Blackburn Dons Clown Shoes, Joins the Obama Birther Cause

Rep. Marsha Blackburn believes President Obama was "legitimately elected" and "meets the qualifications to hold office," her flack says. But she's signed onto legislation to require future presidential candidates to show their birth certificates to establish they meet the Constitutional requirements to serve. Why not? Blackburn's spokesman Claude H. Chafin defends his boss for her commonsense decision to align herself with tin-hatters, far-right frothers and paranoid kooks of all persuasions all over America. Says Chafin:
"Most Americans are probably surprised that they don't" have to document meeting the requirement. "A lot of people expressed surprise to her since (last year's presidential campaign) that people don't have to actually document anything."
But Rhodes College political science professor Marcus Pohlmann says that by raising the issue, "she certainly is painting herself into the far right corner. Normally you don't propose a solution unless there's a problem; so what's the problem?...It seems an odd one to pull out of the blue in a preemptive way." Um, professor, Blackburn lives in the far-right corner. She never comes out of there. Did you see what she said about cow farts?
