Michigan State Sen. Tom Casperson (R) Goes Birther

Sen. Tom Casperson
Joining the ranks of such "esteemed" individuals as Orly Taitz and Donald Trump, Michigan state Sen. Tom Casperson (R-Escanaba) recently came out as being an Obama birther. While speaking on Michael Patrick Shiels’ Lansing radio program Tuesday, Casperson began his journey into the right fringe.

According to multiple media sources, he "just plum doesn’t know where Obama was born."

"Based on everything everybody's saying, I don't know because it seems like that issue was dropped immediately as far as major media went," Casperson said. "My gut tells me if had been a different president, like say George W. Bush, they'd have been digging into that like there was no tomorrow and trying to get to the bottom of it, which they really never did try to get to the bottom of, so it became a conspiracy theory and no big deal."

Despite insurmountable evidence proving President Obama was actually born in Hawaii, Republicans seem to think the scary non-white President with the foreign-sounding middle name just can't be American. It has to be a national - dare I say, even a global - conspiracy! Here's the video of Casperson's career taking a turn for the worse:
