Idiot of the Week: Rep. Roy Blunt

It is time once again to announce this week's idiot. Here at Atheist Revolution, a new "winner" is named each Saturday. Competition was unusually stiff, and it seems to be getting progressively more difficult to select our idiot king.

Despite just having honored the entire birther movement last week, I have to go with Rep. Roy Blunt (R-MO) this week. It isn't just that he's feeding the birthers. It isn't even that he's talking out of both sides of his mouth, suggesting that Obama is an American citizen while continuing to spew birther nonsense. It is this:
What I don't know is why the president can't produce a birth certificate. I don't know anybody else that can't produce one. And I think that that's a legitimate question -- no health records, no birth certificate.
Rep. Blunt is free to despise everything Obama stands for, but by claiming that no birth certificate has been produced when we've all seen it is idiocy of the highest order.

As Fired Up Missouri says,
Either subscribe to the insanity. Or don't. There is no middle ground.
