Griper News: News Roundup for 5/10/11

Obama face palm
"Oh fer chrissake..."

-Headline of the day-
"Half of Republicans polled still don't believe Obama was born in USA."

File this under "never underestimate the bullheaded stupidity of Republican voters." According to the report, "More than a week after the White House unearthed President Obama's original, long-form, Hawaii birth certificate, only 48% of Republicans polled said they believe he was born in the United States.

"In a poll conducted by Public Policy Polling from May 5-8 of 610 Americans who usually support Republicans in primaries, 34% said they did not believe Obama was born in the U.S. while 18% said they still aren't sure."

So, after the release of the document that birthers said would totally convince them, 52% of GOP voters are either birthers or birther-lite.

And this was the same poll that showed that Donald Trump's candidacy had "collapsed" following the BC release.

It's like they blame him for getting the document and (almost) bursting their bubble. (LA Times)

-And here comes the next round of crazy-
Newt Gingrich is going to announce his candidacy. Expect it to look like this:

It's not so much a question of whether a crazy person will win the GOP primary, as it is a question of which one. (Political Wire)

-Bonus HotD-
"Republicans in Texas Senate approve guns on campus."

Because history shows that really awesome things happen when people bring guns to colleges. (AP)
