One thing that might explain recent political events is that Barack Obama is really a woman, and Michelle is really a man.
Check out the YouTube videos on Michelle Obama is a man, Barack Obama is a homosexual, and Barack Obama is a man.
Barack's publicly-released birth certificate says that he is male, but that is not the original. He could have gotten a court order to change it, based on the gender that he currently identifies with.
Admittedly, it is wildly implausible that the couple could have so many people so badly fooled. But watch the videos. They make surprisingly strong arguments.
