Conflict at Fox over Birtherism

Glenn Beck comments on the new passport form, which may go into effect for people who don’t have birth certificates:

Why don’t you just put nipple clamps on Americans over this?

Actually, the proposed “biographical form” is intended for those people who are unable to provide the usual proof of citizenship required for a US passport – namely, a birth certificate, consular report of birth abroad or naturalization certificate. Glenn, do you see anything about “certificate of live birth” on there? Nooooo. Glenn, can’t you see this is an effort on your side’s part to corral Obama? To catch him and prove he is not a US citizen? And as your compatriot Monica Crowley points out the birther movement has traction because, well, Obama does “un-American” things that give the impression he is not “one of us.”
