More evidence that Obama may be legally barred from the presidency:

Jorge Baro was hired by WND to investigate issues related to Obama’s birth amid allegations the Democrat does not meet the Constitution’s requirement that a president be a “natural born citizen.” Baro’s affidavit documents an interview his staff conducted with Beatrice Arakaki, who has lived at 6075 Kalanianaole Highway in Honolulu since before Obama was born….

Arakaki told Baro’s investigators she had no recollection of Obama being born or of the family living next door having a black child born to a white mother.

I tend to doubt this will ever come to anything, since both the White House and the Congress have made it quite clear that they consider both the Constitution and federal law to be entirely optional. What I’ve found most interesting about this situation is that since the federal court system and the Supreme Court have resolutely refused to consider the facts concerning Obama’s ability to be sworn in as a lawful president, there’s nothing to prevent Arnold Schwarzenegger or any other foreigner from running for the office in the future. No amount of public knowledge will matter if there isn’t a single party with court-approved standing to question any candidate’s legitimacy.

The end, she is nigh

If this isn’t a harbinger of apocalypse, it’s hard to know what would be:

Tarvaris Jackson’s strong performance in relief of injured starter Gus Frerotte on Sunday earned the Vikings quarterback NFC offensive player of the week honors on Tuesday.

Only Brad Childress would be more pleased than me to see the Tarvaris Jackson Experiment turn out to be a surprise success. And he has had a pair of really nice games, but then, Detroit and Arizona aren’t quite Baltimore and Tennessee.

And speaking of Tennessee, even though Brian Westbrook and the Tennessee DEF failed to rack up their usual points, Green Bay gave me just one more reason to hate them by failing to show up against one of the league’s worst passing defenses. Two first-place finishes in three years, but not a single playoff win. My only consolation is that the turning down the big Manning/Portis trade wouldn’t have made any difference.

So, the VPFL championship game will feature second-place Alamo City against the fourth-place Redbeards. Dammit.

Destroying the village

In order to “save” it:

“I’ve abandoned free-market principles to save the free-market system,” Bush told CNN television, saying he had made the decision “to make sure the economy doesn’t collapse.”

That’s almost as logically coherent as the insistence that temperatures dropping on a global scope is evidence of global warming. I find myself beginning to be astonished, when suddenly I recall that most people truly are idiots. Not one in a hundred individuals, be they godless or religious, collectivist or free market capitalist, ever stops to think about the obvious contradictions they demonstrate every day in their assumptions, beliefs, actions, and statements.
