Birther congresspeople run from Huffington Post video reporter

Funny video of congresspeople running away from a Huffington Post reporter because they don't want to answer the question, "Is Barack Obama is an American?" If they say yes, they will offend their birther wingnut base. If they say no, they will be seen as birther winguts. So, they run.

Only one, Trent Franks of Arizona, gives a correct and clear answer, but even he can't help himself from suggesting that Obama is facilitating Jihad and turning America into a socialist state.

Folks, this is what it has come to. The most powerful people in the world — nationally elected legislators responsible for setting policy for the most powerful country on earth — are lining up with cuckoo-bat-shit-crazy elements of the lunatic fringe.

And they have to. It's their base.
