GOP Picks Birther to Respond to Obama

The Huffington Post reports that Rep. Charles Boustany (R-LA) -- a doctor who was chosen to give the Republican response to President Obama's health care speech tonight -- is one of those who also questions whether the president is actually an American citizen.

Update: Politico reports House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-OH) defended the pick of Boustany "saying he knew nothing of Boustany's apparent flirtation with the birther movement."

Update II: Ben Smith reports Boustany "aspired to British nobility" before making his run for Congress by trying to buy a "title."
