In today's dispatches. we're still seeing the birtherstani try to find their fall-back positions. The de Vattelist "two citizen parents" claim is the top favourite, though some are also mixing in the Indonesian Citizenship myth for added spice.
Then you have the people that have been prepared since 2009 to call the long form a forgery and they will have their moment in the sun, darn it all!
The State of Hawaii Department of Health has posted the document chain as well has links to the long form on their site, which should show even the terminally stupid that they consider the document legitimate. We have some added studies of racism among the birtherstani, with Dr. Kate providing additional samples and examples on her blog.
James Manning tries to explain away the long form. Berg is trying to attract the faithful (and their money) back to him. Sen. Rand Paul makes fun of fellow tribble wearer Donald Trump. And The Pest and eFail has shown that no amount of evidence or reality will sway them from their 3-minute hate of Obama.
27 April - The State of Hawaii Department of Health issues their own statement about the long form.
"The Hawai'i State Health Department recently complied with a request by President Barack Obama for certified copies of his original Certificate of Live Birth, which is sometimes referred to in the media as a “long form” birth certificate.
“We hope that issuing certified copies of the original Certificate of Live Birth to President Obama will end the numerous inquiries related to his birth in Hawai'i,” Hawai'i Health Director Loretta Fuddy said. “I have seen the original records filed at the Department of Health and attest to the authenticity of the certified copies the department provided to the President that further prove the fact that he was born in Hawai'i.”
On April 25, 2011, pursuant to President Obama‟s request, Director Fuddy personally witnessed the copying of the original Certificate of Live Birth and attested to the authenticity of the two copies. Dr. Alvin Onaka, the State Registrar, certified the copies.
So, unless the birthers want to claim that the State of Hawaii forged the document (which honestly, is likely), we have a further piece in the chain of evidence showing it's legit.
Oh, and the State of Hawaii Department of Health has added links to the long form at this state website here
