Zombie quality stupid

I fully expect that sometime in 2011, there will be a "documentary" broadcast on whatever the 2011 equivalent of Sinclair Broadcasting is then. The subject? President Barack Obama's citizenship.

A U.S. soldier on active duty in Iraq has called President Obama an "impostor" in a statement in which he affirmed plans to join as plaintiff in a challenge to Obama's eligibility to be commander in chief....

"As an active-duty officer in the United States Army, I have grave concerns about the constitutional eligibility of Barack Hussein Obama to hold the office of president of the United States," wrote Scott Easterling in a "to-whom-it-may-concern" letter.
Great, buddy. You keep having those concerns. President Obama is busy actually doing stuff right now.

I have to assume that the reason behind these claims is an attempt to do to President Obama what many of the same people tried to do to President Clinton--undermine his legitimacy with a wide enough segment of the population so as to make it difficult for him to govern. With Clinton it was an imaginary illegitimate black child, a land deal where he and his wife lost money, drug smuggling into a small Arkansas airstrip, state troopers running interference for him while he fooled around (okay that one might have some legs), and a so-called trail of bodies of people he had killed because they got in his way.

With Kerry, they went after his war record, and they played he-said he-said games that turned a heroic war record into a morass of lies--all told by the Orwellian Swift Boat Veterans for Truth.

With Obama, it's the name and the Kenyan father that makes for the natural target, and since these people don't seem to have anything better to do with their days than spin fantastic stories and file frivolous lawsuits, that's what they're doing. It doesn't matter that the story makes less sense than the plot of the bastard child of National Treasure and The DaVinci Code--the more insane the better for these people. I guess they're banking on the whole "it's so crazy it can't possibly be made up" mindset. I'm amazed that Glenn Beck hasn't had them on yet. Maybe he's waiting until he thinks the time is right.
