Whether you believe that the Republicans will self-destruct in November or not, the Birther component of the anti-Obama campaign will never, never end unless the people who continue to spew this nonsense are actually made to pay a price.
A judge has ordered President Barack Obama to appear in court in Atlanta for a hearing on a complaint that says Obama isn’t a natural-born citizen and can’t be president.
It’s one of many such lawsuits that have been filed across the country, so far without success. A Georgia resident made the complaint, which is intended to keep Obama’s name off the state’s ballot in the March presidential primary.
An Obama campaign aide says any attempt to involve the president personally will fail and such complaints around the country have no merit.
The hearing is set for Thursday before an administrative judge. Deputy Chief Judge Michael Malihi on Friday denied a motion by the president’s lawyer to quash a subpoena that requires Obama to show up.
If the President shows up, every other state GOP machine will file similar complaints with friendly judges and he’ll have to show up there as well. If the President ignores the complaints, it will “prove he has something to hide” and feed the nasty e-mail whisper campaign that basically hasn’t stopped since early 2008. The sinister point of all this is not to prove or disprove anything, but to so demoralize voters that they’ll entertain the notion that if the Republicans win, all this idiocy will go away and that the GOP will behave themselves again.
It’s complete bullshit, of course. All of it. The idiocy was always there and surrender by the electorate is the only way the GOP wins with their current field of cartoon villain mouth-breathing doucheknockers. But that’s the point: no matter how many times the President personally staples his birth certificate to people’s foreheads, they’ll never believe him. Jesus Christ could descend from the sky with John Wayne’s pet T-Rex that’s piloting the Millennium Falcon, during halftime at the Super Bowl, grab the mic while Sam Elliott hands him his own mustache and say “You guys, he was born in Hawaii, knock this crap off already” and they would wonder how POTUS managed to brainwash America and the world into seeing such a perfect simultaneous mass hallucination. They would in fact blame fluoridated water. I shit you not.
Almost enough to drive a guy to drink.
