According to news reports, the Birther Summit is offering $5,000 for a copy of an original Honolulu newspaper announcing Barack Obama’s birth. Summit director Dean Haskins said:
the only evidence anyone has actually seen of the birth’s announcements has been copies of microfiche versions of those newspapers, and they contain suspicious anomalies
The papers in question are: Aug. 13, 1961 edition of The Honolulu Advertiser or the Aug. 14, 1961 edition of the Honolulu Star-Bulletin.
Haskins, of course, says that the newspaper wouldn’t prove anything. Sure it would: that birthers are crazy.
I just hope some hoarder from 50 years ago has a copy, so at least someone will benefit from birther stupidity.
