"Still, my goal is to set a standard," Grinols explained. "If I demand to see the birth certificates as credentials, I hope the idea will catch on and the Democratic Party presidential electors will do the same for Barack Obama and Joe Biden."

THEY HAVE DONE IT FOR OBAMA, YOU FARKING MORON!!

Two different forms, as a matter of fact. BOTH legal, and BOTH released. Welcome to September of 2012, this shiat was answered for Obama last Spring.

Jesus, why in the Hell did I give that link a click?

"If we could get Republican electors in all states - all [538] of them - to ask for Romney's birth certificate, it would have a visible, strong moral pull at least to independents who might finally see the absurdity of a presidential candidate going to court in order to resist being forced to show birth certificate credentials," he said.

What's absurd is that this never happened.

gingerjet: Actually depending on the state - the guy as an elector may not have any obligation to do anything. He could vote for Mickey Mouse.


True, but can you imagine the ass kicking that would be awaiting him when he got home?

So WND's main page shows at the top "15 years of herpa derpy derp".

My question is, what did they derp about before Obama? Until 2008 I had never heard of this site.

A desire to encounter the derp-of-the-day before your FoxNews addicted relatives post it on your facebook wall, therefore allowing you to plan your responses ahead of time?
Temporary insanity?
Head trauma induced by facedesking after reading a Townhall article?
Mary & John Lulz?
Latent non-sexual masochistic tendancies?

Stop me when I get close.


Those are all good guesses, but I think it was actually because I wanted to know more about the article beyond the headline. With the exception of the derpy quote I posted, there was NOTHING in TFA that wasn't in the headline. Damn... MY bad, I guess I'll learn from this.

LouDobbsAwaaaay: I remember soon after Obama released the long-form certificate, the right-wing couldn't get their shiat together and decide if they were going with "FAKE!!!! PIXELS!!!1!" or "why do librulz keep bringing up Obama's birth certificate?"

Here we are, all these months later, and they settled on "what birth certificate?"


Future humans are going to laugh at us.

In the 24th Century, they won't be trying to reach the Delta quadrant, they'll be arguing over whether or not the 18th Century or the 22nd Century was the Age of Enlightenment.

This guy is a troll right? Has to be.

A person who was really that stupid wouldn't actually be given any position of real authority IRL?

*faith in humanity ebbing away*

Help me out here, peoples, lie to me if ya hafta.


The guy's an elector. His only job is to vote in the electoral college for the candidate that won the popular vote in his state. It's a position that once had some significance when the constitution was first written and electors actually chose for themselves who to vote for; but nowadays not voting as ordered is actually a felony in many states.

You think it's bad he's got ads in the middle of his own columns? Try reading one of his books sometime, where he cites himself as his own source.

Given your image macro post, you seem to be implying that a presidential candidate in recent history has gone to court in order to resist being forced to show birth certificate credentials. Which candidate, and which court case?


Entirely the opposite. I'm suggesting that the people at WND are feigning ignorance.

So it's come to this, then.

The Political Climate in the United States has become such that we have to pander to a group of people who make Anti-vaccinationists, creationists, and 9/11 Truthers look sane and intelligent in comparison.

Mitt Romney's now pandering to the birthers.

Double absurd since he released his birth certificate without being ordered to by a judge.
Triple absured since he did that twice.

/Back to regular WND absurd: if he released two different birth certificates, then obviously at least one of them was fake.

Conservatives have been lying for so long at this point they've forgotten how to do anything else.
