Nonpartisan birthers.

Dana Milbank is a deeply lazy writer.
Give these birthers some credit: They may be crazy, but they’re nonpartisan. In fact, if Trump and his ilk want to be fair about it, a white presidential candidate with a foreign-born father deserves to be badgered into releasing his birth certificate just as much as a black presidential candidate with a foreign-born father.
When scores of elected Democrats -- including those running for president -- refuse to say whether Mitt Romney's a citizen, when Democratic Secretaries of State start threatening to take Romney off the ballot and when a dozen or so Democratic members of Congress sign on to birther legislation -- then we'll call it "nonpartisan." 

Until then, not so much.
