Federal Judge Boots Case Of Birther G.I.

Major Stefan Cook, the Army reservist who refused to deploy to Iraq because he claimed Obama was not his legitimate commander-in-chief, got his head handed to him in court. Via World Net Daily:
An American soldier questioning the eligibility of President Barack Obama to hold office has had his latest legal challenge dismissed "as frivolous and wholly without merit." The Aug. 6 ruling by U.S. District Judge Richard A. Lazzara came less than two hours after motions were filed by Maj. Stefan Cook, a member of the U.S. Army Reserve who is seeking a firm determination whether the commander in chief of the Armed Forces is a "natural born citizen," a constitutional requirement for those holding the presidency. "There was no reasoning, no nothing," said Maj. Cook, who noted previous legal decisions in his case included three or four pages of legal explanations. "It's ridiculous. They're not even saying why it's frivolous and without merit. You can say that to anything with no justification or reason. That's crap. So much for jurisprudence in this country."
Cook was terminated from the Army for refusing to deploy and says he remains unemployed with no job prospects. Cue the sad trombone.
