Please Don’t Feed the Crazies

The Crazies are having a field day.  The late Andrew Breitbart’s website discovered a promotional brochure from President Obama’s literary agency published in 1991 that says he was born in Kenya.  Apparently, this biographical detail remained unchanged until 2007.   As Rick Perry would say — Oops!  Of course, it became a huge Drudge headline.

The Breitbart people said they were publishing it not because they believe it’s true (they’ll leave that to the Birthers), but because it shows that Obama has changed the way he wants to present himself at different points in his life.  Of course, if you’re running for president, you’d damn well better present yourself as born in the United States.

One of the literary agents involved is describing it as a “fact-checking error,” but to the Birthers, it’s the Holy Grail.
