That President Barack Hussein Obama, what a tease! He strings the lunatics along toying with them for two-and-a-half years, and then just when they’re whipped into a frenzy, he releases his birth certificate. LOL! I was going to draw the Donald (the “carnival barker” Obama called him) in this cartoon, but decided that it’s hard to tell what Trump truly believes. He’ll do and say anything to get attention. He’s gotten enough on this issue, and he’ll get no more from me, but I’ll draw him again in the future if he warrants it. Love that thin straw hair and pucker-mouth.
I’m sure that this whole sorry episode was the Obama Administration’s way of having fun with the racists and nut cases. When this birther thing started, I’m sure a wise ass like Rahm Emanuel suggested they string along the fruitcakes just see how far they could take it. The Obamanistas probably finally got bored with the whole thing and decided to release the document. I’m just guessing because that’s what I would do.
This period in political history will go down as some of the most bizarre ever. I’m astounded daily by how irrelevant the conservatives are becoming and the excesses the welcoming Republican Party allows in their name. Who’s coming in next from the right wing fringe? Oh, right. Ron Paul.
