One hundred dollars. That’s all they want. A measly $100:
The state [of Hawaii] would charge $100 for a copy of President Obama’s birth records under a bill introduced in the Legislature by five Democrats. It would change a privacy law barring the release of birth records unless the person seeking them has a tangible interest.
“Tangible interest?” Since Obama previously provided a birth certificate, it is hard to imagine how anyone has “tangible interest” other than President Obama. (Okay…and maybe his children if the Vitter–Paul resolution ever gains traction.
Hawaii should reconsider their plan. First, they should auction just one copy of the “long form” birth certificate. And they should start bidding at $71.6 million. Why that amount? Because that’s Hawaii’s 2011 budget deficit.
And those crazy birfer bastards at World Net Daily or the kooks at FAUX News might just get into a bidding war. One of them might just cough up the dough in order to “call Hawaii’s bluff” and have the “scoop of the decade.”
Hawaii should definitely clear the check before delivery….
