the death of the birther issue

... or is it?  Now that President Obama has had his birth certificate released to shut up the weirdo-fringe element about whether he was born in the U.S. or not, will the birthers just move on to some other stupid waste-of-time issue? After all, this wasn't really about where Obama was born:  it was to remind the lunatics that he "isn't one of us" -- the transparent message being "he's not a true-blooded American -- he's not 'Christian' -- he's not white."

Cartoon candidate Donald Trump now wants to see transcripts from Obama's school years, the obvious implication being that he thinks Obama used Affirmative Action to get into Harvard.  I'm a little surprised that Trump turned out to be this kind of person, courting the white-racist radicals.  Luckily, there aren't enough of them anymore to get him elected President. 

It's a shame there can't be any rational political discussion anymore or, if there is such a thing, that the media choose not to cover legitimate debate, preferring the "reality-show" attention-grabbers.
