I love how the birthers keep finding new fodder for nonsense. THERE'S NO BIRTH CERTIFICATE. Oh, there is? Well, now we need EVIDENCE REGARDING THE CHAIN OF CUSTODY OF ALL BIRTH RECORDS INCLUDING PAPER MIROFILM AND ELECTRONIC RECORDS EVER SINCE 1961. What could the next level of crazy be?

"The issue of President Obama's birth certificate won't go away, so Obama's re-election team decided to have a little fun with it.
As an Arizona sheriff held a news conference claiming evidence that the birth certificate released in April is a fake, Obama campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt tweeted out what he called a 'live feed' of the presentation -- which turned out to be a clip of the theme song from the old science fiction series The X Files.
LaBolt also told Twitter followers 'birth certificate available here' -- and linked to an ad for an Obama coffee mug with the birth certificate emblazoned it."

Can I ask a really stupid question? I just watched video two and they were talking about how different parts of the document was contained in different "layers" which they could turn on and off. Why is this? I thought the document they put up was just a JPEG, and they don't have layers, do they? And if not, why would those "layers" show up? Is it that the scanning software is dividing up the image into different parts or something?
It's my understanding that the president can't be arrested while in office.
Re: presidential protections from arrest. Senators and Representatives may only be arrested on charges of "treason, felony or breach of the peace" per the Constitution
But that may not have been the state of affairs in 1961 (and finding deprecated bits of the US Code online is hard, in my experience).
The full video is here: We will be posting a slightly higher quality video that will be more watchable/faster as soon as it is posted.
Faced with being truly, genuinely laughed at, mocked, and considered a trifling bit of comedy will make anyone wither and shut the fuck up and go the fuck away.
Ironic mustaches aren't evil.
