Do you know a Birther? Here's a way maybe to talk to them.

A Birther asks on NYC's RnR page:

Why all the mystery? Why doesn't the State of Hawaii order its Department of Health to allow a public vieiwing of Obama's original birth certificate or registry of birth? They are only creating doubts by evading public scrutiny. If his birth on American soil is not in question, perhaps they are trying to conceal something else such as a different paternity. Don't Americans who elected him have a right to know for sure?

A New Yorker responds:

I have a family member who suffers from bi-polar disorder. During one of her psychotic phases, she kept insisting her next door neighbor had killed people and had stashed the bodies in his utility shed. I called her shrink and asked him if it would be okay if I proved to the patient her delusions were in fact delusions. The shrink said go ahead, but that her delusion would merely transform to some new related delusion. I made contact with her neighbor, told him the problem -- he was very understanding -- and I took the patient for a tour of the utility shed. We looked through bags of straw and fertilizer and behind the riding mower. No dead people. Later I asked the patient if she now understood the neighbor had not killed anyone. She said her neighbor had not kept the dead bodies in his utility shed, but had in fact buried them in the nearby park. Do you see where I'm going with this?
