Wingnuts take notice.
President Obama is a natural born citizen. Discussion over. It's time to turn your attention to his sneaky plan to conscript your sons and daughters into his private police force, take away your assault weapons, and force you to make pesto sauce out of kittens.
Another lawsuit challenging President Obama's eligibility to be president has been thrown out of court:
WASHINGTON — A federal judge on Thursday threw out a lawsuit questioning President Barack Obama's citizenship, lambasting the case as a waste of the court's time and suggesting the plaintiff's attorney may have to compensate the president's lawyer.
"In an argument popular on the Internet and taken seriously practically nowhere else, Obama's critics argue he is ineligible to be president because he is not a "natural-born citizen" as the Constitution requires.
In response last summer, Obama's campaign posted his Hawaiian birth certificate on its Web site. But the lawsuit argues it is a fake and that Obama was actually born in his father's homeland of Kenya, even though Hawaiian officials have said the document is authentic.
"This case, if it were allowed to proceed, would deserve mention in one of those books that seek to prove that the law is foolish or that America has too many lawyers with not enough to do," U.S. District Judge James Robertson said in his written opinion.
The lawsuit didn't even use Obama's legal name but called him "Barry Soetoro," the name he went by while attending elementary school in Indonesia. It's one of many that has been filed claiming Obama is ineligible to serve as president.
Robertson ordered plaintiff's attorney John Hemenway of Colorado Springs, Colo., to show why he hasn't violated court rules barring frivolous and harassing cases and shouldn't have to pay Obama's attorney, Bob Bauer, for his time arguing that the case should be thrown out."

But some people just won't let go of this bone. Here are some choice comments from the above link on Judge Robinson's decision:
"Of course, if being raised and "mentored" (buggered, I'd guess, in Ayers' case, based on his literature) by Muslims and Communists and rising to power in the Chicago machine isn't a bad thing, why should anyone even research some stupid Constitutional issue?"
"Bullshit. I call shenanigans."
But this one's my favorite:
"I think he's hiding the birth certificate because it lists Frank Marshall Davis as the father. That's based on the fact that he looks like Davis, Davis took an interest in him while he was growing up, Davis wrote a semi-autobiographical book where he talks about nailing young white chicks in Hawaii, he looks nothing like Obama Sr, and he shows no signs of being bright enough to be the kid of a black guy smart enough to get into a Harvard grad program in the early 60s.But he could just be a coke snorting communist who cheated his way into the presidency and is now busily destroying America."
