Earthers and Afterbirthers

Two great parodies on our abysmal level of political discourse exemplified by the President of the United States having to release his long-form birth certificate.

This whole controversy seemed like it came directly from the Onion.  Now we have their take in Afterbirthers Demand To See Obama's Placenta:  "All we are asking is that the president produce a sample of his fetal membranes and vessels—preferably along with a photo of the crowning and delivery—and this will all be over," said former presidential candidate and Afterbirthers spokesman Alan Keyes, later adding that his organization would be willing to settle for a half-liter of maternal cord plasma." 

And Tom Tomorrow has his own version which, as usual, perfectly captures the politics (and racism) of the moment.  Click on the Tom Tomorrow badge on the right side of the blog to read the whole comic.
