Salon has published a "handy-dandy guide to refuting the birthers." Here are the eight claims they knock down:
Myth 1: Obama wasn't born in the U.S.

Myth 2: Obama can't be president because his father was a British citizen

Myth 3: A Kenyan birth certificate for Obama, showing he was born in Mombasa, has been discovered

Myth 4: Obama's grandmother said he was born in Kenya

Myth 5: Hawaii allows parents to get birth certificates for their foreign-born children

Myth 6: Obama traveled to Pakistan using an Indonesian passport

Myth 7: Obama hasn't released his birth certificate

Myth 8:  If Obama would just release his birth certificate, he could end all this
