Born Again

Yet another example (via Memeorandum) of the lunacy that has overcome the Right in this election cycle. Arizona's Secretary of State, who denies being a birther is talking about keeping a sitting president off of the November ballot:
“I’m not a birther. I believe the president was born in Hawaii — or at least I hope he was,” Bennett said on the show. “But my responsibility as secretary of state is to make sure the ballots in Arizona are correct and that those people whose names are on the ballot have met the qualifications for the office they are seeking.”
 One way to look at it is that these people are terrified that—in spite of the poor economy—the President is going to win the election.
