Arizona birther law gaining traction

Birthers, states rights fans, people who hate Pres. Obama and mainstream Republican leaders accustomed to waffling on birther questions will now be watching the Arizona legislature, where Republican lawmakers are again taking action to address a problem they see as inadequately addressed by the federal government. State Rep. Judy Burges introduced a bill last week requiring presidential candidates to submit an "original long-form birth certificate" in order to appear on the state ballot. For 2012, the bill would perhaps rule out the current President of the United States, and it would definitely rule out Panama military-base-born 2008 GOP presidential nominee Arizona Sen. John McCain and all of the many other natural-born American citizens (like me) who don't possess a long-form original birth certificate.
