There are people who fervently believe that President Barack Obama was not born in the United States, despite all evidence and logic to the contrary, and hence, that he is not actually qualified to hold that office.

Is this a “mainstream” republican party issue in Missouri? Apparently so:

Dr. Orly Taitz

Dr. Orly Taitz, lead attorney on the Obama Birth Certificate issue, will be coming to Missouri to speak with Senators, Representatives, and Citizens about getting into action regarding the Obama Birth Certificate dilemma.

Obama has spent millions keeping his birth certificate a secret, but the issue WILL NOT go away. There will be two meetings on July 1st, lasting 1-2 hours each. Please join Dr. Taitz and bring a friend!

There are two scheduled events in Missouri tomorrow. One in St. Louis at 11:00 a.m. and one in Jefferson City at the Capitol Plaza at 4:00 p.m. It seems that bloggers aren’t welcome, even if we are somebody’s friend.

Our good friends at Fired Up were discouraged from attending:

I am familiar with your SMEAR Journalism (sic). You are not welcome at either events (sic). If you do show up, we will be forced to call security.

Man, how are we gonna get to see who attends this? I guess we’ll have to ask republican members of the Missouri General Assembly one by one if they attended and if they subscribe to the birther premise. That could be fun. Any guesses?
