Mitt Romney may have just gotten my vote.
Today Romney joked in Michigan that "no one's ever asked to see my birth certificate," an obvious reference to the birther movement's doubts about President Barack Obama.
Why does Romney's comments make me so happy? Because I've done quite a bit of research -- some of it published, some of it at a journal awaiting acceptance -- about myths and misperceptions about Obama. You know, the Muslim thing. The birthplace thing, which I've written about a lot. By keeping the nutjob flame alive, Romney keeps my research relevant and current. Thank you, Mr. Governor. I very much appreciate it.
