In the weeks before the Republican primary, it must be tempting to pander to the wingnuts who actually believe that Barack Obama was born in Kenya. Too tempting, it seems, for gubernatorial candidate Rick Scott, who fielded a question this week from one such wingnut during an appearance at the Villages.

The Orlando Sentinel:

After confessing to the crowd he'd never gotten that question before -- and wasn't sure precisely how the practice of getting a presidential candidate on the ballot worked -- he said, "I'll have to look into it."
