To the surprise of virtually nobody, the Supreme Count, er … Court turned down the “emergency” appeal David Souter had rejected, but which Clarence “Me Too” Thomas rescued from the circular file:
# The Trail / Washington Post:
Supreme Court Declines to Hear Obama Nationality Case — The Supreme Court this morning unceremoniously declined to hear an emergency appeal from a man who claimed President-elect Barack Obama is not qualified for the presidency because he is not a “natural-born” citizen…
This has been circulating since last summer, and is not merely confined to ONE potential padded room occupant.

HIGH COURT TURNS DOWN OBAMA ELIGIBILITY CASE
… So, it’s all over? Donofrio’s case is, but, alas, he’s not the only one pursuing the issue. Robert Barnes notes that there are two related cases filed at the Supreme Court — neither of which have been considered by the justices — in addition to many more suits in the lower courts on the same issue. The “most celebrated” of the suits was filed by Philip J. Berg of Lafayette Hill, Pa., who continues to insist that Obama was born in Kenya, and might possibly be a citizen of Indonesia….
To which I note:
Well, look. The type is clearly justified, but no typewriters could justify in 1961. If you look closely, you’ll see Dan Rather’s fingerprints all over it.
And, there still is an actual Flat Earth Society. To the extent that solipsism doesn’t rule o’er all, the evidential case is pretty well cut and dried:
- Fact Check DOT Org (updated)
- Obama’s birth announcement in the Honolulu Advertiser*
- The larger page view of the announcement page*
And why are we wasting our time on this trivia when so many new crop circles require immediate investigation?
[* It should be noted that these were dug up by a blog team trying to prove Obama WASN’T born in the USA. See the FactCheck article. ]
