Quote of the Day

Anne Rice:

“I quit being a Christian. I’m out. In the name of Christ, I refuse to be anti-gay. I refuse to be anti-feminist. I refuse to be anti-artificial birth control. I refuse to be anti-Democrat. I refuse to be anti-secular humanism. I refuse to be anti-science. I refuse to be anti-life. In the name of … Christ, I quit Christianity and being Christian. Amen.”

Even Hawaii birth won’t make Obama legitimate

You really have to admire the World Nut Daily for it’s sheer persistence and distilled nuttery.

President Obama may not fit the constitutional eligibility requirement that stipulates only “natural born” citizens can serve as U.S. president, conclude the authors of a recently released book.

An investigation by the authors found that according to correspondence from the original framers of the Constitution as well as multiple Supreme Court rulings and the legal writings that helped establish the principles of the Constitution, Obama is not eligible to serve as president since his father was not a U.S. citizen.

With nearly 900 endnotes, the book, “The Manchurian President: Barack Obama’s Ties to Communists, Socialists and Other Anti-American Extremists,” was written by WND senior reporter Aaron Klein and researcher Brenda J. Elliott.

The authors concluded Obama may not be eligible regardless of his place of birth. The book recommends further legislative and judicial debate.

It is undisputed that Obama’s father was not a U.S. citizen,” wrote Klein, “a fact that should have led to congressional debate about whether Obama is eligible under the United States Constitution to serve as president.”

I wonder if they’re going to posthumously impeach a few other past presidents with foreign born parents?

“There are some people that if they don’t know, you can’t tell them.” – Louis Armstrong

Ok Cynics, what is something you don’t know no matter how much you’re told about it.

I don’t understand how anybody could actually enjoy drinking beer. Vile stuff. I don’t understand how anybody could really enjoy a Cormac McCarthy novel. (Actually, The Road wasn’t awful, just criminally overhyped). And I don’t know how anybody could voluntarily go camping for the fun of camping. *shudder*
