The Torch* is Passed

*Lighting the way, or starting a conflagration? 

"Driver, take me back to the Upper East Side now !"

God continues to plague Southerners with tornadoes because He is amused by ABC News' Diane Sawyer's pathetically theatrical attempts at empathy. 

"I've got the evidence !"

Orly Taitz, the California dentist / lawyer / real estate agent who has led efforts to question President Barack Obama’s birth place, has moved on to a new conspiracy now that the White House has released his long-form birth certificate.

In an interview with Washington Wire, she now says that Mr. Obama once used a Social Security number that was not assigned to him. Oh also, she claims he graduated from Columbia University in nine months, not two years, as he claims.

Ms. Taitz appears to underscore his contention. To her, the release of the document only brought up a rash of new questions. Why, she asked, is the race of the president’s father, Barack Hussein Obama, identified as “African”?

Why did Mr. Obama claim in 1968 to be 44 in. tall when is clearly about 6 ft. tall?

Mr. Obama has said that he is a 'Spring' when his coloring clearly makes him a 'Fall'.

Why does is the address of the mother 6085 Kalanianaole Highway in Honolulu, not the address of the young parents but the address of Mr. Obama’s grandparents?

Once while lost driving through Washington D.C., Mr. Obama made 31 left turns and only 5 right turns. Coincidence?

Mr. Obama is left-handed: a curious "statistical" anomaly or a sinister plot ?

Just where was Mr. Obama on June 14, 1992 between the hours of 4:00 and 5:45 PM?

Why would a loyal American have a dog from Portugal?

Mr. Obama once paid for an ice cream cone with a $2 bill.

Fire Marshals in Six States Breath Sigh of Relief

Barbour Will Not Run
"I will not be a candidate for president next year. This has been a difficult, personal decision, and I am very grateful to my family for their total support of my going forward, had that been what I decided....
..."A candidate for president today is embracing a ten-year commitment to an all-consuming effort, to the virtual exclusion of all else. His (or her) supporters expect and deserve no less than absolute fire in the belly from their candidate. I cannot offer that with certainty, and total certainty is required."
"We gotsta keep fire where it belongs."
