I'm getting to this a bit late, but last night The Washington Times posted this editorial, under the headline "Birth Certificate Isn’t Obama’s Only Secret." Here are the first two sentences:

Barack Hussein Obama II was born on Aug. 4, 1961, in Honolulu, Hawaii. For over two years, the president has resisted pressure to divulge this simple biographical information, which proves he's a natural-born citizen.

Excuse me? Have these people simply stopped trying to make their rants appear to jibe with the facts? Not content with arguing that Obama withheld the specific version of his birth certificate that they were irrationally howling for, they're claiming he withheld this basic biographical information about himself? He concealed the mere fact that he was born on 8/4/61 in Honolulu?

The facts of Obama's birth had been widely reported even before he released that first birth certificate in June 2008 -- but, um, USA Today had the basic data as far back as 2006, as did the Indian Express news service, and this astrology Web site. And that's just from a quick Google. So, um, I don't think there was a vast conspiracy to conceal this.
