A good day for the birthers

The movement, with yet another confirmation of its size in our poll today, gets its cause celebre Lt. Col. Terry Lakin on CNN, where he'll talk about his case on Anderson Cooper 360. (Thanks to the rampaging news cycle, he will only appear at 10 p.m.) The American Patriot Foundation informs us that since Lakin started publicizing his case, the organization "has received generous donations from more than 1,200 separate individuals," which is sort of the point. And TPM reports that Carl Swensson, the leader of the deeply confused "American Grand Jury" wing of the birther movement, has been questioned by the FBI -- cred that he'll be using until the end of time.
