"Five pillars" and paranoia

I'm waiting--just waiting--for some yahoo to point to the "five pillars" language in the president's education speech this morning and say, "Hey, there are five pillars of Islam, too. This means...!" Then again, such a statement would require that the said nutcase would have to know something about Islam. 

And while we're speaking of conspiracies, is there anyone else who is completely fed up with the "birthers," who do not understand that people from different backgrounds can fall in love and have a kid who has to be born somewhere? At some point, the tin-foil lunatics have to face up to the fact that Barack Obama was born in the United States, even if he is half-Vulcan.
