As if his propensity for diaper-clad encounters with prostitutes was not enough reason for the Pelican State to rid themselves of their senatorial malignancy, it now turns out that Sen. David Vitter (R-Diaper Fetish) is also a birther.

Republican Sen. David Vitter of Louisiana says he supports conservative organizations challenging President Barack Obama's citizenship in court.
Vitter, who is running for re-election, made the comments at a town hall-style event in Metairie, La., on Sunday when a constituent asked what he would do about what the questioner said was Obama's "refusal to produce a valid birth certificate."
Such claims about Obama's birth certificate have been discredited. But with the crowd applauding the question, Vitter responded that although he doesn't personally have legal standing to bring litigation, he supports "conservative legal organizations and others who would bring that to court," according to a video of the event.
Sen. Vitter's Democratic opponent, Rep. Charlie Melancon was quick to discredit the idea.
"While Louisiana families are suffering from the biggest man-made disaster in history, David Vitter is trying to score political points by perpetuating a completely debunked conspiracy theory," spokesman Jeff Giertz said.
