Orly Taitz, a California dentist,lawyer, and shameless self-promoter, has been in court (yet again!) trying to get somebody (anybody) to understand her argument that Barack Obama is not the legitimate President of the United States - regardless of what his birth certificate (even the long form) and local newspaper announcements from the time of his birth would try to have the American sheeple believe. Barack Obama, you see, was born in Kenya and is therefore ineligible to serve as President because the Constitution says that the President must have been born in this country. He was born in Kenya because Orly Taitz says he was born in Kenya!
(Reality Check: Contrary to Ms. Taitz's never-ending delusion, Barack Obama was born in the United States. John McCain, the man Mr. Obama defeated for the Presidency, was born in Panama. But hey, her issue is not with McCain.)
This week Ms. Taitz has been in court in Georgia arguing to keep the President's name off of the Georgia ballot. She managed to get him subpoenaed, but the President wisely decided not to perform in her circus. Should the suit be successful - it is Georgia, after all - and his name is not permitted to go on the ballot, the matter will be referred to the Federal courts in a matter of nano-seconds where it will be quickly rectified.
Ms. Taitz, who has the tenacity and staying power of a good case of genital herpes, has been beating this particular dead horse for three years now. She tried to parlay her "fame" into a statewide office in California, but could not even win the Republican primary election. She is currently making noises about running against Diane Feinstein for her California Senate seat - a move that would undoubtedly thrill the veteran senator because of the ease of which she would win reelection! One thing is certain however, Ms. Taitz will never run for President because she was born in the Soviet Union one year and twenty-six days after Barack Obama was born in Hawaii.
Last week's case in Georgia was argued before a crowd of about 100 individuals described by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution as mostly "older white Americans." The newspaper failed to mention whether they doffed their hoods and ball caps when the judge entered the room, but one must hope that being of the "older" generation they were respectful. I know I always am!
