Luke Scott, of the Baltimore Birthers, want President Obama's birth certificate verified

Well he is at it again, professional baseball player Luke Scott of the Baltimore Birthers (Orioles) has spoken out about President Obama's long form birth certificate telling the Kansas City Star:

“(President Obama’s) birth certificate has yet to be validated. If they can counterfeit $100 bills, I think it’s a million times easier to counterfeit a birth certificate, if you ask me. So, all it is, let’s just see if it’s real. Anybody can produce a document, so let’s check it out.”

Scott had previously made headlines in December when he revealed himself to be a birther and for calling a Dominican teammate a savage and throwing banana chips at his helmet:

“Felix is my friend,” he says. “I give him a hard time. The reason why I give him a hard time is because there are certain people you deal with and you go up and talk to them, and it doesn’t work. They don’t understand. … I tell him about some of the ways he’s acted: ‘Look, you’re acting like an animal, you’re acting like a savage.’”

He also explained why he throws banana chips into the helmet of his Dominican teammate.

“Here are my banana chips to remind him that whenever he acts like an animal, ‘Hey, that’s what other people are thinking. They’re just not telling you, but that’s what they’re thinking about. And I’m telling you so that you’re aware of that so you can make a cognitive decision to not behave like that.’”

Luke Scott, this guy must make the people of Baltimore, the Orioles and Major League Baseball proud.

as a baltimorean, i would have to say that his "viewpoint" is fairly common especially in Pigtown.
