Here's an entertaining piece of crackpottery from Infowars
-- the Ghanaian newspaper, Daily Graphic
, wrote this about Obama's trip to the country:"For Ghana, Obama's visit will be another milestone in African history as it hosts the first-ever African-American President on his presidential visit to the continent of his birth."
Aha! A "slip-up," the Infowars writer exclaims. An obscure Ghanaian
paper digs up the truth! The story of the century! The most significant revelation of any American presidency!
According to Infowars: "This invalidates the legitimacy of Barack Obama's presidency if, as a growing number of people believe, he was in fact born in Kenya and not Hawaii as he claims."
An ingenious jump in logic, characteristic of the birther movement. If a birth certificate is produced, it's been forged. If birth announcements in Hawaiian newspapers are produced, they've been faked. And the Daily Graphic
gets a hold of the biggest story it has ever encountered. And, instead of running it in the lede, the paper decides instead to bury it in the fourth paragraph. The sitting American president isn't technically a citizen. No biggie.
By the way, Daily Graphic
has since corrected the error.
