Mitt Romney made a “birther” joke on the stump.  A journalist got the following fundraising email:

Benjamin —

Mitt Romney, the Republican nominee for president of the United States, just said this:
“No one has ever asked to see my birth certificate. They know that this is the place that we were born and raised.”
Take a moment or two to think about that, what he’s actually saying, and what it says about Mitt Romney.
Then make a donation of $68 or more to re-elect Barack Obama today:

Thanks,
Messina
Jim Messina
Campaign Manager
Obama for America

I got the same email, but with “$150” not “$68” as my suggested donation.  I also get Romney emails but haven’t noticed any similar sophistry there yet so far.
