Certifiable! The real truth behind America's first...

Certifiable! The real truth behind Americas first Kenyan-born, madrassah-schooled, Malcolm X-love child president

Much as I try to respect (okay, tolerate) other peoples phobias because I am not phobia-free myself, I try to respect (okay, completely tune out) other peoples conspiracy theories because I am not conspiracy theory-free myself.

But damn.

All these mutating and sometimes conflicting theories about Barack Obamas birth location, citizenship status, parentage (Malcolm X is a nice touch but double-ups on Obamas claim to US citizenship), and religious affiliation make me want to kick some shins (and Jerome Corsis hairy tibias would be a good start).

Dont be surprised if one or more whackjob Republican electors assembled for the Electoral College
challenge Obamas status as a natural born citizen. The real surprise would be if Obamas eligibility to serve as president went unchallenged.

This is America, the land of impossible and impossibly complicated conspiracy theories. Does it matter if the authenticity of Obamas birth certificate has been confirmed several times over by people with the legal authority to make such declarations?

F**k no.

About one third of the American public believe that the US government had a passive if not an active role in the 9/11 attacks. Some of that one third believe,among other things, that the Twin Towers collapsed because of a controlled implosion; that the Pentagon was hit by a missile, not a plane, and that the 757 jet parts strewn all over the Pentagon lawn were dropped by conspirators from a circling C-130; and that the jets that crashed into the Twin Towers were not real but were sophisticated holograms whose appearance was timed to coincide with the controlled demolition of the buildings.

Compared with that, tweaking a few vital records in Hawaii, Kenya, Indonesia, and the US Department of State is mere childs play.
