And the Winner is:
The first Obama Conspiracy Theories Batshirt Award goes to TerriK of the MissTickly blog for her article [link doesn’t work, see update at end of article] suggesting that Barack Obama was the child of incest or that anyone should take seriously:
“Tourists at the beach would sometimes assume Obama was Hawaiian, and his grandfather “would come up beside them and whisper, with appropriate reverence, that I was the great-grandson of King Kamehameha,” Obama recalled.”
Then, MissTICKLY may have found evidence tending to indicate that (please take a deep breath) Barack Obama is the son of cousins, Stanley Ann Dunham and Frank Marshall Davis –” and Hawaiian royalty –” perhaps heir to the Hawaiian throne. If true, this would imply criminal fraud by Obama.
I don’t know where she got the idea that Stanley Ann Dunham and Frank Marshall Davis were cousins (at least no closer than Barack Obama and Dick Cheney), but she must think that all people of color look alike from her photo collection of Barack Obama and Hawaiian royalty.
And so now I am opening nominations for the next Batshirt award. Please comment following on the craziest Batshirt birther antics for next week’s award.
Update! Since this award was announced, the web page that earned the award for MissTickly has been deleted from her web site. Not to worry. I kept a copy.
