Really, it’s not about race

So, Romney is trying out the birther tack:

Wading into a debunked conspiracy theory, Mitt Romney raised the issue of President Barack Obama’s citizenship Friday by joking that ‘‘no one’s ever asked to see my birth certificate.’’

At a rally in the suburbs of Detroit, Romney told a crowd of about 5,000 that he and his wife were happy to be back near their childhood home. ‘‘They know that this is the place that we were born and raised,’’ the candidate said.

Top Romney adviser Kevin Madden tried to walk the comments back shortly after, saying: ‘‘The governor has always said, and has repeatedly said, he believes the president was born here in the United States.’’

Yeah, he’s just saying Obama isn’t a real American if you know what I mean … no, no, it has nothing to do with race.

Of course, if you’re looking for the real crazies you gotta go to Texas:

Head and County Commissioner Mark Heinrich appeared Tuesday night on a local television news broadcast to promote the tax increase, when the judge expressed concerns civil unrest of the worst proportions would break out if Obama wins a second term.

“He’s going to try to hand over the sovereignty of the United States to the U.N., and what is going to happen when that happens?” Head asked.

“I’m thinking the worst. Civil unrest, civil disobedience, civil war maybe. And we’re not just talking a few riots here and demonstrations, we’re talking Lexington, Concord, take up arms and get rid of the guy.

“Now what’s going to happen if we do that, if the public decides to do that? He’s going to send in U.N. troops. I don’t want ’em in Lubbock County. OK. So I’m going to stand in front of their armored personnel carrier and say ‘you’re not coming in here’.”

This, of course , also has nothing to do with race. You would have to be crazy to think so, so ask Head.
