Breaking News: Birthers are Stupid

Today President Obama released his long form birth certificate. I'm wondering how Fox is going to spin this?

Are they going to use this as an example of how he refuses to compromise?

Are they going talk about his abuse of powers by making the Hawaiian Health Dept release a document they don't normally give out?

Will use the logical fallacy of “Argumentum ad Numerum” and show polls that show 150% of respondents believe that Obama wasn't born in this country. Because so many people believe it, it must be true. Just like 17 quadrillion flies like poop so it must be tasty.

Will they claim that the shadows on the birth certificate aren't parallel so it must have been filmed at a secret sound stage at Area 51? Just because this myth has been debunked doesn't stop them from repeating it.

If all else fails they can go to their old stand by and say by releasing his birth certificate this year, Obama caused the recession, deficit, Iraq war, the Pleistocene extinctions, and Katrina.

As hard as I try I know that somehow Fox News is going to come up with something even sillier than I can think up.

From the very beginning, this was the stupidest "controversy" ever. It's a sad reflection on our nation's intelligence as a whole that anyone wasted more than a couple seconds worrying about it, let alone thinking it's a real issue.

I'm not sure it was THE stupidest, the moon hoax people still have my vote on that. However the moon hoax was never taken seriously by any media outside Fox. So it does reflect badly on the real news that it received airtime beyond Fox.
