Obama's Birth Certificate and Supposed Kenyan Citizenship

The right-wingers on talk radio are still spreading the outright and blatant lies that Barack Obama's birth certificate can't be located and there's no "proof" that he's a US citizen by birth, and that he's secretly a Kenyan citizen.

Yes, you read right, I said "outright and blatant lies".

Click this link to read Barack Obama's birth certificate.

He was born on 4 August 1961 in Honolulu, Hawaii. As Bruce Springsteen sang, "Born in the U.S.A.".

As for his alleged Kenyan citizenship, did some research and found out that Barack Jr's Kenyan citizenship through his father was valid only until his 21st birthday. Since he didn't swear an oath or alliegiance to Kenya or renounce his USA citizenship, his status of dual citzienship expired on his 21st birthday.

Barack Obama Jr. is, and remains, a native-born citizen of the United States of America.

So there.

I know, he's a comedian...

...but Jon Stewart is my man! Only he can show the dirty side of "moralists" and (at least for now) get away with it. Sort of the sly humor that royal court jesters had to have in Medieval Europe when tweaking the nose of His Majesty. Case in point, here's his take on the "Sarah Palin Gender Card" issue (from 3 September 2008):

And this is his take on the Fox "News" Network's reports on alleged voter fraud and trying to link it to the Obama campaign (from 9 October 2008):

If only the "real" news reporters could deliver the truth this well...
