Barack Obama is a source of ultimate frustration for Republicans. They don’t have anything on him, so they have to make up things. At least Bill Clinton had the courtesy to get a BJ, so they could overreact as though he lied us into a war or something. But Obama has a clean slate. So they call him a Communist, a Socialist, a Nazi, a traitor, and most of all, a Kenyan. On that subject, here’s some good news.
Orly Taitz, the California dentist and attorney who has gained notoriety for her relentless efforts to prove that President Obama is inelegible for office, suffered another blow last week when an Orange County judge rejected her attempt to retrieve Obama’s college records.
As first reported by the school’s student paper, the Occidental Weekly, Taitz had filed a legal motion to compel Occidental College to release transcripts and other records from when Obama was an undergraduate there in the late ’70s and early ’80s, alleging that Obama was not born in the United States and is currently using a fake social security number. The private college’s counsel, Carl Botterud, pointing to privacy concerns, deemed Taitz’s case "frivolous" and "without merit." The self-proclaimed "queen of the birthers" then argued that the matter of Obama’s alleged foreign birth was important enough to overrule privacy laws…
…Orange County Superior Court Judge Charles Margines rejected Taitz’ argument, citing procedural errors and questioning the quality of her evidence….
“You should know that evidence is not stuff printed from the Internet,” Margines told Taitz, according to the Occidental Weekly.
Margines also ordered Taitz to pay the college $4,000 to cover the resources spent defending itself…

That defeat may well be the last straw needed to end Orly’s Birther rampage, but she still has career opportunities left. She can go to work for Rupert and become one of the most credible goose-steppers on Faux Noise. Or she could teabag a fellow Republican in a safely gerrymandered district in 2014, get elected, and take on Michele Bachman for the title Batshit Queen of the House.
