Don't Hate the Player...

As Election Day is a mere five days away there seems to be some pretty ridiculous attempts at derailing Barack Obama's bid for the White House. Of the more idiotic schemes comes from Philadelphia where a federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit challenging Obama's qualifications for to be president. No, it's not one of the McCain/Palin camp's beating the dead horse of Obama's inexperience. Hell, if experience is a qualification no one would be eligible except the one guy who's had the office for the last eight years. Nobody wants that, do they? I don't think so.

The newest challenge to the possibility of an Obama/Biden White House was reported in the Washington Post on Sunday October 26, 2008. It seems that lawyer Philip J. Berg's lawsuit alleging that Obama is ineligible for the leader of the free world because he is not a citizen of the US. Berg asserts that Barack Obama is either a citizen of his father's native Kenya or became a citizen of Indonesia after having moved there as a child even though his mother is an American and he was born in Hawaii. Luckily, US District Judge R. Barclay Surrick rejected Berg's suit ruling that he lacked the standing to bring the case.
