I don’t know about you, but for me it’s the thrill of the chase, finding that one bit of evidence, that one obscure federal court case mentioning “natural born citizen”, trying to remotely psychoanalyze Orly or Phil.
President Obama has a real job running the Executive Branch of government. That’s serious. He has a lawyer or few and they get paid to answer these pesky lawsuits when they pop up. Those are all professionals.
Orly, Leo, Mario and Phil are professionals in a sense. They have law degrees, and maybe a subscription to Westlaw. But most of the evidence they use comes from the Internet — the anti-Obama lawyers are playing by the same rules and using the same tools as us bloggers. And that’s the challenge. We Obot bloggers can go toe to toe with the professional nObama lawyers and that’s cool stuff (and frankly we Obot bloggers are on a better legal footing). Do you think Obama could give us a slice of the $2.1 million in legal. Could I get pro hac vice in Texas, you think?
Given that there is not a snowballs chance in hell of anything bad happening on the presidential eligibility front, we can ply our hobby and enjoy the game. It’s an intellectually stimulating activity and intensely educational. Who else can you meet at a party (except maybe an immigration lawyer) and strike up a conversation about Schneider v. Rusk?
So let’s get on with business: finding that one bit of evidence, that one obscure federal court case mentioning “natural born citizen”, and trying to remotely psychoanalyze Orly and Phil.
