The Death Of A Dream

Abby Zimet

Obama, of course, has released his purported "birth certificate." But birthers, a determined lot, aren't buying it. They are, however, buying Jerome 'Swift Boat' Corsi's book, which "demonstrates conclusively that no legal authority has ever verified Obama’s legal eligibility to be president," thus making it #6 on the New York Times Bestsellers List, causing it, in the words of World Net PR hacks, to go "flying off the shelves." These are the true, strong, Give Me Bizarro Irrelevant Conspiracy Theories Or Give Me Death birthers. Others less stalwart, though, have given in to their despair. Funny Or Die visited them in their darkest hour. Not a pretty sight.
