Well, over at ObamaReleaseYourRecords, there is another literate Birther practicing law without a license. (Or brain.) His name is T.J. McCann III, and he has penned 11 pages of pseudo-legal quackery. An image of Page 1 is above. He would get an “A” on it in Junior High School Civics, for grammar and punctuation. His mother would brag on him and show it to all her friends. However, in Law School, he would get an “F” and a trip to the shrink’s office.
This is because McCann does not start his analysis with Wong Kim Ark, the seminal case in determining the meaning of natural born citizenship. Instead, he uses his Frequent Flier Miles to go back in time to Calvin’s Case, and then engages in some kind of fantasy/masturbatory legal analysis from that point forward. He dismisses the Wong Kim Ark decision with:
1898 U.S. vs. Wong Kim Ark, 169 U.S. 649 (1898) (same definition [as Vattel] and C.J, Fuller‟s dissent confirming Vattel‟s definition of a “natural born Citizen”);
Ooookaaay. . . Here is my critique, using one picture to save all the little consonants and vowels from having to work on Labor Day: (Don’t forget to mouse over the image below, too.)

Note 1. The Second Image: This is the famous screen actor, Daffy Duck, about whom Wiki says:
Daffy Duck is an animated cartoon character produced by Warner Bros. He has appeared in cartoon series such as Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies, where he usually has been depicted as the best friend and occasional arch-rival of Bugs Bunny. Daffy was one of the first of the new “screwball” characters that emerged in the late 1930s to replace traditional everyman characters who were more popular earlier in the decade, such as Mickey Mouse and Popeye. Daffy starred in 133 shorts in the Golden Age, making him the third-most frequent character in the Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies cartoons, behind Bugs Bunny’s 166 appearances and Porky Pig’s 159 appearances.
Daffy first appeared on April 17, 1937, in Porky’s Duck Hunt, directed by Tex Avery and animated by Bob Clampett. The cartoon is a standard hunter/prey pairing for which Leon Schlesinger’s studio was famous, but Daffy (barely more than an unnamed bit player in this short) was something new to moviegoers: an assertive, completely unrestrained, combative protagonist. Clampett later recalled:
“At that time, audiences weren’t accustomed to seeing a cartoon character do these things. And so, when it hit the theaters it was an explosion. People would leave the theaters talking about this daffy duck.”
Virtually every Warner Bros. cartoon director put his own spin on the Daffy Duck character – he may be a lunatic vigilante in one short but a greedy gloryhound in another. Bob Clampett and Chuck Jones both made extensive use of these two very different versions of the character.
