I have been looking for a good recent poll on how many Birthers there might be, and Lo And Behold!, someone at Orly’s World Facebook page had a link. Here is an excerpt:
IIRC, back in 2010 about 58% of the country had some degree of doubt about where Obama was born. Now, that number is down to about 40%, but seems to be holding firm at that level. The comments at the above link are good, too.
Note 1. The Image. This is Minna Reverelli, and here is a youtube of her singing Cuckoo in the Wood, from around 1940ish.
I really wanted to base this on the 1937 Merrie Melodies hit, The Woods Are Full of Cuckoos, but I couldn’t find a copy.
