack Obama’s re-election campaign in 2012.
For my part, this turn of events will give us something to talk about until the next election heats up.
