Oh My! Mitt Romney Revives 'Birther' Controversy — 'No One's Ever Asked to See My Birth Certificate' (VIDEO)

I personally wasn't expecting this, but since Team Obama's campaigning for reelection on the dirtiest platform in American history, it makes perfect sense. Indeed, joking about O's birth certificate is a brilliant burst of spontaneity on the eve of the Republican National Convention. Progressives can get all bent out of shape that Mitt dared even question --- even jokingly --- Barack Hussein's eligibility for the Oval Office. Meanwhile, O's media lapdogs will eat it up, looking to smear the GOP ticket as extremists and "birthers," which nicely takes the focus off the left's abortion obsession. The trick, however, is not to let "birtherism" really take hold again. The convention starts Monday. Get the focus on the economy.

In any case, see William Jacobson, at Legal Insurrection, "Barack Obama again jokes about his birth certificate, outrage ensues …. oh, wait":

Oooooh, Mitt Romney made a joke about his own birth certificate, and the MSM and nutroots go wild!
More at that link, and also at Memeorandum. And at Twitchy, "Romney: ‘No one has ever asked to see my birth certificate’; Update: Team Obama feigns outrage" (at Memeorandum).

I'm gonna check around for some of that nutroots outrage and see if I can come up with some knee-slappers. Check back.
