A little known fact about Canada is that it is the world’s largest producer of famous Americans. Recall, for example, John Kenneth Galbraith, Wayne Gretzky, William Shatner, Michael J. Fox, Malcolm Gladwell, Shirley Tilghman and Keanu Reeves. Some have suggested that Obama is a Canadian, leading to a split in the birther movement between the original birthers and the neo-birthers. Originalists believe that Obama was sired in a Kenyan village, imbued with an anti-colonial mindset, leavened by Saul Alinsky radicalism and smuggled into the US with the intent of turning the US into an Islamic caliphate. The neo-birthers believe that this beggars belief. It is simpler, they say, to believe that Obama is Canadian.
