SCOTUS Rejects Birther Suit

The Supreme Court has rejected the Obama birth certificate lawsuit headed by crackpot teabagger Alan Keyes.
Without comment, the high court on Monday refused to hear an appeal from Alan Keyes, Wiley Drake and Markham Robinson. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled the challengers did not have legal standing to file the lawsuit. The U.S. Constitution says only "a natural born citizen" may serve as president. The challengers allege that Obama, whose father was Kenyan, was born in that African country, rather than in Hawaii. They claim his Hawaii birth certificate is a forgery. Hawaii officials have repeatedly verified Obama's citizenship.
Wing Nut Daily commenters are furious!
