Keyes appeal thrown out

Alan Keyes

The Supreme Court of California voted 6-0 Wednesday (Feb. 2, 2011) not to review the Appeals Court decision of Alan Keys’ case against Barack Obama, according to the Metropolitan News-Enterprise. Keyes v Bowen had been previously rejected by the California Third District Court of Appeals last October.

Keyes had sued California Secretary of State Bowen because she did not “verify” the qualifications of Barack Obama to be on the ballot. The California courts had previously said that presidential qualifications are the province of Congress.

The Appeals Court said:

“[T]he presidential nominating process is not subject to each of the 50 states’ election officials independently deciding whether a presidential nominee is qualified, as this could lead to chaotic results. Were the courts of 50 states at liberty to issue injunctions restricting certification of duly-elected presidential electors, the result could be conflicting rulings and delayed transition of power in derogation of statutory and constitutional deadlines.”

    Because as we all know, Christ was a big supporter of Shock n’ Awe.

    What was it? 27% voted for this carpetbagging buffoon in Illinois? That speaks volume.

    And because Christ would probably not pass the right-wing’s strong anti-immigration bias, so he would never become a naturalized citizen and it logically follows he couldn’t vote for anyone.

    Besides, wouldn’t Christ voting for *any* politician be akin to the Pope voting for “Best Adult Movie”?

    Cracked magazine had my favorite line about Keyes, that he would endorse a schizophrenic walrus if the walrus was pro-life.

    And then there’s the problem with Christ being non-violent pacifist. I doubt that would go over well with the modern conservative movement, seeing as how most of them stop reading the Constitution after the Second Amendment.

    Jesus of Nazereth would not have been a “natural born citizen” due to immaculate conception. Therefore no U.S. voting rights for a Palestinian citizen of the Roman Empire.

    The only thing left now is for the birthers to “prove” that all of the justices who sit on Supreme Court of California were paid off with ACORN money.

    It’s a good thing that I never plan to run for President. The birthers would point to the fact that I was born by Caesarian section.

    Would all the walrus’ personalities have to be pro-life or just one?
