Good Morning Bloggers - Well, once again I'm not surprised by the craziness of the Republican far right. The McCain campaign was bad enough, but the idea that they're still fighting to keep Barack Obama out of office is simply mind-blowing.
The Houston Chronicle, a fairly reputable newspaper, is reporting this morning that "the U.S. Supreme Court will consider Friday whether to take up a lawsuit challenging President-elect Barack Obama's U.S. citizenship, a continuation of a New Jersey case embraced by some opponents of Obama's election." This does NOT make the Supreme Court look good if it's true. The document was certified by a state government for heaven's sake.
So, they still think the birth certificate is a forgery. The birth certificate that was officially validated by the government of Hawaii, one of the fifty states. The conspiracy theorists are all up in arms because the governor of that beautiful state had the certificate sealed to protect it. They, of course, are reading that to mean that it's a forgery and should be authenticated by the US Government. Wow, that says a lot about states' rights.
It's fortunate that most legal experts say the appeal has very little chance of succeeding. Most observers believe the court will not overlook the fact that state OFFICIALS stamped it as authentic - something courts rely on every day to settle disputes.
Alan Keyes, who lost to Obama in the 2004 Illinois Senate race, is one of the plaintiffs. What the hell is your problem dude? Do you enjoy stirring crap everywhere you go? Your suit is a joke, which kind of makes you a joke. There, I've said it, YOU ARE A JOKE!
Hawaiian officials say the certificate is locked in a state vault to protect it. No matter what you think, they are the officials and you're not. They have the authority to call it authentic and to lock it up to protect it. GET OVER IT YOU FREAKIN LOSER! I say that to both Keyes and all you Republican idiots out there who keep wasting our time.
I think we Democrats need to get used to this crap. When you listen to the Republican crazies out there like O'Reilly, Hannity, Savage, Beck, it's obvious that we're going to have an irrational opposition for many years to come. They're going to continually pitch whatever dirt they can, just to see what sticks. The McCain campaign was a dirt throwing machine. Of course, they're blind to the fact that they all look like SCUM!
Barack is an American! Deal with it you weirdos! I guess the only answer is to work harder and talk louder about things Americans really care about. That should make help drown out their BS. I do have one prediction though. After living through the last eight years, I'm of the opinion that once everything is back on track, and people begin to feel comfortable about how things are going, they will once again start to listen to the crazy right.
Those guys always seem to benefit when things quiet down, and people begin to dwell on issues that divide us, instead of what matters. They feed on that division. It is obvious to me and many Americans that they are the bottom-dwelling scum. They mostly surface after we clean up. Just like mold in the real world, they grow on healthy bodies, turning it dark and slimy. Oh well, let's do our best to keep the mold away for as long as possible. Anybody have a good anti-fungal to use on Alan Keyes?
