This morning another “birther” story got the Drudge treatment, it was from the Kenyan Daily Standard in 2004. The story begins:
Kenyan-born US Senate hopeful, Barrack Obama, appeared set to take over the Illinois Senate seat after his main rival, Jack Ryan, dropped out of the race on Friday night amid a furor over lurid sex club allegations.
The article attributed to the Associated Press did appear in the Standard and most of it was from the AP. The Kenyan paper added the first few words of the story

It appeared in the Seattle Times without that first line:

Look folks. Nobody want Obama out more than I do. But this birther crap is just that–CRAP. And I hate having to defend the usually biased AP, but fair is fair.
Why are we spending time on this nonsense when there is so much low-hanging fruit to go after…like his record as president.
All this story does is make Obama’s opposition look foolish, take time away from focusing on his lousy record and help him win re-election.
