So Long, and Thanks for All the Tinfoil: SCOTUS Boots Obama Nationality Case

Just in time for the annual War On Christmas rush, SCOTUS boots the Obama nationality case:

The Supreme Court this morning unceremoniously declined to hear an emergency appeal from a man who claimed President-elect Barack Obama is not qualified for the presidency because he is not a "natural-born" citizen.

This was the Donofrio case. But, take heart, oh ye wingnuts of little faith, the Berg case still moves forward…for now.

Guess there’s always taking a stab at a world record if all else fails.

Jeebus, do these people have nothing else to do?  Alas…no
