The reporter from a Yahoo! baseball blog then
asked Scott, "You don't think that Obama wasn't born in the United States, do you?"
"He was not born here," Scott said. "That's my belief. I was born here. If someone accuses me of not being born here, I can go -- within 10 minutes -- to my filing cabinet and I can pick up my real birth certificate and I can go, 'See? Look! Here it is. Here it is.'"
OK. First of all, most everyone else - even the most rabid on the right - has moved on past this issue of the president's birth. We are certain that it occurred, what with the way we see him walkin' and talkin' and runnin' the country, you betcha. And we know that it occurred in 1961 in Hawaii, which was at that time one of the states of the Union.
What we don't know is how Luke Brandon Scott, from out of DeLeon Springs, FL, can sleep at night when the president's birthplace so roils his fevered soul. Perhaps growing at home there, bathing in the fountain of youth allegedly discovered by Juan Ponce de León, young Luke decided to avoid growing old by not growing up.
He is entitled to his beliefs, but not to his false facts.
