(Newser) – Butt-of-hipster-jokes Chuck Norris has leaped into the birther movement, challenging  President Obama to cough up his "long form" birth certificate. Norris wishes Obama happy birthday on, then not-so-subtly sequés into: "Speaking of birthdays," why do "you refuse to reveal your original birth certificate?" Not to do so is simply "enabling" the birther movement, the karate chop king cautions his president. The Republican martial arts actor backed Mike Huckabee in the presidential sweepstakes last year.
