Stupidity: The Ultimate Power Source

If you can believe it—and I do—there are apparently conservatives out there still fervently clinging to the underground myth that Barack Obama was not born in the United States, and is therefore ineligible to be president.

But as Chris Kofinis pointed out on MSNBC this evening, there are also those who passionately believe that the Apollo moon landings which occurred 40 years ago were staged by NASA on a Hollywood set, so what does that tell you?

(Hint: People can convince themselves to be as dumb as they want to be.)

Anyhow, click here for a Delaware woman badgering her state representative Mike Castle (R) why he hasn’t taken a stand against Obama’s forged birth certificate. Notice how she’s waving a little US flag while speaking, and adds that her father fought in WWII – as if either had any connection whatsoever to her argument. Also, note how when Mr. Castle responds to this lady that Obama is indeed a US citizen how the crowd turns on him.
