At last, someone has quantified what I have been saying for the last few years (see my first article from 2006 and again in 2007). There is apparently a significant portion of our population (~10%) that cannot discern between reality and fantasy. I am talking of course about the “birthers.” I think we should look at this as an opportunity. With this issue we can clearly see that there is a reality deficit problem with about 10% of our population. This isn’t an issue that you can have different opinions on. There is reality and there is fantasy. I really think that someone needs to do a formal study to see what exactly is wrong with these people. I have posited that they have problems with memory function. But it could be anything.
