Reasonable people have long regarded the birthers as political retards. And, that being said, I'm pretty sure there is no cure for retardation so I doubt this will have any effect on their line of thought.
What I am surprised about is how many retards there actually are. I figured 11-12%. You know, the Becksters, Limbaughnauts, Palinites. I was surprised to learn that there are a lot more stupid walking around out there than we realized.
USA TODAY/Gallup Poll released Monday showed the issue gaining surprising traction, given that investigations by news outlets and non-partisan organizations consistently concluded there was no question about Obama's place of birth. In the poll, taken last week, only 38% of Americans said they thought the president was "definitely" born in the United States; 18% said he "probably" was.
Nearly one in four, 24%, said he was probably or definitely born in another country.
