White House Releases President Obama's Birth Certificate [UPDATE]

By Chuck Sudo in News on Apr 27, 2011 1:30PM

The White House released the long form of President Obama's birth certificate today. One would hope that this move would finally get those who believe Obama is some sort of Manchurian Candidate to finally STFU about if he was born in the United States. But we doubt it and already imagine the cries of "Why did he wait so long?" coming from the conspiracy theorists right now. If Obama meets with Franklin Graham to prove how Christian he is, we're just going to give up on the country.

[UPDATE] - And it begins. Fake Presidential candidate, reality television personality, pitchman and real estate mogul Donald Trump is claiming responsibility for the President's decision, but questions why he waited so long and suggested the birth certificate be inspected to ensure its authenticity.
