To start out the week

With more Republican idiocy.

One example:
For months now, dead-ender conservatives have been trying in vain to nullify the results of the presidential election by inisting that Barack Obama is not a natural-born U.S. citizen. Never mind that he obviously is, and never mind that every attempt to challenge his citizenship so far has been shot down in flames. Still the wingnuts persist in their doomed quest to unseat the Prez. And last week they got some good news - according to The Tennessean:
Several Tennessee lawmakers have signed on to a legal action intended to force President Barack Obama to turn over his birth certificate and other documents to prove his citizenship, an effort rejected by the U.S. Supreme Court in an earlier case.Tennessee Reps. Eric Swafford, Stacey Campfield, Glen Casada and Frank Niceley have all agreed to be plaintiffs in a planned legal action by a Russian immigrant in California who has challenged whether Obama meets constitutional criteria to be president.
Apparently the plan is to throw any kind of crap they can find onto the tracks to try and derail Obama.

Good to see they think of their party first and their country last. Because staying in power is so much more important than preventing another Great Depression.

Obama’s stealing the census from Congress has suddenly awakened and enraged the Republicans. Maybe this will arouse them as well to challenge Obama for stealing the Presidency itself. They surely know he is not an Article 2 “natural born citizen” (which is more than merely being a 14th Amendment “citizen”) by virtue of either Obama’s birth to a dad of Kenyan/British citizenship or birth in Kenya itself — as manifested by his unwillingness to supply his long form birth certificate now under seal.

I see. Obama has a driver's license, a Social Security card, ran for state office and the Senate. In all this time he had a faked birth certificate? And the Supreme Court, heavily Republican and very conservative, laughed off the earlier lawsuit?

Dream on, sir.

Ted, I can't quite see from here... are your eyes brown, or are you a quart low?

Stumbled on to one wingnut thread, Steve, where the presumption was that when Obama was proved to be non-native born, McCain would become president, not Biden.

I guess they get to chant 'Not my president' for eight years, too....

I also saw 'Ted' had posted this rant on several blogs he googled. Looking for like-minded people?

I think there are about 28% left....

The birth certificate nonsense.

Another right wing wet dream that shall remain just that.
