It’s just stunning enough that an effort led by dentist/lawyer Orly Taitz and off-their-rocker lunatics won’t just die, but the birther movement continues to infiltrate what’s left of the Republican Party. The latest comes from Arizona:
White House aides are scoffing at a move in the Arizona legislature to force President Obama to show his birth certificate to get on the state’s ballot in 2012 for his likely re-election battle.
The Arizona House voted Monday by a 31-22 margin to require all presidential candidates to prove they were born in the United States in order to meet the constitutional requirement. The measure still has to be considered by the Arizona state Senate before it can become law.
When the issue first popped up during the 2008 presidential election, the Obama campaign released the then-senator’s birth certificate showing that he was born in Hawaii. In December 2008, after Obama was elected, the U.S. Supreme Court turned down an emergency appeal from a New Jersey man claiming Obama was ineligible to serve as president.
That highlighted portion is of particular importance. Of course, these 31 dipshits will say the law has nothing to do with Barack Obama, and is just an effort to secure our borders from Soviet interlopers and Manchurian candidates, but let’s call it what it is: stupid, racist, a waste of time and tax payer dollars, and retarded.
