Andrew Sullivan comments on the growing GOP Birther problem:
Many thought America could not elect a non-white president. They were wrong. It turns out America could elect a non-white president, but only with a hefty segment of the country denying his legitimacy.
If you haven’t done already, check out the video posted above. The alarming continuation of the birther myth is a symptom of a very troubled society breaking apart at the edges. Race is clearly the hidden agenda behind the movement – no President in history has been subjected to this type of nonsense, the only difference being the color of Obama’s skin.
The sad truth is that two nations exist within America. One is a sane, civilized, developed Western democracy, and the other a poor, uneducated, and disenfranchized society in desperate need of help.
