It’s uncanny

A SurveyUSA poll finds that despite Obama releasing the so-called long-form birth certificate, “18% still have doubts and another 10% say the document released by the White House is a forgery.”

The total number of skeptics add up almost exactly to the famous Crazification Factor number of 27%.

And there’s more. According to the same survey “Both 27% who have seen the certificate and 27% who have not seen the certificate say the matter is still an open item for debate.” In other words, the people in the Crazification world are totally impervious to evidence.

    The Crazification Factor of 27% is extremely interesting, as I did psych at uni. I believe I am in that ‘crazy’ group, because I know that the CIA is well able to create false documents that pass off as real. The long form birth certificate was brought out way too late. I’ll vote ‘crazy.’ :-)
