TVNL Comment: Hmmm....
A blogger who is maintaining anonymity is claiming to have generated a Kenyan birth certificate for the president that appears similar to the one unveiled days ago by a California attorney who has shepherded several lawsuits over Barack Obama's eligibility.
The blogger wrote on fearlessblogging a list of materials used in the work, including: Fine cotton business paper: $11, Inkjet printer: $35, 1940 Royal Model KMM manual typewriter: $10, 2 Shilling coin: $1, Pilot Varsity fountain pen: $3 and then cited "Punkin' the Birthers: Priceless."
The hoaxers have claimed that this certificate provided by the Obama campaign is a fake, but have yet to produce any evidence to back that claim up. Their approach, straight out of the Napoleonic code, is to make continual accusations and demand that the accused prove their innocence. They hope that simply by repeating a claim often enough, useful idiots will come to believe it. But here in the United States, we follow the principle that the ACCUSER must prove the accused guilty, beyond a reasonable doubt. What that means is that when the Swift-Boaters accuse Barack Obama of fraud, it is they who are required to provide proof beyond a reasonable doubt. Otherwise, we as citizens are obligated to ignore such baseless accusations, and certainly refuse to forward them along to everyone in our mailing lists (as these spammed emails always insist we must do).
