Is Rush Limbaugh a birther? It sure sounded that way to Mediaite during his rant yesterday about illegal immigration. Rush was obsessing over a recent Obama statement condemning Arizona's new illegal immigration law, in which the president worried that “if you don't have your're gonna be harassed.”

To Rush, the use of the word “papers” rather than, say, “documentation” was a deliberate attempt to evoke Nazi Germany. “I can understand Obama being touchy on the subject of producing your papers,” Rush bellowed. “Maybe he's afraid someone is going to ask him for his!” (More Rush Limbaugh stories.)
