Romney's 'birther' line is no jokeFor the love of God. Romney's quip, which drew a mild chuckle from all of America outside of Manhattan and Los Angeles (and the fever swamp that is Donna Brazille's brainpan), "touched off a firestorm of protest"? Really?

(CNN) -- "No one's ever asked to see my birth certificate. They know that this is the place that I was born and raised."
With that comment to a crowd in Michigan, Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney officially embraced the "birther" movement and touched off a firestorm of protest across the airwaves and internet.
Of course, those protesting didn't include his live audience or the extremists on the right. Nor, given Romney's embrace of Donald Trump, should we be surprised by this joke-that's-not-a-joke. Ari Melber of The Nation put it succinctly: "Jokes can be more revealing than talking points." [link]
I'd say you need to take your meds, sweetheart. Now. And get a life.
A by-golly firestorm! That's even funnier than Romney's wisecrack.
By the way, where was Obama really born? The world wants to know.
* A friendly note from one pundit to another: If you're going to make a case that all of America erupted in a firestorm of indignation, don't quote a columnist for a far-left commie rag to make the case. It just ain't gonna fly.
