The Non-Story That Won't Die

Jesus, I thought this whole Obama birth certificate flap would be over and done with by now. How many times is the wingnuttery going to beat this dead horse?

Not enough yet, apparently. Now no lesser an august personage than Alabama's Senator Richard Shelby (a Rethug, of course, do I have to say it?) scooping up some local headlines by trying to resurrect the belief that Obama is not a US citizen and therefore not entitled to be president.

Never mind that this has been settled long before, that Obama posted a copy of his birth certificate on his campaign website, that even if some long-term and tremendously complicated conspiracy was at work to try to make it appear that he was born in the US when he wasn't, it's still a moot point since his mother was, undeniably, an American citizen, and therefore US law deems that he is also an American citizen, regardless of where he was born.

Note that there aren't any major news organizations on that list. Well, obviously, that's because all the major news guys are northing more than a bunch of atheistic commie-symp crypto-socialists bent on the destruction of this country at the hands of our non-citizen non-christian sucking-up-to-islamo-fascists president.
