Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

Below the orange squiggle is a video of Ken Bennett speaking about his experiences with his crazy birther conspiracy adventure.

At about 6:50 into the video, he claims be believes Barack Obama "fibbed" about being a foreign student when he applied to college.

This birther story line goes back to April 1, 2009, when an "AP article" claimed that recently released Occidental transcripts for "Barry Soetoro" showed he had applied for college as an Indonesian student, as well as also applied for and granted a Fullbright Foundation Scholarship and that the requirements for winning the scholarship was the applicant must be a foreign student.

Of course, this was an April Fools joke intended to poke fun at the Birthers. The Birthers didn't get it and it has remained hardcore fact in the gospel according to Birtherstan ever since.

Intro

You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

Regardless of the Birth Certificate odyssey of Ken Bennett, suggesting something certifiably false is true makes this another adventure into full metal birtherism. Without further ado, the video.
