Here's Your Dr. David Sinclair Conspiracy Theory

If there was anything to feel good about in yesterday's dramatic birth-certificate reveal, it was probably the fact that the news brought some joy to the family of the late Dr. David Sinclair, the obstetrician who delivered President Barack Obama in 1961. His widow and children had no idea that that their family patriarch had been part of history, and the news brought them no small amount of joy.

But then, I started having some dark thoughts that even this tiny bit of "feel-good" would somehow get harshed. Because it's so suspicious, right? The one guy who could personally attest to being present as the future president emerged from the womb was conveniently dead. And his family never knew? That just means that they weren't in on the ornate and sprawling conspiracy that involved generations of state and local officials, as well as Obama's family.

Well, apparently, everything I worry about eventually happens. Here's Ben Dimiero at MediaMatters' County Fair blog:

Last night on Fox Business, Eric Bolling hosted Pamela Geller to discuss in all seriousness whether Obama's long-form birth certificate was "photoshopped." Geller has been making a fool of herself over Obama's birth certificate for three years now, alleging that Obama's certificate of live birth was a "forgery" that previously belonged to a "female." Nonetheless, Bolling apparently thought she was an important voice to include last night.

After pointing at a blown-up version of Obama's long-form certificate and discussing whether the borders were "photoshopped," Bolling concluded that "it may or may not be, but it certainly opens up the can of worms that there are at least questions."

Here's an example of the kinds of "questions" Bolling now has. After noting that the doctor who signed the birth certificate had "passed away," Bolling pointed out that the doctor's wife and son both were unaware that he had delivered President Obama. Bolling asked: "If you gave birth to the president of the United States, don't you think your family would know about it?"

As Dimiero notes, Dr. Sinclair passed away in 2003, before then-State Senator Obama delivered his speech at the 2004 Democratic National Convention that informed most of America that he even existed and had the potential to be somewhat significant in the realm of American politics. So, Dr. Sinclair could have only known that he had delivered the future POTUS if he had, prior to his death, traveled forward in time. I guess, in this scenario, he was so concerned that the path to the future could be altered that he didn't enthuse to his family about his place in history.

There's only one doctor who fits that description, and he's from Gallifrey.
