Usefully Dealing With Birtherism

It’s really cool of The Donald to go all high dudgeon about the birther nonsense this late in the presidential term. Dealing with it in a useful way, in contrast, is Arizona, whose ‘fool us once’ measure goes to the Senate.

As with checking for valid ID at a polling place, checking for valid eligibility of people getting on the ballot is one of those common sense measures. It’s a good litmus test for idiots, too: why would anybody oppose this with wholesome motivation? Seriously, such could exist, but it’s hard to imagine what they would be.
