Wingnuttery to a higher dimension: Obama’s citizenship

May 20, 2009

I can’t believe there are still people out there who argue that President Obama is not eligible to be president, and who still refuse to look at the evidence.

Here’s a measure of how far down in the barrel they have to scrape to keep this issue alive:  Check out this blog by a New Mexico paralegal who is a source for World Net Daily.  A nation loaded with good Constitutional scholars in law schools, history departments, political science departments and public affairs and management schools, and WND finds an obscure paralegal in New Mexico instead, to get the lowdown on U.S. law on citizenship.

There’s a sucker born every minute, but WND’s philosophy is that anyone can act like a sucker if you work hard enough at it.  WND is working very hard.

Supreme Court won’t review challenge to Obama

December 15, 2008

The Associated Press reports that the Supreme Court refused for the second time to take a second case challenging the eligibility of Barack Obama to be president.

Cort Wrotnowski alleged that Obama’s father’s British citizenship made Obama’s birth citizenship different from “natural born” citizenship as the Constitution says the president must be.

There was no comment on the case from the Court, just a note that the appeal was not taken.

Tinfoil hat concessionaires on Capitol Hill were disappointed.

In other news, electors are meeting today to elect Obama president.

Baltimore Sun: Obama eligibility challenge likely to be refused

December 7, 2008

Responsible media, generally called in denigrating styel “mainstream media” by many of our more nutty nut cases, have held off in commenting on the Supreme Court’s position on the case against Obama’s election discussed in conference last Friday, December 5.

Except the Baltimore Sun, which notes as the Bathtub did, that the appeal is likely to go no further.

We won’t know for sure until tomorrow.

Meanwhile, Eric Zorn at The Chicago Tribune says “enough already,” and calls for the conservative moonbats to give up the nasty, fruitless calumny.  (Also see this Tribune story.)
