Arizona GOP chairman Tom Morrissey, alleged birther.
Arizona Republican Party chairman Tom Morrissey insists he is not a "birther."

However, Morrissey says, "In my opinion, what I have seen from the president, produced as a birth certificate, does not convince me that it is a real document."

The Associated Press brought up the situation in its report on the meeting in which Arizona's 11 electors cast their votes for Mitt Romney. Apparently, three of those electors -- Morrissey being one of them -- went "birther."

According to that report, Morrissey and two others "spoke up during the ceremony to voice doubts about Obama's eligibility as a native-born U.S. citizen."

Morrissey was later given the opportunity to explain himself on 550 KFYI and Morrissey -- speaking as a "concerned American" -- said he didn't think the president had produced a "true document," and the president's birth certificate "doesn't ring with [him]."

Now, does it sound like the head of the Arizona Republican Party is a "birther"?

Mossissey, nothing more than another GOP nutcase.

Who cares? - "Queen Anne is Dead!" and Obama received the vote of the American People for a second Term.

Of course he is, just like Secretary of State Ken Bennett.

I'm really disappointed in the Arizona GOP. So far, conservatives in both Minnesota and Tennessee  have won the "Batshit Crazy" race to see who would be the first to call for arming teachers in response to the Newtown  shooting.

Maybe they're to focused on the birther bullshit to take their usual stance of saying more guns is the answer to these tragedies.

Let me remember why I live here. It certainly can't be the troglodyte politics.

Any sane member of the AZ GOP that calls this clown their leader should be ashamed.

I guess there are no sane members of the AZ GOP.  Is the AZ GOP going to sponsor another photo shoot with Santa, an AR-15, and your kids, as they did at the Scottsdale Gun club a few weeks back?

So easy to answer. I can hear the circus music playing in my head as I look at this man's face.

I miss the point of bringing up this dead subject at an ostensibly dignified occasion such as a meeting of the Electoral College. AZ GOPers sure picked a winner. Add stupid effer, jackass and moron to Mel Brooks' list.

I didn't see an option for "Goober", which seems much more appropriate.

If he doesn't see himself as a "birther" why the heck is he trying to re-birth this very DEAD issue?

I suppose the head geriatrician at MCSO needs something to mush about in front of a camera.

To quote that great American political philosopher, Mel Brooks on the current state of the Arizona GOP, "They have got rustlers, cut throats, murderers, bounty hunters, desperados, mugs, pugs, thugs, nitwits, halfwits, dimwits, vipers, snipers, con men, Indian agents, Mexican bandits, muggers, buggerers, bushwhackers, hornswogglers, horse thieves, bull dykes, train robbers, bank robbers, ass-kickers, shit-kickers and Mormons."

@ReggieVV I believe that last group was supposed to be Methodists. However, given the local color, your version fits better.
