An early contender (it’s still Sunday) is this, by Dan Blatt ’85. Don’t click unless you want to expose yourself to whargarbl. The comments thread over there is particularly worth cherishing, and it makes EphBlog comments look like the Algonquin roundtable in comparison.

UPDATE: Blatt responds. I should note that I never intended to imply that he was a birther; rather, I think it’s problematic that he is keeping a controversy alive unnecessarily, even though he knows the truth of the situation, and lending legitimacy to the nutcases with the post linked above. I’ve found his blog to otherwise be perfectly sane even though I disagree with it most of the time.
