Bad News For PUMAs

Via John Cole's Balloon Juice, I have tragic news for our PUMA fans here at My DD.
The state's Department of Health director on Friday released a statement verifying the legitimacy of Sen. Barack Obama birth certificate.
The state has received multiple requests for a copy of Obama's birth certificate. State law does not allow officials to release the birth certificate of a person to someone outside of the family.
"Therefore, I as Director of Health for the State of Hawai`i, along with the Registrar of Vital Statistics who has statutory authority to oversee and maintain these type of vital records, have personally seen and verified that the Hawai`i State Department of Health has Sen. Obama's original birth certificate on record in accordance with state policies and procedures," Fukino said.
And checking over at Riverdaughter, not a word about any birth certificate, though plenty of noise is made about how the right wingers are paying attention to PUMAs again.
Desperation makes strange bedfellows.
