The Birthers ride again!

Today World Nut Daily announces a new target for the Obama Birth Truthers, that group of conspiracy theorists who believe that a Hawaii birth certificate isn't, well, a Hawaii birth certificate and that Obama was actually born in Upper Africanistan or Malaysia or who knows where. This target is: Senator Mel Martinez (R) of Florida, who had the audacity to say that if the people of the United States of America vetted Obama's eligibility for office (twice!) by voting him, that's the end of story -- Obama is President.

How dare he say that in a democracy it's the voters, not some unelected judge, who should determine who is President! Why, next thing you know, he'll say that the government should represent the will of the people, not the will of a small group of unelected oligarchs who buy and sell legislators. The nerve of him!

An apology from Senator Martinez for accidentally stating that America should be a democracy will be forthcoming shortly...

-- Badtux the Snarky Penguin


  1. Even if...and that's a big IF...he were born outside the US, his mother was a natural born citizen, giving Obama dual citizenship which at the age of 18 he would be able to CHOOSE his citizenship.

  2. The apology will be forthcoming as soon as Rush gets on the issue. THAT'S what it takes top make a Repig see the error of its ways.


Ground rules: Comments that consist solely of insults, fact-free talking points, are off-topic, or simply spam the same argument over and over will be deleted. The penguin is the only one allowed to be an ass here. All viewpoints, however, are welcomed, even if I disagree vehemently with you.

WARNING: You are entitled to create your own arguments, but you are NOT entitled to create your own facts. If you spew scientific denialism, or insist that the sky is purple, or otherwise insist that your made-up universe of pink unicorns and cotton candy trees is "real", well -- expect the banhammer.
