It was a good day for Justice in Vermont!
— H. Brooke Paige
H. Brooke Paige tried to impress the Vermont Supreme Court yesterday with a thick pile of books1 that he at one point attempted to approach and hand to them, violating their personal judicial space, and according to the Burlington Free Press, raising some alarm.
Paige wanted to make it clear to the justices that he was not one of those crazy birthers, saying:
Don’t pay any attention to them. The birther argument is just a sheer flight of fancy.2
Paige is one of those crazy Vattelians. Like other cranks, Paige focuses just on what supports his theories, interpreting the evidence as if the theory were fact, and excluding everything against it, and so cannot objectively evaluate evidence. The judges were more interested in the law. Reportedly birther attorney Mario Apuzzo, who has argued classic birther conspiracy theories on behalf of Charles Kerchner, helped Paige with his arguments.
