Yet more evidence that birtherism rots your brain

Apparently, according to this cretin, the 9-year-old Barack Obama was an expert in Indonesian constitutional law.

Once again, birthers are proving to all and sundry that it’s not about the Constitution, it’s not about the law, it’s about trying to take down a democratically-elected President that they don’t like.

Whatever their reasons may be, they want to usurp the Presidency and subvert the democratic process because they dislike the man holding the office, and this just proves once more that there is no level to which they will not sink, no straw which they will not grab, no lie which they will not tell, if they think that there is the slightest possibility of hurting Obama politically.

Yet more evidence that birtherism rots your brain

Posted by That Other Mike on 10/10/2011

This time, it’s unlicensed “pastoral therapist” and crazypants blogger, Sam Sewell, who seems to think that this gives any law enforcement officer in the US the right to take a peek at Obama’s birth certificate. Yes, kids, you guessed it – it’s yet another “Any day now, this’ll be the thing that sinks the USURPERTRON!” moment (Usurpertron pictured at right, only $14.99 in all good local stores!).

Does the law say what Sam thinks? Sadly, no. The legislation refers to Haw. Rev. Stat. § 710-1000(13), which reads

(13) “Law enforcement officer” means any public servant, whether employed by the State or subdivisions thereof or by the United States, vested by law with a duty to maintain public order or, to make arrests for offenses or to enforce the criminal laws, whether that duty extends to all offenses or is limited to a specific class of offenses;

meaning Hawaiian or Federal law enforcement. Oops, Sam. You kind of made a booboo there.

Your second mistake, Mr Bond, was not actually reading beyond the part which tickled your fantasy; namely, that the PDF you linked to is not the law at present, so your whole post, while stupid, is also moot.
