Well, this ended about like everybody expected. Dr. Orly Taitz tries to shoehorn in on the Kansas Objections Board hearing and it goes nowhere. Here is a brief excerpt from a source I found at the Fogbow:
TOPEKA – The State Objections Board brought the issue of President Barack Obama’s eligibility to be on Kansas ballots to a swift end Monday morning.
After accepting several records related to Obama’s birth in Hawaii, Mark Dugan, Lt. Gov. Jeff Colyer’s chief of staff, moved to overrule the objection and close the board’s meeting.
The board’s unanimous vote brings an end to an objection raised by Manhattan resident Joe Montgomery, who said Obama shouldn’t be on Kansas ballots and isn’t qualified to be president because his parents were not both born in the United States.
But the board’s move got tripped up momentarily when Orly Taitz, a Californian who is a leader in the so-called birther movement, pressed the board to take more time to review the documents, suggesting forgery on behalf of Obama.
Secretary of State Kris Kobach deflected her complaints, saying the board has no jurisdiction to deal with the issue at this point. Kobach said the time to file objections has passed.
“At this point, we are without jurisdiction,” he said.
Apparently there were some arguments and heated exchanges. There is more at the link. Notwithstanding any genuine respect for the law, the Republican Establishment does not wish to look crazy by cozying up to the Birthers. The three member panel consisting of the Kansas Attorney General, Secretary of State, and Lt. Governor, all Republicans who have to run for office, told Orly Taitz that she had missed the three day deadline for filing an objection to the nomination of Obama and that was simply that.
I am sure Taitz will find the men to be traitors and complicit in all sorts of crimes. She will add them to her latest lawsuit. Who cudda knowed??? Who cudda seen this coming??? EVERYBODY! For what it is worth, I wrote the bulk of this Internet Article about 4:25 AM CDT, nearly 6 hours before the hearing.
Now we can sit back and wait for all the Birther Blogs to write their obligatory “It was the cowardly,corrupt politicians!” blather. Kerchner will place another ad in the Washington Times. ORYR will do a story about the Kansas loss which will include the ad that Kerchner put in the Washington Times. Birthers will pen indignant Open Letters to whoever, and the Birther Blogs will do stories on them. Orly Taitz will fly back to California, and pound out some more semi-coherent blogs about it. There will be chest-thumping and wailing and gnashing of teeth.
In other words, just another day in Birther World.
