In this hilarious, shocking, sad, and ultimately revealing video, Mike Stark of FireDogLake goes to Capitol Hill to interview various Republican Congressmen about Obama’s legitimacy as a U.S citizen.
Amazingly, most of the Republicans refuse to give a straight answer, refusing to verify the blatant truth that Obama is a natural born American:
The video is an indictment of the Republican Party’s inability to free itself from the rabid racism and xenephobia of the lunatic fringe. The Congressmen clearly know better, but cannot come down on the side of rationality for fear of alienating much of their base – the batshit crazy, frothing at the mouth nut jobs who claim to be conservative.
