Like little stars.
Former House Majority leader Tom DeLay needs something to keep him busy now that he’s left the cast of “Dancing With the Stars” due to injury. So he’s attaching himself to the Birthers — again.
Unofficial Birther headquarters WorldNetDaily is trumpeting the news: In an interview with the man once known as “The Hammer,” Newsweek’s Ramin Setoodeh pointed out, “You got into some trouble for saying on TV that you weren’t sure President Obama was born in the United States.” DeLay responded, “What I said was, to answer a question from Chris Matthews, I said: ‘Why wouldn’t the president of the United States show the American people his birth certificate?’ You have to show a birth certificate to play Little League baseball. It’s a question that should be answered. It’s in the Constitution that you have to be a natural-born citizen of the United States to be president.”
Seetodeh followed up by asking, “Do you think he isn’t a citizen?”
“I have no idea,” DeLay answered.

World's best pie apple. Essential for Tarte Tatin. Has five prominent ribs.
So pretty. So early. So ephemeral. Tastes like strawberry candy (slightly).
My personal fave. Ultra-crisp. Graham cracker flavor. Should be famous. Isn't.
High flavored with notes of blood orange and allspice. Very rare.
Jefferson's favorite. The best all-purpose American apple.
New Hampshire's native son has a grizzled appearance and a strangely addictive curry flavor. Very, very rare.
Makes the best hard cider in America. Soon to be famous.
Freak seedling found in an Oregon field in the '60s has pink flesh and a fragrant strawberry snap. Makes a killer rose cider.
Ben Franklin's favorite. Queen Victoria's favorite. Only apple native to NYC.
Really does taste like pineapple.
