State of Hawaii Aborts “Birthers”

This week the State of Hawaii aborted the “Birther” movement. Ouch! Republican (yes, we said “Republican) Governor Linda Lingle signed legislation into law that allows state agencies to ignore repeated requests to view government records, including President Barack Obama’s birth document. The law will impact requests from a fringe movement dubbed the “Birthers.” They question President Obama’s constitutional eligibility to be commander-in-chief, suggesting he was not born in the United States despite proof that he was born in Hawaii in 1961. Hawaii has released a copy of the president’s birth certificate – officially called a “certificate of live birth” – and the hospital took out ads in two Hawaiian newspapers in 1961 announcing the birth.

Hawaii Director of Health Chiyome L. Fukino said her office receives about 50 emails a month requesting access to the president’s birth certificate.  Fukino cited a small group of individuals “who engage in a pattern of repeated requests” in a transcript of her testimony according to CNN. “We believe having to respond repeatedly to essentially the same request or a variation of the request all centering on whether or not President Obama was born in Hawaii is a frivolous use of department time and resources.”

Governor Lingle said the birth certificate issue…

… is simply a distraction from the more critical issues that are facing the country. And so I had my health director, who is a physician by background, go personally view the birth certificate in the birth records of the Department of Health. … the president was in fact born at Kapi’olani Hospital in Honolulu, Hawaii. And that’s just a fact. And yet people continue to call up and email and want to make it an issue. And I think it’s, again, a horrible distraction for the country by those people who continue this.

Now that the “Birthers” have been slapped down by a Republican, will they shut up and go away? Don’t count on it. These lunatics on the fringe will continue to be encouraged by celebrity “Birthers” Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann. Additionally, Fox News hosts such as Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity, as well as frequent guests Ann “The Man” Coulter and Michelle “Anchor Baby” Malkin will also continue to beat the “Birther” drum. Those particular politicians and that alleged news organization have no qualms about continuing to spread debunked lies. Remember those pesky “death panels”? ‘Nuff said.

Please remember to click on the song link (or in this case, the funny video-clip) below to familiarize yourselves with the tune and to have more fun singing along with today’s topical song parody.

Birthday video-clip:

BIRTHERS

(sung to the Beatles song “Birthday”)

They deny his birthplace
Hawaii says “screw ye!”
Racists in the first place
“Stop wasting all of our time”
“We’ve confirmed his birthplace”
Birthers don’t have a clue

Birthers are a part of the Tea Party
They are dumber than Laurel and Hardy
Birthers are a part of the Tea Party

They have all had a chance – Birthers
At a certificate glance – Birthers
Too dumb to zip up their pants – Birthers
Rants!!!

(musical interlude)

Less grey matter than plants – Birthers
Repeating racist rants – Birthers
Too dumb to zip up their pants – Birthers
Rants!!!

They deny his birthplace
Hawaii says “screw ye!”
Racists in the first place
“Stop wasting all of our time”
“We’ve confirmed his birthplace”
Birthers don’t have a clue

  1. OMG, thanks for brightening up a rather gloomy day here north of Boston. ‘too dumb to zip up there pants’ hahaha…

    Go Bruins!

    • To be honest, I feel the Bruins may be overmatched against the Flyers as the result of the injuries to Sturm and Krejci. Moreover, even if they somehow win this game7, I think they will be squashed by the momentum rolling Montreal Canadiens.

      I will however, keep my fingers crossed and watch while sporting a Bruins sweater.

  2. *their* / hate when I do that!

  3. Birth pangs

    Having to respond repeatedly to essentially the same request sounds a lot like Chinese torture, which is fine and dandy with “real” American patriots, except not so much for the Chinese part.

    Speaking of which, those Hawaiians sure look pretty dang foreign themselves! Ms Fukino should consider herself lucky that Fox’s Rupert Murdoch hasn’t asked to see her papers-he’s Australian but he has a nice American name!

  4. Well done! Love the title, picture and the song. Cracked up on the “GOP-Lunatic Fringe Production” and the zipping pants lyric.

    (Good luck to your hockey team, but aren’t you happy about the Celtics?)

    • Oh yes, VERY happy about the Celtics! I agree with lynnrockets about the Bruins, but really hope they don’t choke after the 3-0 lead.
