Short Takes: 3/28/11

Donald Trump has released his birth certificate, as the attention whore continues his “birther” crusade.  At this point, Trump is no longer a serious candidate.  The so-called “birther” thing is stupid.  Obama was born in Hawaii. Arguing otherwise just makes you look like an ass.

Is nothing sacred? The White House Easter Egg Roll is going green, so add that to the list of things that environmentalists have ruined.  It’s bad enough that I can’t flush my toilet because it uses almost no water. Now Easter is being destroyed by the greenie weenies too?

Presidential candidate Herman Cain is taking some flak for saying that he won’t appoint Muslims to his administration.  Of course, lefty groups are having a field day, but Cain recanted the statement, mentioning that Article 6 of the Constitution forbids any sort of religious “test” for getting a a government position.  I like Herman Cain, and I don’t think this will hurt his campaign.  He’s already a long-shot.

The NY Post reports that Katie Couric is likely to leave the CBS anchor chair when her contract is up.  CBS is reportedly offering her a daytime talk show (Oprah’s departure will leave a big hole in that field) and a major slot in 60 Minutes.  This way she can still be a journalist while pursuing an entertainment career.  Couric’s alleged bubbly personality will work well on a talk show.

Bonus video of the day: Taiwan’s Next Media Animation, known for their funny news animations, has done one for the Glenn Beck vs. Fox News story.
