Congressional Cowardice

Republican Congressional cowardice, that is, though of course there’s plenty of both. The video above was made by Mike Stark, under the auspices of firedoglake, where it appeared today in a post by Jane Hamsher.

We know there are plenty of crazy people out there, some of whom are hung up on the idea that President Obama was born in Kenya, not Hawaii. And we know that those people hung up on the idea that President Obama was born in Kenya, not Hawaii, form a disproportionately large percentage of the so-called Republican base. But they’re crazy. Why must Republican members of Congress be respectful of this craziness?

Some members of Congress may themselves be a blend of crazy, stupid, and ignorant. But let’s assume they’re not. Then the ones who won’t come out and say Obama’s birthplace is a non-issue must simply be cowards.
