At number 1o on my list of The Top Ten Obama Conspiracy Theories to be Revealed in 2009 was this prescient item:
Hawaii is not a state!
It tuned out that only a few days would elapse before emailed me a link to just such a theory.
Now, our dipsy dentist Orly Taitz, DDS, Esq. jumps off the wagon too:
KAILUA, HAWAII (The Borowitz Report) – Leaders of the so-called Birther movement followed President Obama on his Hawaiian vacation today to demand that Hawaii prove it is actually a U.S. state.
Mr. Obama’s claim to American citizenship has rested on his birthplace being Hawaii, but the Birthers argued today that Hawaii’s claim to being part of America is far from a foregone conclusion.
Speaking to reporters in Kailua, Birther leader Orly Taitz said that Hawaii cannot be considered part of the United States “unless it can produce an authentic statehood certificate.”
Ms. Taitz said that she did a thorough title search on the islands and has concluded that rather than being a U.S. state, “the islands of Hawaii appear to be colonies of Kenya.”
“That means that everyone born in Hawaii is legally not an American but a Kenyan,” she said, “which I find ironic.”
Wait a minute. Is somebody pulling my leg?
