Steve King: 'There's one [birth certificate] in this country we haven't seen'

I've asked King's office exactly what he meant here, but it's hard to tell what this is if not a joke about "birtherism." What's the "one" birth certificate he hasn't seen?

Honolulu city clerk debunks new 'birther' theory

The internal contradictions of Adams' story haven't stopped him from expanding his media presence this week, most recently with a local TV interview in which he repeated his claims (some of them based on popular "birther" rumors from the web) while, confusingly, stating that he didn't think Obama's eligibility was an issue.

The last Orly Taitz post ever

Yes, it's slightly disturbing that even 26% of a party's electorate would vote for Taitz. And it will continue to be news if elected Republicans jump on board with the birther quest, whether led by her or by someone else. But let's stop talking to her and stop indulging her.

Plenty of hype, but a bad night for Orly Taitz and other birthers

Still, there was a less colorful defeat for believers in that conspiracy over in South Dakota. Chris Nelson, the GOP secretary of state, had speculated that Obama's citizenship might be a scam. He watched a huge early advantage crumble and lost handily to first-time candidate Kristi Noem.

Another view on Taitz's prospects

The quick take -- this is an impossible election to predict. Taitz could win in a squeaker. She could lose by 90 points. We don't know, which is why California Republicans will spend the next eight hours idly wishing they'd raised Damon Dunn's profile a bit and made Taitz a non-factor.

Obama records denied in birther trial

After the jump you'll find a memo from Lt. Col. Daniel Driscoll, the investigating officer in Lakin's court martial, which shreds Lakin's argument that Obama's records must be produced for this case.
