We all owe a debt of gratitude to Donald Trump.
Before he harrumphed his way into the national political discussion, the whole “birther” issue had pretty much vanished from rational discussion. Columnists didn’t want to write about it. Outside of a very few even on Fox News, the chattering classes were giving it a wide berth.
And then, in steps The Donald and gives it the sort of treatment the folks who believe in it think it deserves, so now, of course, everyone is talking about it again.
About time. I, for one, had missed it.
