Picture: Obama Campaign Selling 'Birth Certificate' Mug

| by Michael Allen

President Obama has turned the tables on the 'birthers' by selling a new mug that features his picture on one side and his birth certificate on the other. His campaign is selling "Made in the USA" coffee mugs for $20.

The comical description on the Obama 2012 website reads: "There's really no way to make the birth certificate conspiracy completely go away, so we might as well laugh at it -- and make sure as many people as possible are in on the joke. Get your Made In The USA mug today."

One person who probably won't want one is 'birther' Orly Taitz who lost another Obama birth certificate lawsuit this week. A federal judge on Monday dismissed her lawsuit seeking access to copies of Barack Obama’s long form birth certificate.

District of Columbia Chief District Judge Royce C. Lamberth said her lawsuit was part of a “Sisyphean quest” to prove Obama had used a fake Social Security number and a forged birth certificate to run for President of the United States.

The complaint was filed by Taitz against White House Counsel Kathy Ruemmler. Kathy had refused to comply with a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to gain access to certified copies of Obama’s original long form birth certificate.
