Slog Tipper Joe wants us to take a look at what Republicans are doing in Arizona:

Nearly half of the Arizona Legislature wants to force President Barack Obama to show his birth certificate to state officials if he runs for re-election.

A state House committee on Tuesday approved the measure sponsored by 40 of the state's 90 legislators. It would require presidential candidates who want to appear on the ballot in Arizona to submit documents proving they meet the requirements to be president

You know, I wish that we lived in a parallel universe where politicians had spines; I'd love to see all the serious presidential candidates (or at least the Democrats) in the future refuse to show their birth certificates and, therefore, forfeit the Arizona primary. Allowing your state to be swallowed up in this weird, pointless racist bullshit when unemployment is so high should be a crime.
