Peter Boyles wants to put up birther billboard
KHOW talk-show host Peter Boyles has spent many, many mornings during the past year or so talking about President Barack Obama's U.S. birth certificate, and whether it's the genuine item. But this morning, his latest variation on the topic -- the prospect of putting up a station-sanctioned billboard asking the question, "Where's the Birth Certificate?" -- is getting national attention from World Net Daily, which has erected similar placards at locations such as the Las Vegas Strip. True, the site's story about Boyles isn't today's top item: That honor belongs to a piece headlined "Glenn Beck's Fear of Obama: Seize Power Overnight." Still, the Boyles account is as kind as kind can be, quoting the host as saying he's unaware of any other radio station sponsoring such a billboard to date. He adds, "Maybe we could be a league leader. I think it'd be fun."
It's definitely an idea born in the U.S.A.
