Unfortunately, calling them nuts is being kind to them. I don't think they are nuts. These people, for the most part, appear to be functioning adults.

They are not nuts, they are simply racist bigots who cannot tolerate the fact that a person of color, someone not like themselves, is the President of the United States.

The "he was not born here" is just another way to say, "he is not one of us".

It's just really, really sad, but hopefully, it is exposing the race-baiting tactics the Republican party has used in one form or another for the last 40 years.

As the defacto head (maybe in competition with Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Back) of the extreme right wing of the Republican Party, I think someone should ask Sarah Palin to comment on the "Birthers".

That might be an interesting response.
