    No, to establish his standing Jesus had to perform miracles. What will you guys do if the economy makes a miraculous recovery? (besides take credit of course).

    About the 58% of republicans. Apparently a poll found that 28% believed he was born outside the US and 30% did not know.

    That’s a lot of people not checking facts. (I know that it goes both ways, that liberals don’t always check facts either), but this is sad.

    Hey, Baslim the Beggar:

    28% think he was born outside +30% don’t know = 58%. Do the math.

    jnik23260: Gee, ya think so!

    Try to read more carefully.

    I was breaking it down for folks, not disagreeing with the total!!

    It matters that 28% disbelieve (and are being led to disbelieve) and that 30% simply cannot take time to check,,, and are therefore potential marks for this swindle.

    As a proud conservative (fiscal not moral) and GOP member, I’d like to say… these people are crazy and sickening. We aren’t all like that.

    I’ve also been reading that some 50% of Americans can’t name the three branches of government, and some even higher percentage can’t name their representative nor their senators! (And of course, according to Dilbert, 87.5% of statistics are made up!)

    OK Gary We got it. Republicans bad. Democrats good. This whole “brotherhood” series has been boring

    Does anybody know what the odds are of becoming the president of the United States of America?! geez!!!

    About 100% in Obama’s case.

    I believe Trudeau wants to keep it funny, but he’s having a VERY hard time creating political satire that’s weirder than reality.

    “CogentModality”, show me a casino which accepts bets AFTER the dice are rolled, and your comment might have some poignancy.

    Ralph Reed could probably point out a couple to you, Al.

    Let’s say, that ignoring all logic, the entire resources of the Republican party and the Democratic Party, McCain and Clinton, were taken in by this conspiracy to put an intelligent black man in the White House.

    Let’s say Obama were ousted from office.

    What is it the birthers want as a result?

    President Biden?

    President Pelosi?

    I’m just curious. I’d heard the core of the birthers were Palin supporters. How many other frauds would they have to pull off to get that to happen.

    Edcoyote I find the thought of Biden as president rather humorous

    And the ones who are posting around the net that since they lost at the ballot box, they were going to appeal to the “bullet box” soon.

    Just remember. There will ALWAYS be people that use a philosophy or religion to excuse their behavior no matter WHAT. All sides. It’s not the political STRIPE we tend to disagree with, it’s the CHARACTER of the person.
