Yeah, But...

I've got a friend who emails IN BIG BOLD FACE 18 POINT TYPE once or twice a week the latest news about the Obama ineligibility rumor. This guy is taking it to court, that blog has found a smoking gun, that group wants an accounting, etc. etc.

I had really come to the conclusion that it's all sort of the black helicopter, New World Order, 9/11 Truthers, holocaust deniers sort of fringe group. If you read the releases in a vacuum you believe it is critically important. If you take it in the context of a broader world view, then you ignore it.

Sure, many of us would like the Messiah to be revealed as the sort of fraud and charlatan we know he is at core, but we also recognize that it isn't going to happen very soon. It's going to be a long, slow, painful and incredibly damaging process.

Now here's something on the topic:

A Majority of Americans Want to Know

Apparently it isn't just a narrow fringe, it is now an awareness of a lot of folks. Would it be so difficult to qualm the fears? Would it be a national security disaster for the Bamster to prove his natural citizenship? Could his undergraduate grades be worse than Al Gore's? Did he really renounce what citizenship he had from wherever to qualify for an Indonesian education? Did he ever write anything publishable when he was editor of the Harvard Law Review? Who is he really?

Inquiring minds apparently don't want to know very badly. Nothing is going to come of it. But, a President Biden would be a real laugh-a-minute sort of experience, wouldn't it?
