Republicans sure do love a good conspiracy theory. Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-SC) — who once compared firearm background checks to the Rwandan genocide… — is hoping to again reignite the totally debunked and ridiculed idea that the President is secretly a Kenyan man who forged his birth certificate in order to become the leader of the free world.
Appearing on the terrible radio program TruNews with Rick Wiles this past Friday, the almost inane South Carolina congressman capitulated to Wiles’ asinine questioning and agreed that Congress should revisit the issue of “the president’s validity:
WILES: While you guys are rounding up and deporting the illegal immigrants, any chance the House may actually pursue Barack Obama’s phony identification papers? That’s the original scandal, congressman.
DUNCAN: People should have voted against him in November. I’m afraid that that wouldn’t get to the Supreme Court where it ought to get.
WILES: But if we know they’re lying about all these other things, why not go back and say, “well maybe the first scandal was a lie, too?”
DUNCAN: There you go. I’m all with you. Let’s go back and revisit some of these things because Americans have questions about not only the IRS scandal but also about the president’s validity.

Because it’s better to have these loons out in the open, exposed and shamed, here’s the list of other prominent Republican birthers, Courtesy of ThinkProgress: Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R), Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R), former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R), and Reps. Steve King (R-IA), Richard Hudson (R-NC), Mike Coffman (R-CO), and Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA).
