The birther conspiracy theory is part of the hysteria that passes for politics these days. Today, Romney demonstrated his willingness to surf this wacky wave while pretending that he's just joking.
Birtherism is no joke. There are crackpot public officials out there that are threatening to take up arms if the 'un-American' Obama is re-elected. For them, his 'questionable' birth is the heart of his illegitimacy. If Romney doesn't apologize for this joke and unreservedly renounce birtherism, he is fostering hysteria that will lower our political discourse down so far, that a back-alley knife fight will seem genteel in comparison.

Based on his impressive foray into utter lunacy, I believe that Tom Head is the perfect poster child for this burgeoning hysteria and, consequently, I would like to propose the term 'Tomheader' for someone espousing his level of 'take our country back' hysteria. Spread the word.

So, the choice for American voters is now between:
- Obama/Biden, who say we're all in this together and we have to cooperate and help each other to succeed.
- Romney/Ryan, who not only philosophize about everybody watching out for themselves, benefiting from the misfortunes of others, and the strongest surviving (Ryan), but have actually implemented that philosophy (Romney).

The Delhi Charter School in Delhi, Louisiana makes young women take a pregnancy test if someone even suspects they are pregnant. The only way she can stay in school is to take the test and for it to be negative, otherwise she's out.
