Freshman Rep. Raul Labrador (R-Idaho) relied on a little birther humor during his address at CPAC on Thursday morning, joking that he's an American citizen and has "the birth certificate to prove it."
Speaking on the diversity of the Republican party, Labrador, who was born in Puerto Rico, dropped the nod to the conspiracy theory suggesting President Barack Obama was born outside the United States.
"I was fortunate enough to be an American citizen by birth and I have the birth certificate to prove it," Labrador said to laughter and applause.
Labrador also ribbed House Speaker John Boehner for his super-tan skin, saying that while it could be said the party was made up of "three shades," Boehner's skin color provided the "fourth."
