Mon. fun video: Huffington quizzes McMorris Rodgers, others on birth certificate issue.

Gotta love a story with legs, and that's exactly what the Barack Obama birth certificate "controversy" seems to have.

Love it even more when the legs include local folks or place. First it was Orly Taitz asking Chief Justice Roberts a question about the controversy down at the University of Idaho. Now we have Huffington Post asking Republican members of Congress whether they think Obama is a natural born U.S. citizen, eligible to serve as president.

And the second person in the video? Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, queried as she jaunts up the steps. Rep. Dave Reichert of suburban Seattle also shows up about 1:15 in.

From the other side of the political spectrum, we have a conservative voice none other than Ann Coulter saying conservatives don't care about this, have dismissed it, says the "birthers" are cranks and it's only the liberal media that's trying to make it an issue.
