Despite "birther queen" Orly Taitz's electoral defeat, the birther movement remains an obnoxious cousin to the conservative revival, perpetually exasperating and infuriating right-wingers. Steven Colbert took the opportunity to mock the movement on last night's Colbert Report during a segment devoted to the fleeting appearance of an Obama doppelgänger in the 1993 music video for Tag Teams' "Whoomp (There It Is)." A man who purportedly looks like the president appears at 1:01.



In typical fashion, Colbert offered Obama sage advice in addressing the video, which has been circulating in the blogosphere. "All he needs to do is order the state of Hawaii to release his official government rap certificate."
