Birther bill introduced in Michigan’s state legislature
A state House lawmaker introduced legislation today that would require candidates for president to produce a certified copy of his or her birth certificate to be eligible to appear on the Michigan ballot.
Rep. Mike Callton, R-Nashville, said the legislation was aimed at “clarify(ing) a constitutional question that has arisen about a number of presidential candidates,” and not about allegations surrounding the birthplace of President Barack Obama.
“I did not introduce this bill to continue the birther debate,” referring to those who have questioned whether Obama was born in the U.S. and eligible to hold the office of president, Callton said in a statement.

Let’s not deal with Michigan’s 10.3% unemployment rate, or the $2 BILLION dollar budget deficit, or the 1.1 million people uninsured. Let’s deal with keeping women underfoot, or making it so babies can hunt, or this bullshit, they apparently think these are more important things to do.
Ladies and gentlemen, this is what the Republican Party has turned into: the Bullshit Party, and boy, are they going to dump a lot of it on the peasants while enriching their masters.
