Stop the Birther Nonsense

I hadn’t realized that some folks are still peddling the Obama birther nonsense. I agree entirely with this NRO house editorial from Wednesday, which concludes:

And as Sheriff Arpaio settles comfortably into that political mental ward, the same must be said of those Republicans who choose to associate themselves with him more broadly. Those who cannot distinguish between the birthers’ flim-flam and the critical questions that face our nation in 2012 will not win and do not deserve to.
