Sen. Inhofe: Birthers 'Have a Point'

Senator Jim Inhofe has publicly put on his tinfoil hat: "They have a point," the senator from Oklahoma tells Politico about the birthers. “I don’t discourage it.” That makes Inhofe the most high-profile politician to openly support the conspiracy theories about Obama's birth certificate. Inhofe is quoted in a Politico article about how Republicans will confront birthers in their constituencies when they go home for August recess.
