Deep Thought

In 2003, Arnold Schwarzenegger was a leading prez candidate to be. Back then many GOPers wanted to change the constitution for him so the Austrian-born steriod-using-weightlifter-turned-action-movie-actor could run for president. In 2009, a majority of Republicans are birthers.

Um, no. It's only 26%. And mostly from the south. That says something about the south - I'm not sure what, though.

To me a "not sure" is really supporter of the "birther movement" yet knowns it sounds crazy. So I add 28 to 30 and get 58.

The birther movement is a joke. Republicans are making it so embarrassing to be a part of the Right, that some of us are starting to look elsewhere. I don't think I've respected a major move made by a republican since halfway through the election.
