Yesterday, the Obama administration decided enough is enough. They posted the "long form" birth certificate and sure enough, it seems the president was born in the USA.
So this morning on Morning Joe (MSNBC), the pundits are criticizing Obama for addressing the situation at all-- that he shouldn't be dignifying the topic with his attention.
It reminded me of a joke I heard Jesse Jackson tell years ago:
The Pope and Jackson are in a boat on a lake. The press corps is in a boat next to them. The Pope's beanie flies off in the wind and Jesse gets out of the boat and walks on water to retrieve it. The next day, the headlines read, "Jesse can't swim."
