The non-issue of Obama's confirmed American birth, evidenced by the official short-form birth certificate produced months ago, is back in the tabloids and in the courts. Everything-baiter Alan Keyes isn't satisfied and reputable (put McCain dick fingers around the adjective) Christian news outlets like World Net Daily happily hand him the conch:
The California Secretary of State should refuse to allow the state's 55 Electoral College votes to be cast in the 2008 presidential election until President-elect Barack Obama verifies his eligibility to hold the office, alleges a California court petition filed on behalf of former presidential candidate Alan Keyes and others.
The legal action today is just the latest is a series of challenges, some of which have gone as high as the U.S. Supreme Court, over the issue of Obama's status as a "natural-born citizen," a requirement set by the U.S. Constitution.
WND senior reporter Jerome Corsi even traveled to Kenya and Hawaii prior to the election to investigate issues surrounding Obama's birth. But his research and discoveries only raised more questions.
Yes, some of these challenges have gone as high as the U.S. Supreme Court - just high enough for the Supreme Court to say we wouldn't touch these spurious claims with Pinocchio's ten-foot nose.
You remember good ol' Alan Keyes, the "former presidential candidate," don't you? The GOP sacrificial lamb put up to slaughter in the 2004 Illinois senatorial election, where Obama gave him an absolute 70%-27% drubbing? Well, here are a few past blurts from that hole on Keyes's face to serve as a reminder:
On not congratulating Obama on his 2004 victory: I'm supposed to make a call that represents the congratulations toward the triumph of that which I believe ultimately stands for ... a culture evil enough to destroy the very soul and heart of my country? I cannot do this. And I will not make a false gesture.
On God's preferred candidate in the 2004 election: "Jesus wouldn't vote for Obama."
On homosexuality (and Dick Cheney's daughter's lifestyle): "Selfish hedonism."
By the way, I'm announcing my candidacy for President of the United States in 2012. However, I now withdraw my candidacy for President of the United States in 2012.

***UPDATE***: My past post on Phil Berg's shoddy lawsuit seeking the same relief as Keyes - dismissed by the 3rd Circuit in October. However, Berg continues to fight the opposite-of-good fight with this advertisement gathering pennies for his trifling cause, courtesy of our misguided friends at The Kansas Citian.
Now in fairness, the publisher of our blog-nemesis concedes his personal belief that Obama is a naturally born citizen of the United States. However, he gives a sounding board to the insane rantings of fringe-dwellers like Keyes or Berg because questions persist and apparently questions, lunatic or otherwise, are enough.
