Today In Crazy: Impeach Chief Justice Roberts For Swearing In Obama, Say Birthers
They’re at it again. The reliably unhinged crazies over at WorldNetDaily have a new axe to grind when it comes to their tiresome obsession with proving that President Obama is not legally entitled to serve in the office he’s held for four years and counting. Their latest gambit involves insisting that Chief Justice John Roberts is violating the Constitution by administering the oath of office to the president for the second time on January 21, and warning that he will be subject to “impeachment and eternal dishonor” if he does so.
Not being content with spouting such comically overwrought hyperbole, WND‘s Craige McMillan, in a melodramatic open letter to the Chief Justice, then buckles up the figurative straitjacket and hops aboard the express train to Loco-Land:
These things do not end well. One need only look to the aftermath of World War II and the Nuremberg Trials to see what awaits. Illegal wars. Illegal debts. Illegal laws. Will the rest of the Supreme Court’s justices, now knowing they are violating their own oath of office, continue the sham through a second presidential term? How, then, is the highest court of law in the nation any different than that pictorial proverb in Japan of the three monkeys who see no evil, hear no evil and speak no evil?
Oh my. That does sound serious. Too bad this particular trip to Batty Birtherville, despite its darkly turgid undertones, is about as legitimate as all the others. It’s the same old song and dance…
(snip ... ) Our laws are quite clear: If you spring from an American womb, you’re an American. Whether you’re born in Kenya,Panama or on Mars, if your mom was a born-and-bred, Kansas-cornfed American — like Stanley Ann Dunham Obama — you’re an American and thus eligible for the presidency. PERIOD.
Now for the love of all that’s holy and lucid, stop it.
