Obama was really born in...

...Hawaii, just as we knew all along.

In response to the persistent right-wing rumors that Obama was born in Kenya--although that smear was debunked months ago--the Director of Hawaii's Department of Health, Dr. Chiyome Fukino, has released this statement (h/t: Ron Chusid at Liberal Values):

There have been numerous requests for Sen. Barack Hussein Obama's official birth certificate. State law (Hawai'i Revised Statutes ยง338-18) prohibits the release of a certified birth certificate to persons who do not have a tangible interest in the vital record.

Therefore, I as Director of Health for the State of Hawai'i, along with the Registrar of Vital Statistics who has statutory authority to oversee and maintain these type of vital records, have personally seen and verified that the Hawai'i State Department of Health has Sen. Obama's original birth certificate on record in accordance with state policies and procedures.

No state official, including Governor Linda Lingle, has ever instructed that this vital record be handled in a manner different from any other vital record in the possession of the State of Hawaii.

The original stone tablet is probably in an exhibit of pre-Columbian antiquities, but here's a paper copy of McCain's birth certificate:

It shows that McCain was born in the Panamanian city of Colon, which is "surrounded by, but not part of, the former Panama Canal Zone."

Apparently, John McCain is the presidential candidate who was actually born in a foreign country.
