Dumber Conspiracy Theory: Government Cover-Up in Boston or Obama's Fake Birth Certificate?

New Hampshire Republican State Representative Stella Tremblay wants Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's "Cold Case Posse" -- which she calls one of the only "unbiased" groups out there -- to investigate a potential government cover-up of the Boston bombing.

Arpaio, who is unqualified to investigate the validity of President Obama's birth certificate, is equally unqualified, or perhaps more unqualified in the field of investigating the bombing of a marathon in Boston.

"All I'm asking is for a full investgiation, not the FBI, but some unbiased . . . there's two unbiased groups -- like the Cold Case Posse or someone else," Tremblay said on a Boston radio show.

That got us thinking -- what's a dumber thought: That secret government agents decided to murder three people by planting a couple bombs at the Boston Marathon, then pinning it on a couple Chechens, or that a Kenyan citizen named Barack Obama decided he wanted to be President of the United States, so he enlisted some people to make a fake birth certificate for him to do so?

Let's get your opinion: Which one's dumber?
