My One and Only Post on Birther BS

The NYT could have saved several 100 words and just published this instead.  Clicky clicky to compare/contrast

Yep. That pretty much says it all.

ZOMG NO WAIS!!!1

You gotta know when to fold 'em.

In a move that surprised next-to-no one, SCOTUS declined to hear Jet Schizo’s emergency citizenship appeal against President-elect Obama:

The court did not comment on its order Monday rejecting the call by Leo Donofrio of East Brunswick, N.J., to intervene in the presidential election. Donofrio says that since Obama had dual nationality at birth — his mother was American and his Kenyan father at the time was a British subject — he cannot possibly be a “natural born citizen,” one of the requirements the Constitution lists for eligibility to be president.

But don’t get too comfortable just yet, kids:

There are two other cases at the Supreme Court, neither of which has been scheduled for consideration. The most celebrated is filed by Philip J. Berg of Lafayette Hill, Pa. There are others still at lower court levels.

Berg argues that Obama was born in Kenya, not Hawaii as Obama has said and Hawaii officials confirm. Alternately, Berg argues that Obama may have renounced his citizenship as a boy in Indonesia, where he lived for a time with his mother and stepfather.

Dude, seriously. Give it up. You know that you’re beyond the fringe when even David fucking Horowitz thinks you’ve lost your crackers.

American Made.

Y’know, I truly do appreciate the effort that went into AJ Strata ‘s unfortunately necessary debunking of the ‘forged Obama birth certificate’ smear that has apparently been burning up the Freeper/talk radio circuit, but I’m once again left wondering what the fuck is up with the online right’s ongoing obsession with typefaces, fonts and border space (to say nothing of dishonest, hack-tastic wankery in general)?
