Is David Vitter trying to lose? 

It sure looks that way:

The fringe “birther” movement may have found itself a new ally.

Republican Sen. David Vitter told a group of supporters last week he is in favor of groups who may want to take President Obama to court over the belief he is not an American citizen.

“I personally don’t have standing to bring litigation to court,” he said at a recent town hall meeting in Metairie, Lousiana, which was caught on video. “But I support conservative legal organizations and others who would bring that to court.”

I don’t know whether he’s being sincere, or just playing to the crowd, but this is not something you want to hear from a U.S. Senator.

I guess he’s just fortunate that people in Louisiana have a lot more serious things to think about right now.
