I Would Laugh if It Weren't So Sad

Four super-genius Republicans in the Tennessee legislature, hell-bent on making our state look even stupider than it is, have joined in a lawsuit put forth by a Russian immigrant, demanding that President Barack Obama show his birth certificate and prove that he is a United States citizen.

Never mind that he already did that.  But even if he hadn't, and even if he was born in Kenya, he's still a natural-born U.S. Citizen under the law.  It's also a problematic move on their parts, because without any evidence to support their claims as plaintiffs, our legislature's best and brightest aren't going to get real far.  So glad we have smart men like these, with such a deep understanding of legal procedures, involved in the creation of laws in this state.
