Obama petition up at WND

Call me crazy, but if a valid birth certificate is required to suit up for the Little League World Series, seems to me your paperwork should be in order for a four-year gig as President of the United States of America.

That goofy Philip Berg's not-so-goofy idea to force the issue in court failed last month, so others have moved on to the petition phase.

Amazing what we have to go through just to get a little respect from the guy we just crowned king, isn't it?

"WASHINGTON – WND today announces the launching of an online petition designed to enlist the public's help in demanding evidence of Barack Obama's constitutional eligibility for the office of the presidency.

The electronic petition calls on all controlling legal authorities to take seriously the matter of where and when and to whom Obama was born and whether he qualifies as a "natural-born American citizen," according to Article 2, Section 1 of the Constitution."

In case you're wondering... The difference between this conspiracy theory and, say, Charlie Sheen/Rosie O'Donnell et al claiming the U.S. government perpetrated 9/11? We launched a commission and spent thousands of man hours exploring all the angles of that one, while Obama refuses to pick up the phone and make a simple call.

Just sign it. We're all screwed anyway. Might as well pretend we can do something about it.

Yay! Now the right roots can be just as stupid and crazy as the left was under Bush. And also just as irrelevant.

Grow up. Go support some small government candidates in your area, or whatever area they might have a chance to win in. Write letters to the editor supporting lower taxes and less spending. Inform your friends just how much of their money actually goes to dumb projects designed to keep corrupt politicians in office.

Hey Splash,

In the event that you are getting disappointed at your blog response, let me say that I prefer to read your stories to the ones at threedonia on the whole. Yours tend to be more interesting and less frivolous. Keep up the good work, dude.

Anonymous #1 - Hey, "stupid and crazy" worked in '08. How could we not give it a whirl?? (Though for the record, I did correctly ID Phil Berg as "goofy.")

Anonymous #2 - Thanks, man! (Or woman, as the case may be.)Actually, I just plugged into a spiffy new stat tracker... Turns out I'm getting far more hits per day than I assumed I was getting in a month!
