I haven't really posted on the current insanity that is the Birther movement, those who insist that President Obama wasn't born in the United States, despite plenty of evidence that proves otherwise.
Why hadn't I posted on it? Sure, there are reasons like the fact that I'm lazy, distracted and busy, all in one. But Eugene Robinson flat out nails it here:
Trying to analyze the "birther" phenomenon would mean taking it seriously, and taking it seriously would be like arguing about the color of unicorns. About all that can be said is that a bunch of lost, confused and frightened people have decided to seek refuge in conspiratorial make-believe. I hope they're harmless. And I hope they seek help.
