Of course the crazies won’t be placated, but: Hawaii officials have reconfirmed the veracity of President Obama's birth certificate. The official who examined the document made a terse statement (he probably had better things to do), saying, "I ... have seen the original vital records maintained on file ... Barack Hussein Obama was born in Hawaii and is a natural-born American citizen." He then added, "I have nothing further to add to this statement or my original statement issued in October 2008 over eight months ago." It is worth noting that Hawaii law prohibits the release of a birth certificate "to anyone who does not have a tangible interest," according to the Associated Press. Will this story please go away?
