Very Serious White House Press Corp

The White House press corp spent another day digging into the most critically important issue facing the American people. The economy? Energy? Heck no. The press wasted their time asking Jay Carney about Donald Trump's phony-baloney publicity stunt. Shame on all of them.

White House press secretary Jay Carney on Tuesday rejected suspicions about President Obama's birth certificate for a second straight day.

Reporters peppered Carney with questions about billionaire businessman Donald Trump's doubts about the president's birthplace and the certificate itself. He called Obama's citizenship a "settled issue" and said that all the talk is an "unfortunate distraction from the issues."

Very serious. Once again, to quote Jon Stewart, "You're hurting America."
