Birthers move further Right – sue over Romney eligibility

Undeterred by documentary evidence and repeated judicial rejection, a group of conspiracy theorists who say President Obama was born in Africa have sued the California secretary of state to demand that she verify the eligibility of all presidential candidates before putting them on the November ballot…

The lawsuit filed by Republican primary write-in candidate John Albert Dummett Jr., Markham Robinson of the American Independent Party of California and five others also alludes to “questions concerning the eligibility” of Mitt Romney to vie for the role of commander in chief. The birthers’ lawyer, Gary Kreep of Ramona, said Wednesday that his clients wanted the issue of Romney’s eligibility raised because of his parents’ long residency in Mexico…

The suit asks the court to order California Secretary of State Debra Bowen to verify the eligibility of all candidates before placing their names on state ballots, including those nominated by the two major parties that have traditionally attested to the eligibility of their nominees…

Kreep, who heads a group calling itself the United States Justice Foundation, was also the attorney who brought the 2009 suit against Obama by the Rev. Wiley S. Drake, a Buena Park minister who once called on his First Southern Baptist Church flock to pray for Obama’s death

There isn’t much in the article that most of us don’t know – including just how crazy these clowns are about conspiracy theories. True to the breed, no judicial response will satisfy their dementia other than acquiescence. That’s a consistency we expect from nutballs.

People who believe in demons and the AntiChrist as politicians can’t be expected to be in touch with reality. Even the corruption and cronyism we hold in contempt is either OK – if it’s sufficiently bigoted and anti-democratic – or a plot constructed by evil spirits and Beelzebub. That their support is considered necessary by an opportunist Republican Party is disgusting and probably worthy only of laughter when we get far enough down the path of history to look back in amazement at these fools.
