Just like other issues (gay marriage being the latest), BO's birthplace at any given time will be wherever it profits him most. Stay tuned.

Sure, literary agents lie.

But why is it the same lie? They could have said he was born in Zambia, South Africa, Nigeria, the Sudan.

But it is always Kenya. Coincidence? No way.

Who cares where he was born? The real problem is where he lives right now. Get him out of there, and then we can talk.

If the agent was really lying, he would have said that Obama is 1/32 Cherokee.
