Kenya Believe Obama's An American?
You've gotta love the Birth Certificate Troofers, just like the Trig Troofers. They've been shot down again at the Supreme Court
. Actually this isn't a Birth Certificate case, this is an even odder one, where the plaintiff claimed that Obama isn't a natural born citizen even though he was born in the USA because his father was a British subject. That's even nuttier than the Birth Certificate one.
As pointed out by Charles at LGF
, the Birth Certicate Troofers all claim they are defending the constitution. Simple question: How many of these constitution defenders have seen President Bush's birth certificate?
This is Sore Loserman territory, as David Horowitz points
It is not conservatism; it is sore loserism and quite radical in its intent. Respect for election results is one of the most durable bulwarks of our unity as a nation. Conservatives need to accept the fact that we lost the election, and get over it; and get on with the important business of reviving our country’s economy and defending its citizens, and — by the way — its Constitution.
If anything, Horowitz is too kind to the Birthers by granting them their premise. Look, if there were any real evidence that Obama was born outside the USA, I'd say that the constitution has to be upheld. But there is no such evidence, and there is plenty of evidence that he was born in Hawaii.
Michelle Malkin, Captain Ed Morrissey, and many other conservative bloggers have pointed out how nutty all this is. But we're all in on the plot, or have drunk the Obama Kool-Aid.
