• Birthers Now Going After Mitt Romney in California

    Here's an interesting statistic that doesn't get nearly enough play in the lamestream media: 97 percent of all people with whom you currently disagree politically were actually born on foreign soil.

    Granted, there's no technical "truth" to that statistic, but that doesn't make it any less valid

    Undeterred by documentary evidence and repeated judicial rejection, a group of conspiracy theorists who say President Obama was born in Africa have sued the California secretary of state to demand that she verify the eligibility of all presidential candidates before putting them on the November ballot…

    The lawsuit filed by Republican primary write-in candidate John Albert Dummett Jr., Markham Robinson of the American Independent Party of California and five others also alludes to "questions concerning the eligibility" of Mitt Romney to vie for the role of commander in chief. The birthers' lawyer, Gary Kreep of Ramona, said Wednesday that his clients wanted the issue of Romney's eligibility raised because of his parents' long residency in Mexico.

    Ugh! I knew there was something vaguely "Mexican" about that guy.

    And, by "Mexican," I mean that we hold not completely similar opinions about how the U.S. Constitution should be read.

    You know, "Mexican."
