Merely edited after the birth certificate's release, a bumper sticker example of the persistent 'birther' controversy.   (?666isMONEY ? ? & ?)

(Newser) – We’ve seen the long form certificate, but the birther issue just won’t die. Author Jerome Corsi’s new book Where’s the Birth Certificate? debuts at number six on the New York TimesBest Sellers list out Sunday, according to CNN. The book argues that President Obama’s citizenship has never been verified by a legal authority. Despite the White House release of the president's Certificate of Live Birth, 17% of Americans think he was definitely or probably not born in the US, according to a recent poll taken after Obama's birth certificate announcement.

"17% of Americans think he was definitely or probably not born in the US," And 17% probably the product of inbreeding as well, so what.................. The country is in shambles, the economy is a farce built upon a lie and has fallen on its face leaving the American working class screwed and a Right Wing idiot who can't read at a third grade level runs out to purchase a book built on more lies and is distracted by the lies from seeing the truth The American worker is a slave, after years and years the wages paid are less than the upkeep on slave housing and ownership Distract the idiots all you want for nothing shall ever change the facts The Fact that Obama was born in the USA and when push come to shove it doesn't mean a thing

Righties, you don't need to buy or read this book because you already know it is factual.... Instead send your money to Palin where you also know it will do good... Besides Sarah NEEDS your money as she is just barely scraping by....

Many right wing so called best seller books have an asterisk next to them on the NY Times list. That means bulk purchase. In other words they are not popular books at all. They are bought by one individual to pump up their sales numbers and give the impression they are popular. THis has been going on for many years. For example... _________________________________________________ clip - Palin's ( book ) sales were boosted by $64,000 in bulk purchases made by her political action group, SarahPAC
