Those Republican state lawmakers who are demanding Barack Obama's birth certificate are striking back at their critics. Calling such moves "embarrassing," Rep. Larry Miller, a Democrat from Memphis, said of the Republicans, "they continue to make us the joke of the nation." To which Rep. Frank Niceley retorts: "If I was from Memphis I wouldn't be calling anyone joke of the nation. Would you?" As comebacks go, it's a little lame, but there you have it.

Niceley is one of the signatories to the crackpot legal action questioning the president's natural born citizenship. Our elected conspiracy theorists also include the House GOP caucus chair, Glen Casada. He says he doesn't doubt Obama's citizenship. He just thinks the president ought to have to prove it to the satisfaction of every nutjob on the far right.

"I know he's got it (birth certificate)," Casada says. "I know he's an American citizen, but let's just get this thing out there and let's put everybody's mind at ease."
