Washington Post names names–and a question

The Washington Post sticks its neck out a bit to publish in its “44” blog a post entitled “Lawmakers and the ‘birther/Muslim’ myths”:

We’ve collected a list of lawmakers whose comments have helped fuel the debate. Most either said outright that the president is a Muslim, that he is not a U.S. citizen or appeared to leave open the possibility that either falsehood could be true.

One question I have on the “birther” stuff: if Obama’s father had been a white Kenyan instead of a black Kenyan, would ANYONE think that he was born in Kenya instead of Hawaii?

Ken

American lawyer who took leave from career and moved family to Nairobi for a year to "help" with democratic development. After stolen '07 election in Kenya and violent aftermath have tried to bring out truth of events for those who care in hope we can improve.

What do you think?
