Alan Keyes has latched onto the bigfoot theory that Barack Obama may not be a natural born US citizen, and has filed a suit in California Superior Court to postpone certifying the state’s electoral votes until someone can provide proof of Obama’s citizenship… in spite of assorted groups, including FactCheck.org and mythbusting website Snopes have already backed the claim. The American Independent Party and other groups have joined the suit.
NBC Augusta has also posted a copy of the birth certificate.
What’s surprising is that it seems every time one of these whackball claims that Obama is not a natural born citizen, a new, sometimes made up, challenge to his legitimacy arise. After a copy of a birth certificate was presented, and verified, conspiracy theorists claimed it didn’t count because it wasn’t an original. Then, after FactCheck wrote that they had seen an even touched the original in Hawaii, the nutjobs then claimed FactCheck was in cahoots with Obama over the whole deal. Some tin foil hat folks, conceding the birth certificate was real, and that Obama was born in the US, went so far as to claim that because Obama had also gained Kenyan citizenship during his youth, he was no longer considered a natural born citizen… if you believe this, then you probably also believe there’s a trick to regain your virginity.
But, Keyes has learned over the past 8 years that if you tell a mistruth enough times, more people are bound to believe it.
