This is pretty awesome.
Wingnut WorldNet Daily is running a fundraising drive to “raise awareness” about Obama’s birth certificate:
Would you like to see more awareness of the serious questions about Barack Obama’s eligibility to serve as president of the United States? Are you frustrated by the lack of media coverage of this constitutional issue? How would you like to join in a campaign to generate public debate and discussion?
WND, the only news agency in the world that has relentlessly pounded the eligibility questions, is ready to up the ante — with your help.
Donations are being accepted to defray the costs of a national billboard campaign with the simple message: “Where’s the birth certificate?”
The idea is to make sure Obama cannot avoid this question any longer. He must be asked to produce it at every turn. Billboard space is currently being negotiated in Los Angeles, Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, Sacramento, San Francisco, New York-New Jersey, Des Moines, Seattle and other metro areas.
Putting aside the idiocy of the movement’s basis, but even their approach is wingnutty. If the idea is to pressure Obama and not give him a moment’s notice, why put up billboards in Des Moines and Seattle, when the man lives in Washington, DC? If you want him to see billboards, that would be the place to put them. Do the citizens of Des Moines have a special in with Obama? They can call him up and pressure him?
They’ve apparently raised 25,000 dollars, which sort of upset me, because I was hoping it would be more than that since every dollar spent on this is a dollar not spent doing something harmful, like funding Republicans in races.
*** Update ***
As DougJ notes in the comments, 99% of the country is going to have no clue what birth certificate they are even talking about.
