From Atlas Shrugs some interesting news to almost sink your teeth into if you voted for the other guy (gal):
SCOTUS SOUTER TELLS OBAMA TO PRODUCE BIRTH CERTIFICATE DECEMBER 1 UPDATED: /OR NOT
Fantastic, right? By now you've heard about Berg's lawsuit against 0bama to prove for once & for all that he's a U.S. citizen eligible to serve as POTUS. The case was dismissed from federal court in Philly on the basis that Berg had no standing to bring the case. Which begs the question, if a United States citizen, a voter, does not have the standing to ask a candidatge who is asking for their and millions of other votes to be POTUS, who does? Berg took it further up to SCOTUS and on his website announced:
Press Release 11-07-08: US Supreme Court awaits response to Berg Writ of Certiorari from Obama, DNC and co-defendants
Saturday, 08 November 2008 04:23 administrator Main - News For Immediate Release: - 11/07/08
U. S. SUPREME COURT AWAITS RESPONSE TO BERG'S WRIT OF CERTIORARI FROM OBAMA, DNC and Co-DEFENDANTS (Contact information and PDF at end) (Lafayette Hill, Pennsylvania – 11/07/08) - Philip J. Berg, Esquire, the Attorney who filed suit against Barack H. Obama challenging Senator Obama’s lack of “qualifications” to serve as President of the United States filed a Writ of Certiorari in the United States Supreme Court on October 30, 2008, requesting review of the United States District Court, Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Judge Surrick’s Dismissal of Philip J. Berg’s lawsuit against Barack H. Obama, Jr., the DNC and the other co-Defendants. Accordingly, the U. S. Supreme Court has set dates in which Barack Obama, the DNC and all co-Defendants are to respond to the Writ, which is on or before December 1, 2008.
Mr. Berg remarked today, “I look forward to receiving Defendant Obama's response to the Writ and am hopeful the U. S. Supreme Court will review Berg v. Obama. I believe Mr. Obama is not a constitutionally-qualified natural-born citizen and is ineligible to assume the office of President of the United States.”
But... Geller at A.S. analyzed this a bit more carefully and noted in her update the following factoid:
In the Berg case, it is only after SCOTUS grants the writ of cert that SCOTUS will take up the issue of whether Obama has to produce the birth certificate. That's the thing Berg is asking for, and right now that's not even being considered by SCOTUS, they're still on the issue of whether to take the case or not.
They say patience is a virtue. This unrelated quote works well for me: “We need to do ourselves justice as well as this document justice, ... A lot of issues were raised here this evening. We need to get these matters clarified. The 90 days does not bother me. Take the time to do it correctly.” - Bill Bell.
...and more election hijinks.
In the past day or so we watched the continuation of the Election Day results: Indiana moved from the blue column to the red column by 100,000 votes for McCain, Missouri appeared to give McCain a win by 6000 votes with all precincts reporting, and Al Franken & his supporters showed Minnesotans that they knew the game when he came up short in votes but subsequent recounts kept shifting suddenly-found and suddenly-losts votes into his column:
Exhausted county officials had accidentally entered 24 for Franken instead of 124 when the county's final votes were tallied at 5:25 Wednesday morning.
Everyone knows it's hard working counting to 124 when you work for the government. With every new digit you have to fill out a hard form in triplicate then email/scan/pdf/blackberry/text/messenger/dispatch and blog each individual vote before you move on to the next vote.
