Who the hell are these people?

That's the question The Gawker asks about the Birthers (h/t Media Matters). The article basically attempts to locate the origins of this particular urban legend (possibly Andy Martin or Jerome Corsi who both have long histories as conspiracy nuts), what its adherents believe (which given the convoluted nature of this particular urban legend takes some effort), and who keeps legitimizing these loonies (Lou Dobbs is certainly one of the culprits, but so too Camile Paglia, Liz Cheney, Glenn Beck, at one point the blog No Quarter, ad nauseum).
