racism in a parallel universe

Looks like the birthers are set to have a convention of their own next month in Phoenix. Having been dubbed "Birtherpalooza" by Talking Points Memo, this sad exercise is, of course, the brainchild of the lunatic Sheriff of Maricopa County, Joe Arpaio.

Some of the best known birthers in the nation are scheduled to take the stage at a star-studded event in Phoenix, where they plan to call for Congress to investigate whether President Obama’s birth certificate is real.

As Atrios reminds us today, "this birther stuff is rooted in racism. The end."
