The latest from lollypop land

Now the birthers say they have a copy of Obama's birth certificate from Kenya.

How ever when a closer look is taken, several issues arise that question it's authenticity. The document lists Obama's parents as Barack Hussein Obama and Stanley Ann Obama, formerly Stanley Ann Dunham. The date of birth is listed as August 4th, 1961 and the hospital is listed as Coast General Hospital in Mombasa, Kenya.

Now no doctor is listed but the alleged certificate is signed by the deputy register of Coast Province, Joshua Simon Oduya. It's supposedly a certified copy of the original, its dated February 17th, 1964.

Problem number one with the document, is the February 17th, 1964 date on it. Kenya gained Independence on December 17th, 1963, yes, but it was not declared a Republic until December 17th of 1964. It shows Kenya as being a republic on the alleged birth certificate from 1964 but Kenya was not a Republic till December of that year. Huh? You may be asking how could a birth certificate be issued from a Kenyan Republic in February1964, when no such Kenyan Republic existed in February 1964?

The biggest problem is that the hospital listed in Mombasa was part of Zanzibar at the time.

Ann Coulter has called Taitz and the birthers "Cranks", Karl Rove has come out and said the birth certificate released by Taitz is "probably a forgery". Everyone from Bill O'Reilly to Michael Steele, have said Obama is a citizen and the birthers need to give it up.

Hat tip to one Ruben Sarmiento of the Examiner for hitting the history books on this one.

Then there's the case of one John McCain. On a recent news program he was being interviewed. One of the questions was about the republican shrinking popularity with hispanics. McCain proceeded to say that the republican party needs to do a lot to regain hispanic support. Sooo what does McLaim do? He decides to vote against Sonya Sotomayer. Way to go McShame nothing says support like voting against what is probably one of the most qualified hispanic candidates for the position.

Wonder if we can get John to go hunting with Dick Cheney. John would shoot himself in the foot and Cheney would shoot him in the face.
Lastly we have the childish disruptions of the Democratic town hall meetings sponsored by a republican DC lobbying group (the outbreaks not the meetings). Gee wasn't it just a few years back that anyone who even asked an out of line question was escorted out by police?

The birthers are hoping to make their wishful thinking come true. They seem to be operating under the ole axiom, "Repeat a lie often and long enough and it becomes the truth."

Demeur said...

That would be the right axiom if they didn't keep changing the lies. To make stuff up only works if the story is nearly the same every time. From what I've heard all that they say can easily be disproved.

I was watching this on Obermann. He showed it! Everything was wrong on it the signer was a perfume name or something and the document number included his age. He like me and you just laughed. It was not even a good fake!

Murkans are so mushy-headed, I'm not sure it's even a case of repeating the lie, simply muddying up the waters until everything under the sun is an opaque swamp of toxic goo.

Yup, it's just politics of distraction.

Somewhere, there is a yacht owner, who has a chauffeur for his Rolls Royce, and a pilot for his private jet, who is counting his buyout money; waiting for the entire country to go for sale so that he can buy it and declare all of us as illegal aliens with 24 hours to get out.

hehehe Just me pretending.

Franky, my dear, I don't give a fuck. I don't give a crap where he was born, he made it to the preznut of the United States, one fucked up county that that is failing.

I like the man but anyone wanting to be preznut of this country has really low or misdirected ambitions. I wouldn't run this country with it's political system if they begged me to.

Hey, got any bombs I can borrow?

BBC said...

Once upon a time, none of these states were states. Doesn't that pretty much make it all invalid?

I don't give a fuck about his birth place, hey, Costa Rica is looking pretty good now, you can live well there on a grand a month without all the bullshit here.

Two grand a month and you can live like a king.

She is very close to being spot on, only it's not just one yacht owner, but a good old rich boys group.

BBC said...

But they won't want us to get out, they want us to be their low paid slaves in a sense being as we abolished slavery.

I suppose of course that they could retract that once they got control.

Those town hall disruptors, don't give a crap about the first amendment, no freedom of speech for you.

They probably think there is only one amendment, and it's called the second amendment.

An old saying goes, "Idle hands are the devil's playthings."

The political/Christian/Confederate Southern right is shot through with hotheaded know-it-alls, bullies and loudmouthed yahoos. Even if only instinctively, the GOP and Christian-right leaders realize they need to keep these people occupied, give them something they can get revved up by and go on and on about.

The birth certificate nonissue served the purpose for awhile. The powers that be on the right are probably already at work on the next conspiracy-theory or whisper-campaign ugliness.

Face it, between their talk-radio "personalities" and bloggers, there's a huge hungry mouth with an insatiable appetite for reputation-eroding lies, distortions, rumors, innuendo and theories. Feed it they will because feed it they must.
