"Bonkers" may be a bit of an exaggeration -- the Free Republic just did a short little blog post on it -- but this cut-down of yet another birther conspiracy thread from Confederate Yankee is worth a read. It's worth a read not so we can drive more traffic to this topic, but so we can shut out the fallacies before they spin out of control.
Free Republic is going absolutely bonkers over a document claiming to be an official copy of his Kenyan Birth Certificate, posted at World Net Daily.

It's a poor forgery.

If you look at the document and scroll down to the bottom, you will see on the left side the reputed embossed official seal, and under it, "Office of the Principal Registrar, Coast Province, Republic of Kenya."

Directly to the right of that seal is the issue date of the document, the "17th day of February, 1964."

The was no Republic of Kenya in February of 1964.
