The release of President Obama's long-form birth certificate accomplished a couple things, including cutting the number of birthers in half and driving Donald Trump from the presidential race. Perhaps the White House wants to gloat just a bit? Perhaps it just needs the money? Obama's 2012 reelection campaign site is selling T-shirts with a picture of the birth certificate on the back, with a smiling image of Obama on the front above the words, "MADE in the USA." Donate $25 and this piece of history can be all yours. Curiously, there's no link to the shirt in the Obama store. Perhaps the campaign was hoping to delay the release of the tee until a critical mass of conspiracy theorists demanded it.
