It seems we can add yet another Republican to the list of those embarrassing themselves this year with this birther nonsense -- Missouri Rep. Vicky Hartzler. She decided to join the ranks of Rep. Cliff Stearns and Arizona's wingnut Sheriff Joe Arpaio with pandering to the worst elements within the GOP base with this fearmongering and not so thinly veiled racism with trying to paint Barack Obama as "the other" or "foreign."

From Progress Missouri -- Vicky Hartzler is still a birther. "I have doubts that it is really his real birth certificate.":

It's April 2012, but Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler is still worried that Barack Obama is an illegal immigrant with a forged birth certificate. As first reported by the Sedalia Democrat, Rep. Hartlzer expressed "a lot of doubts" about the legitimacy of Obama’s birth certificate at a town hall in Sedalia, MO on April 5. Jerry Schmidt of Show Me Progress has the whole thing on video.

"You know I have a lot of doubts about all [Obama's birth certificate]....I don’t understand why he didn’t show that right away." When asked to clarify her doubts during press availability after the event, Hartzler said: “I have doubts that it is really his real birth certificate, and I think a lot of Americans do, but they claim it is, so we are just going to go with that.”
