“ I don't know that I'd say the birthers are back -- they never left, having maintained a low roar over the past 3 years, peaking under the leadership of Donald Trump (and suffering his ignominious loss of popularity after the President's long form was released).
What's exciting right now is the unprecedented opportunity birthers have to get lawsuits heard by courts. By way of background, the birthers really didn't have their act together before the last election when they might have made some timely challenges to a candidate in court. As a result all the so-called "birther lawsuits" were dismissed for lack of subject matter jurisdiction or because they were moot once Obama took office.
This time around they've had their arguments heard: in Virginia, New Hampshire, Illinois and most recently in Georgia. They've lost, of course. Now, instead of the courts telling them they have no standing, the courts are saying that they have no probative evidence, and their presidential edibility theory is plain wrong.
My feeling is that the Article II Super PAC is not a force that will have any effect, any more than the bevy of birther web sites waving American patriotic symbols has. Kerchner's been running those Washington Times ads for years. ”
