Well, when you have people like Bill O'Reilly, Ann Coulter, and Michael Steele rejecting the birthers, it's pretty clear that the birthers are nuts. While they will continue, the fact that even some of the Republican leadership loonies are calling them names, so it's pretty clear that the birthers have suffered a humiliating defeat and now belong in the ranks of those who believe in Area 51, that the moon landing was a fake, or that the CIA orchestrated 9/11. Of course, you can't convince birthers since they are caught in their own rattrap of lies and distortions supported by their seething hatred of Obama, but it's good to see that this nonsense has been relegated to bizarro land.

Even Ann Coulter, who normally can't resist the opportunity to attack Democrats as evil and un-American, calls the Birthers "cranks." ... Chairman Steele believes that this is an unnecessary distraction and believes that the president is a U.S. citizen.
