The United States Supreme Court is going to decide whether or not to hear a case claiming that Barack Obama is not a U.S. citizen and therefore ineligible to serve as President of the United States.

If you thought Barack Obama’s clear rout over John McCain meant we’d be spared a third Electoral College melodrama—well, think again. This time, the argument is not over votes. It’s over Obama’s citizenship.

Thanks to the increased simplicity of online organizing and coverage in talk radio and fringe political Web sites, the citizenship crusaders have grown numerous enough to irritate people at every level of the presidential vote certification process. According to the Christian Science Monitor, the people questioning Obama’s citizenship are hitting electors as hard as the Gore activists ever did. Go to, and you, too, can contact one of the 538 electors at his or her home address after you read up on the latest doomed lawsuit.

They think he was born in Kenya. No, wait; Indonesia. His Hawaii birth certificate is a phony. Well, no, it’s not, but it’s not the real one; it’s his sister’s and his name is forged on it. Okay, he was born in Hawaii, but his mom returned to Indonesia and renounced her citizenship, which made young Barack a non-citizen. Or he has dual citizenship with Kenya. Or is it Freedonia?

Actually, these bat-shit crazies are as much fun to watch as a Sarah Palin Cliche Festival.
