Lawsuit Claims Obama Constitutionally Ineligible for the Presidency

I think it’s a work of art. It takes all those rumor emails about Obama and wraps them up into one neat little lawsuit. The point is to enjoin Obama and the DNC from going through with his nomination next week. Why now?

“I filed this action at this time,” Berg stated, “to avoid the obvious problems that will occur when the Republican Party raises these issues after Obama is nominated.”

That is getting so familiar.

The lawyer who sued is Philip J. Berg, certified nutcase. He’s a Clinton supporter, former gubernatorial and senatorial candidate, former chair of the Democratic Party in Montgomery (PA) County, former member of the Democratic State Committee, and former Deputy Attorney General of Pennsylvania. He’s also a Truther. Like all Truthers, he falls for the simplest of tricks. For example, he cites Wikipedia for some of his claims.

Added: In case I didn’t make that clear above, I think the lawsuit should be laughed out of court. The rumormongering about whether Obama is really enough of an American to run for president is pretty silly. As are the whispers about whether McCain counts as a “natural born” citizen.
