More "Birther" Insanity

It is frightening how deranged and easily lead the so-called "birthers" are in their obsession that Barack Obama is not really a natural born citizen of the USA. I'd really like to know what kind of Kool-Aid they are drinking because it obviously impairs rational thought. The image below is a full page ad that these loons placed in the Washington Times - not exactly a reliable source in and of itself.

Obama's Lack of Constitutional Eligibility-The 3 Enablers-20091130 Issue Wash Times Natl Wkly-pg 9

Think Progress has the following commentary:
The hardly intelligible ad copy claims that under a 60-year-old British law, President Obama is a citizen of Britain and “is currently also a British protected person and/or a British citizen to this day.” The Center for American Progress’ Ian Millhiser points out that if this rule were actually applied to the presidency, every foreign nation would have the power to remove the President of the United States simply by granting the president citizenship.
The website promoted by the ad is run by Charles F. Kerchner, Jr., a plaintiff in a birther lawsuit filed against President Obama in New Jersey.

If Obama is indeed a non US Citizen, Clinton would have uncovered it during the 2008 Presidential Primaries. She was going full force and would have pulled the rug from underneath Obama IF there was any truth to that conspiracy.
