I’m not ready to say “yes” to that question, but one journalist, Jay Bookman of the Atlanta Journal Constitution gives reason to think perhaps he did. In an article titled, “Some cold water on over-heated birther mania,” Bookman wrote:
Until I sat in that courtroom yesterday, I wasn’t sure why the Obama legal team had chosen not to appear. But in hindsight, they were right. Showing up to refute the nonsense presented would have given the birther arguments a dignity they do not deserve. You cannot refute air and sheer fantasy. How many times can an opposing lawyer say, in so many words, “Your honor, this is just really and truly stupid”?
Rather than blaming the judge or Secretary Kemp for yesterday’s circus, Bookman puts the blame on the “foolish conspiracy mongers, ” and concludes that Obama will unquestionably be on the November ballot in Georgia.
