Birth Certificate Will Not Show Virgin Birth!!

This would be hilarious if it were not so sad. Hillary supporters have joined the GOP-backed madness swirling around Barack Obama's birth certificate. In their zeal to defeat Barack Obama Hillary supporters have become the latest dupes in a GOP rumor mill discrediting Barack Obama's birthplace--thus making him ineligible to be President.
According to the Online Journal, GOP dirty tricks operatives visited Kenya to dig up any useful "dirt" on Barack Obama, Jr., and his late Kenyan father Barack Obama, Sr. And now they say there is a "smoking gun." About Obama's birth certificate.
Oooooooh. Sounds ominous doesn't it??
Get a grip folks! What they found is a birth certificate from the Kenyan city of Mombasa registering the birth of Barack Obama, Jr., on August 4, 1961. However, the registration is a common practice in African countries whose citizens abroad have families with foreign nationals.
Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, to his Ann Dunham of Wichita, Kansas, and Barack Obama, Sr., of Nyangoma-Kogelo, Kenya. Obama's parents were enrolled at the University of Hawaii. They divorced when Barack Obama was two years old.
Is it possible the GOP hopes to make the claim that Senator Obama is not eligible to become President of the United States because he was born in a foreign country, or, at the very least, plant the seed in the voters' minds that Obama is a foreigner even if the charge is false?
Of course, it is possible. And the fact that the state of Hawaii does not open birth records to the public has only fueled it. But what seems most deplorable to me is that in this latest effort to smear the presumptive Democratic Party nominee Hillary supporters are latching onto an obvious Republican smear.
Here's a little snarky take on the whole deal:
Top Ten Reasons Obama Won't Release His Birth Certificate
10. Despite the claims of his supporters, it was not technically a virgin birth.
9. Full name is Ayatollah Mubarack Hussein Obama-Khomeni bin Laden.
8. Actual birth date would reveal he's a Virgo, and those people are %#&*@! CRAZY.
7. Accidentally shredded it while going through his Rezko mortgage records.
6. Doesn't want NARAL to find out that his mom was pro-life.
5. Religion listed as "Muslim. Er, I mean Christian, yeah, that's the ticket! Christian!"
4. "You show the reporters the birth certificate, then they want to see the baby pictures, and after oohing and aahing for an hour, you're inviting them to stay for dinner, and... look, I've got a lot of stuff I need to get done, okay?"
3. Instead of being born at Leahi-Kai or Maluhia hospital, his mom picked Kokua Kalihi, and that place is just so ghetto.
2. His real father? Little Richard.

Wow. This seems reminiscent but less grounded in reality of the debate over whether McCain, as a person born in the Panama Canal Zone, is a "natural born citizen" of the United States. What is clear in both cases is that they had one parent who was a US citizen. Since citizenship is required for membership in the Senate, and neither of them has ever been naturalized, we can assume they are both natural-born citizens. This stuff is completely goo-goo and suggestive of the desperation of people in both camps to derail the process underway in their respective parties.

# I admit it, I liked #8.
And I thought 4 was funny too.
The virgin birth is priceless.

I'm getting sick of this.
I really think these are McCain Republicans in Clinton clothing.
I just cannot see any real supporter of Clinton voting for McCain.
I so don't get it.

I am not happy with voting for Obama. I understand being angry, upset, hurt about many things that happened in this season, primarily the O supporters hatefulness.
But I can't see punishing the whole country... world for that matter for spite.

That is insane.
Wouldn't it make more sense to band togetheer to create some clout to change the DNC, to force a womens issue on to the platform, or get involved in media reform?

Or even to write Hillary In would be more sensible and make more of a statement.
To vote for McCain is an insult to Hillary, an insult to women and being that its pretty clear we'll be bomb-bomb-bombing Iran with him as President its a sin against humanity.
Haven't we had enough?

This is why I believe these people were not Hillary supporters and just came in to stir up hatred and peel off Clinton supporters for McCain.
Think about it.
Who says I'll vote for McCain if Hillary isn't the nominee?
It just isn't logical.

I don't know anyone, even my 87 year old aunt who would do that.
She sees how nuts he is!
And whoa is he nuts.
Sure, write Hillary In, or just vote downticket, or don't vote... these I understand even if I may not agree (though some days... ohhhhh, some days.)but voting McCain.
These people have to be trolls (hate that term) who came in to do just what they are doing.
They saw how the Obama supporters were doing their bully thing, saw how upsetting it was and came in to agitate.

OK, taking off my tin foil hat now.

Just found you from Taylor Marsh.

So funny! It's hard to believe we have this debate about whether our two candidates left are even eligible. (though it's not really a debate on the Obama side, he's clearly a citizen).

And I thought that wouldn't happen until Ahnold ran for president.....
