• Nearly Half of Republicans Believe Obama Was Born in Another Country

    It seems like we get a different version of this same poll every couple weeks, but it never ceases to amaze me. It truly is a testament to the American spirit of diehard individualism.

    And, by "diehard individualism," I mean comically arrogant ignorance of reality

    Among all Republicans, 45 percent believe he was born in another country, as do 45 percent of Tea Party supporters, the poll shows

    While 25 percent of all Americans in this new poll say Mr. Obama was born outside the U.S., 57 percent correctly said he was born in the United States. Another 18 percent said they did not know where he was born. Among Republicans, 33 percent said Mr. Obama was born in the U.S., and 22 percent said they did not know. Thirty-four percent of Tea Party supporters said the president was born in the U.S., while 21 percent said they didn't know.

    I can't wait to see who these people decide is the best person to run the country.

    I'm sure they'll come up with somebody good.
