Because it's not like the President asked us to stop talking about this or anything...
After President Obama released his birth certificate to quell any questions surrounding the place of his birth, the blogs are still of course talking about the birther controversy. Even Oprah asked the President about it on Wednesday during an interview.
TMZ found the widow of the doctor who delivered a newborn Barack Obama back in 1961. According to the site, “She claims she had NO CLUE her late husband brought the future President into the world -- IN HAWAII -- until she saw the President’s birth certificate this morning. TMZ spoke to Ivalee Sinclair -- the wife of Dr. David A. Sinclair -- who said she was SHOCKED to see her husband's signature on Obama's birth certificate ... and now, even though Dr. Sinclair passed away in 2003, the entire family is CELEBRATING.
Meanwhile, some are still in doubt even after seeing the long-form birth certificate. Wonkette kindly enough gathered some of the most outrageous new conspiracy theories circulating on the web. Example, “All three signatures on Obama’s birth certificate were signed with the same rollerball pen. By the way, rollerball pens weren’t invented until the 1980s."
And lastly, the New Yorker’s Hendrik Hertzberg is asking about the comic timing of the birth certificates release. Could this just be a setup for his appearance at the White House Correspondents dinner this weekend?
