Honest to God, these birther conspiracists have no synapses firing at all, but they have enough money to burn to pay for a full-page ad in The Washington Times. This bit of business was purchased by ProtectOurLiberty.org. Hey – nice touch with the monkeys…not.
The hardly intelligible ad copy claims that under a 60-year-old British law, President Obama is a citizen of Britain and “is currently also a British protected person and/or a British citizen to this day.” The Center for American Progress’ Ian Millhiser points out that if this rule were actually applied to the presidency, every foreign nation would have the power to remove the President of the United States simply by granting the president citizenship.
The website promoted by the ad is run by Charles F. Kerchner, Jr., a plaintiff in a birther lawsuit filed against President Obama in New Jersey.
