12. Ha. My favorite part of the opinion was a footnote wherein the Judge
said that ample opportunity for discovery had been available given the length and cost of the 2008 campaign. If I had to bet, that is similar to how the Supreme Court would rule. The people have determined that Obama is eligible and the Congress has agreed.

14. It's true - lower courts don't often make rulings that they think will get overturned.

17. ...by the Court of Appeals.

The Supreme Court has never overturned a District Court (unless through some procedural quirk).

Bryan Garner maintains that this is an important thing to remember.

4. After one of them pointed out that he was appointed by Dubya, they spout this gem:
"This judge was known to be a biased liberal. Evidently he only took the case so he could put Orly Taitz on notice."

A surprisingly sane freeper replied with this:

"A former Georgia Republican state senator from a conservative district was "known to be a biased liberal"? Do you have any evidence for that?

Evidently, you haven't a clue how cases are assigned in federal district court. This judge didn't "take" anything. It was assigned to him, probably randomly - although the chief district judge can assert some discretion when assigning cases, perhaps based on existing case load or a specific talent or area expertise that a particular district judge may possess. In this case, I haven't seen anything to suggest that the assignment wasn't entirely random. Again, if you have contrary evidence, please supply it."

13. "known to be a biased liberal" ... who was a former Republican state senator from a conservative
district ...

Folks, we may have the first Republican non-activist judge who actually reads the Constitution ... the first in a long long long time ...

7. There are things that are so stupid
that they transcend partisan politics. Too bad the freepers don't see that. For them anyone who disagrees with their narrow world view must be a member of the opposition party. Sad.

9. Oh dear. One of them goes on and on about the excellent Dred Scott opinion.
Is it 2 t's in Scott? And is it 1 D at the end of Dred? Can't get to my con law book right now.

11. Something tells me Taitz is not going to give up.
As longs as morans still send her money. I feel bad Taitz is getting rich off RW morans as for the morans I'm happy they're wasting their money.
