March Madness is breaking out everywhere.
No, not NCAA basketball. We're talking about a more enduring bit of political nonsense—the myth of President Obama's birth.
Republicans love this idea, since it is a way to explain the president's supposed anti-American ideas. Since he was born in Kenya and schooled in all manner of radical foreign ideas, that explains why he's so, well, so anti-American. Why Obama's been fervently anti-colonialist and that's just horrible. (Oh wait, anti-colonialism is good.)
Now the irrepressible Donald ("The Hair") Trump has joined the birther club, showing that even he doesn't mind pandering to the wingnuts and conspiracy theorists.
The would-be presidential candidate is unlikely to make it through the GOP nomination process, but he has high name recognition and deep pockets—maybe. But Trump should know better than to play the birther card, which lowers his standing among actual thinking citizens in both parties.
