p until Monday of this week, perennial presidential candidate Mike Huckabee was the bane of the so-called birthers.

A week ago on Good Morning America, Huckabee pandered to George Stephanopoulos’s ABC audience with the now standard Republic disclaimer on the Barack Obama citizenship issue.

“I just don’t think it’s completely necessary for us to delve into such extraneous matters,” sniffed Huckabee. “And for Republicans to even be bringing it up, I think it’s a waste of energy and time.“

And then on Monday of this week, like a Bizarro-World Paul on the road to Damascus, Huckabee seems to have fallen off his horse--head first. When he came to, alas, he was not exactly seeing the light. In fact, he was not even making sense.

"One thing that I do know,” Huckabee said of Obama on Steve Malzberg’s New York radio show, “is his having grown up in Kenya, his view of the Brits, for example, (is) very different than the average American.”

As I show in my new book, Deconstructing Obama, there are holes in Obama’s origins story big enough for anyone but the dipsomaniacal Barack Obama Sr. to drive a truck through.

As big as those holes are, no one has ever tried to fill them by having Obama grow up in Kenya for the simple reason he did not.

For Huckabee going forward—if he still has a career—and for all Republicans, if asked about the citizenship issue, please answer as follows:

“George/ David/ Chris etc--if there is ignorance” abroad, as you suggest, it is because of your collective failure to investigate the background of Barack Obama.  The truth is we know more about George Washington's early years than Obama’s.”  

“Did you know, for instance, that young Barack and his mother spent his first year in Washington State?  Did you know the little Obama family we heard so much about in his convention speeches never was? Did you know his presumed parents never lived together and may never have married? So please, stop lecturing us about what we don’t know and do the kind of research on Obama that you are now doing on, say, Charlie Sheen.”
