‘Where’s the Birth Certificate’ becomes ‘Why would Obama publicly mock man asking’

barackobama.com has just done for author Jerome Corsi what Corsi did for John Kerry. Obama’s campaign skyrocketed Corsi to immediate and certain fame.
“Let me introduce you to Jerome Corsi”, Julianna Smoot, Deputy Campaign Manager, Obama for America wrote today in an email, subject line of which was “You’ll like this one.”
Stating that FactCheck.org called Corsi’s work “a mishmash of unsupported conjecture, half-truths, logical fallacies and outright falsehoods,” Smoot added that “There’s really no way to make this stuff completely go away. The only thing we can do is laugh at it—and make sure as many other people as possible are in on the joke.”
Smoot calls the longtime controversy over President Barack Obama’s eligibility “stuff”. Average people wondering why Obama didn’t release his “birth certificate” some two and a half years after the controversy began call it “foul play” and an “outrage”.
States Smoot: “Last year, the President said, “I can’t spend all of my time with my birth certificate plastered on my forehead.”
So instead they plastered the back of a “Made in the USA” coffee mug with the said birth certificate, advising people if a coffee cup’s not your style, T shirts are available too.
“If the facts can’t make these ridiculous smears go away, we can at least have a little fun with it.”
Marxists liking to mock their enemies is no guarantee folk will buy Obama’s silly coffee mugs. There are too many out there worried they won’t be able to come up with the scratch for the coffee to pour into them.
Wonder if Obama and company will find the way to mock those dissenters?
Readers will remember that Corsi made Kerry famous for having served in Nam.
Writing in American Thinker, Jack Cashill makes a strong stand for the Corsi book.
“Unlike every other candidate in modern presidential history, Obama did not choose to share any of his essential documents, and the media happily obliged him. As Corsi details, Obama has shielded those records involved with his adoption, his kindergarten, Punahou School, Occidental College, his passport and travel, Columbia University (including his senior thesis), Harvard Law School, his medical history, his Chicago law practice, his State senate career, as well as his SAT and LSAT scores, and, until recently, his very birth certificate.”
If the money pours into this tacky 2012 barackobama.com latest shill for money, there may be a whole series of coffee mugs for sale online covering all of the above.
(Collect the entire set, folks, if you still have the money.)
Meanwhile, the big question “Where’s the Birth Certificate?” just got replaced with “Why would the President of the USA publicly mock the man who asked?” on a coffee mug?
Editor’s Note: The Esquire Magazine article originally referenced is satire.

Let me introduce you to Jerome Corsi.
This week he released a new book that the publisher says will be a bestseller “of historic proportions.”
The title is “Where’s the Birth Certificate?”—yes, really.
Corsi’s work is a greatest-hits reel of delusions, ranging from 9/11 conspiracies to claiming that there is an infinite supply of oil in the Earth’s core. In 2008, he published a book about Barack Obama claiming, among other things, that he (a) is a secret Muslim; (b) is secretly anti-military; (c) secretly dealt drugs; and (d) secretly supported terrorist actions when he was eight years old. So many secrets!
FactCheck.org called Corsi’s work “a mishmash of unsupported conjecture, half-truths, logical fallacies and outright falsehoods.”
There’s really no way to make this stuff completely go away. The only thing we can do is laugh at it—and make sure as many other people as possible are in on the joke.
So let’s just do this—get your Obama birth certificate mug here:
Last year, the President said, “I can’t spend all of my time with my birth certificate plastered on my forehead.”
This is about as close as we can get.
If the facts can’t make these ridiculous smears go away, we can at least have a little fun with it.
And then we’ll get back to the important work of supporting the President as he tackles real problems like high gas prices, the deficit, and unemployment.
