    New typography for annotating comments.

    Up until now, I have sometimes annotated comments, or redacted them using formatting like:

    From now on, I will be using the HTML <ins> tag like this:

    Paper December 13, 2013 at 11:37 pm #

    FWIW, this statement is not accurate. Most obviously, for instance, Section 1 of the 14th Amendment closes with these words: “nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.” (Emphasis mine.)

    These words of the Constitution are not written just for American citizens, but for any person.

    In case anyone wants to have a conniption fit…

    Why Obama’s Haters Are Worse Than Bush’s

    The left’s critics of the Bush presidency are no match to today’s paranoid right, as this week’s insane innuendo—from the Hawaii plane crash to The Handshake—perfectly illustrates.

    it ends with: Yes, Obama will be out of office one day—which only raises the question what they might say (that they haven’t already) about Hillary.

    “Socialist” is just one of many terms and words right-wingers like to use, in some ill-thought out attempt to dehumanize the opposition. Such words become “dirty” or “obscene” to them, like “Gay”, “Muslim”, “Liberal”, etc. I’ve yet to see one instance where someone who was called one or any combination of those things replies with “You take that back!”

    And on a completely off topic note: Sometimes I look at the original “Operation” board game, and can’t help but wonder if the coroner doing Shemp Howard’s autopsy wasn’t thinking to himself “Boy, this would make a swell game!”

    Hi Doc,

    Are you still taking suggestions for names to add to your “Birthers from A to Z” list?

    I’m a little disappointed that my personal favorite birther didn’t make the cut: Dr. Eowyn from the Fellowship of the Minds blog. Her blog seems to have a fairly large readership, and she’s a real-life, honest-to-goodness Professor Emeritus.

    Or do you only want real names? Since (AFAIK) she only ‘goes birther’ using her pseudonym, I would be violating Rule 14 of your Editorial Policy if I were to disclose that information.

    It’s regrettable that she doesn’t have a Rule 14 for her own blog.

    Dr. Conspiracy December 17, 2013 at 12:43 pm #

    I’ll add “Dr. Eowyn” as a pseudonym. It turns out that I had never mentioned Dr. Eowyn on the blog before, although I did talk about an article Eowyn authored. I updated that story, and created a tag for linking by Birthers from A to Z.

    The Bird-Boy of Birthcatraz had an interesting post at BR:

    “Ted Cruz is a scripted memeic nomenclature. So many are fooled by the *words* barfed up by Cruz and rightfully attributed to Reagan’s heart, and Cruz knows it. America is in such peril that good folks are grabbing onto any branch of hope they can.

    “These Cruz automatons are no better than the O-Holes. I seriously doubt the true conservatives here are swayed by Cruz’s Levinic situational constitutionalism.”

    Scripted memeic nomenclature? Surely he meant “memetic” but what he hell is “nomenclature” dong there? And, “Levinic situational constitutionalism”? Such a phrase-maker! But he really won me over with his imagery . . . Cruz’s barf and Reagan’s heart–now that’s parallelism a birther could sink his teeth into.

    It seems many of them prefer a white Russian over a black American any day of the week (though I must admit I’m rather fond of a White Russian or two after a stressful week myself ;)).

    Also, Putin appears to be more of a right-wing dictator (or, in the RWNJ’s eyes, Slayer of Gays and Preserver of the Holy White Race) than a textbook Red Soviet.

    I guess it won’t be long until the wingnuts openly call for Russia to bring down the US government. Some birthers would probably gladly enroll in the KGB if it helped oust the black guy.

    Birther tea party rep. refuses to stand near Obama photo, moves away U.S. flag

    Rep. Vicky Hartzler (R-MO):

    told a group of people at a town hall that she had “a lot of doubts” about Obama’s birth certificate.

    “But I don’t understand why he didn’t show that right away. I mean, if someone asked for my birth certificate, I’d get my baby book and hand it out and say ‘Here it is,’ so I don’t know,” she said.

    she had “doubts that it is really his real birth certificate, and I think a lot of Americans do, but they claim it is, so we are just going to go with that.”

    NOW she had some difficulty locating the perfect spot for a press conference following her tour of Truman Memorial Veterans Hospital on Tuesday.

    Far as I can tell, the connection in their minds works something like this. In their parallel universe, judges and congressmen all know that the birthers are right but pretend the birthers are wrong because of threats, bribes, all those black people will riot, for whatever reason Obama has some hold over everyone that nobody dares defy him. (At this point you have to not think about what House Republicans have been doing for years.) But, in this fantasy, Obama’s hold will slip as soon as anyone does. Hence the word “cracks” in the title. Once that happens, everyone will admit that the birthers were right all along, and they can go ahead and execute all the people who ever disagreed with them.

    Obama’s Half Brother, Mark Ndesandjo, Writes About Childhood Abuse In New Autobiography

    new to me:

    Like the president, Ndesandjo also has a white American mother, Ruth Ndesandjo, a Jewish woman who was Barack Obama Sr.’s third wife.

    “Barack thought I was too white and I thought he was too black,” Ndesandjo said. “He was an American searching for his African roots, I was a Kenyan, I’m an American but I was living in Kenya, searching for my white roots.”

    The 500-page book includes an appendix listing a number of alleged factual errors in Obama’s 1995 memoir, “Dreams from my Father,” such as quotes incorrectly attributed to Ndesandjo’s mother.

    “It’s a correction. A lot of the stuff that Barack wrote is wrong in that book and I can understand that because to me for him the book was a tool for fashioning an identity and he was using composites,” Ndesandjo said.

    Ndesandjo was brought up in Kenya but moved to the U.S. for college, earning a bachelor’s degree in physics at Brown University, a master’s in the same subject from Stanford University and an MBA at Emory University.

    new to birthers: Obama Sr. had earlier divorced President Obama’s mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, after Obama was born in Hawaii in 1961.

    I was going to write an article, but decided not:

    “Obama Conspiracy Theories seconds demand for autopsy report”

    Press Release;

    The Obama Conspiracy Theories blog today demanded the release of the autopsy report of Orly Taitz. The blog, known for its opposition to the so-called birther movement, urged its over 1000 readers to phone and write to the Orange County medical examiner, demanding that the autopsy of Orly Taitz (whether she agrees or not) be performed and the results released. It is a matter of vital public interest as to why she does the crazy things she does.

    Nice suggestion Doc. How often does an autopsy require the services of an anesthetist?

    On second thoughts, no anesthetist required, just sharp scalpels and ear plugs.

    Another Friday, and another “no opinion” from the Alabama Supreme Court in the McInnish case.

    I’d suggest a full lobotomy, but her head is full of spiders.

    Depends on whether your objective is to stop the shooting, or simply to demonstrate graciousness and/or moral superiority.

    Yes, that was interesting, and some interesting comments on the article as well. It think, though, that the change was more about the Civil Rights Act than anything the Republicans did.

    To me, this is the money quotation:

    As the conservative journalist Robert Novak reported after attending a meeting of the Republican National Committee in Denver during the summer of 1963: “A good many, perhaps a majority of the party’s leadership, envision substantial political gold to be mined in the racial crisis by becoming in fact, though not in name, the White Man’s Party.”

    Sebelius has 20 days to reply: “Per 5 USC 552 response is required within 20 days from the receipt of this request, failure to do so will be seen as a refusal to provide information and will entitle the petitioner to seek a redress in the US District Court.”

    Press Release: FOIA demand for explanation and records sent to Sebelius: how did Obama sign up for Obamacare with a CT Social Security number which failed E-Verify and SSNVS

    Further, Hon. Kathleen Sebelius is placed on notice that lack of action and resolution in this matter may be seen as complicity on her part in the cover up of Obama’s use of fabricated IDs and a stolen Social Security number and it might expose Ms. Sebelius to liability in both Civil and Criminal RICO causes of action.

    Respectfully,

    /s/ Dr. Orly Taitz ESQ.

    The President signed up for Obamacare (which he doesn’t need.)

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/post-politics/wp/2013/12/23/obama-signs-up-for-health-care-selects-bronze-plan-in-d-c-exchange/?

    The salient quote?

    “Like some Americans, the complicated nature of the president’s case required an in-person sign-up,” the official said. “As you’d expect, the president’s personal information is not readily available in the variety of government databases HealthCare.gov uses to verify identities.”

    But they do try. Lordy, how they try.
