PostSubject: Lawmakers look dumb for reviving Obama hoax   Mon Feb 16, 2009 7:48 pm

I feel bad for Tennessee that they have such dumb ass rocks representatives.

In the Handy Guide for Newspaper Opinion Columnists, this is called shooting fish in a barrel. Or hitting a slow-pitched softball.

Four Tennessee state representatives, all Republicans, have signed up to be plaintiffs in a lawsuit against President Barack Obama, aimed at forcing him to prove he is a United States citizen by coughing up his birth certificate.


Let me just say what all the world is now thinking, including their fellow Republicans on the Hill: This is dumber than a box of rocks.

Tennessee Reps. Eric Swafford, Stacey Campfield, Glen Casada and Frank Nicely now have a giant "G" on their foreheads for "Gullible." The four were so willing to drink the craziest flavor of Kool-Aid, they've gotten themselves caught up in a national urban legend that has been thoroughly debunked.

What's next? A resolution honoring the Easter Bunny for doing such a great job with the annual colored egg delivery system? A proposed law asking these four to prove they have a brain?

Here's the deal: A California man plans to file a lawsuit challenging whether Obama was constitutionally eligible to be president. This issue has already had its day in court. The U.S. Supreme Court (you know, the one with a majority of conservative judges?) rejected the case. Which should kill it dead.

Legislature Looks Foolish

Ah, but Rep. Swafford has decided living in the Volunteer State means he should jump to the assistance of Captain Nutcake. He sent a letter pledging to be one of the plaintiffs.

"But wait!" you say. Rep. Swafford has every right to join any cause he wants, even if it makes him look like his cracker isn't buttered on the right side. And you would be right, except he didn't do it as "Eric Swafford, Pikeville citizen."

He sent the letter on his House of Representatives letterhead. Which really makes the General Assembly look even more foolish than, well, they already do this year. Ever the team players, Swafford's three buddies signed up for the snipe hunt too.

Casada, who is the House GOP caucus chairman, told a Tennessean reporter that he thinks Obama does have a U.S. birth certificate, but he should make it widely available so we can "move on."

Ahem, Rep. Casada? Sir? Obama's campaign did just that. A long, long time ago. They put it on their Internet site. Obama's mother was a U.S. citizen. His father was from Kenya.

The man was born on Aug. 4, 1961, in Hawaii. That, fellows, is a state. As in the "United STATES of America." It counts. See?

How on earth could the man have gotten a driver's license, Social Security card and the keys to the White House without being a U.S. citizen?

Even Snopes.com, the last word in what urban legends are true and which are false, says this one is just flat-out wrong.

So keep on pitching 'em, guys, to try to get the attention you seem so overly eager to receive.

But for the love of Pete. Could y'all try a hard, inside fastball next time?
