A couple items of interest in the mail this evening:
The first concerns a non-event from Hawaii. The Post and Email presented a petition to the Hawaii Attorney General, asking for Obama’s birth certificate and the documents relating to the preparation of Dr. Fukino’s statement that Obama was born in Hawaii.
The AG says the he doesn’t keep birth certificates; that’s the Department of Health’s job, and that he doesn’t have any documents relating to Dr. Fukino’s preparation of her statement. (I suppose if Dr. Fukino did consult with the AG, it was over the phone.)
Somehow the nObamas thing this means something, but I don’t see it.
The other item is a death threat, which appeared on Orly’s Facebook fan page, according to the Crazy Internet People blog. The argument there was that if Obama is not really president, then threatening him really isn’t a crime. I don’t know if threatening the president (or vice-president) on a blog is a crime or not. Mailing one is most definitely a crime. But hypothetically say someone commits a crime against President Obama and is prosecuted; could that person raise the defense that Obama isn’t really president? It certainly sidesteps the issue of standing.
By the way, Phil Berg is publicizing his Obamacare/Obama March on Washington for May 29, 2010. Here’s the flyer.
