Satire By John Lillpop
What if Barack Obama is declared a non-citizen and ineligible to serve as U.S. President?
That is most improbable, right? Perhaps, but not impossible.
In fact, a challenge to Obama's citizenship is scheduled to be the subject of a "conference" at the U.S. Supreme Court on December 5, 2008. A conference is a meeting of the Supreme Court Justices where cases are reviewed and the court decides which ones to accept for formal review. *
The formal election of Barack Obama by the Electoral College is scheduled for December 15, just ten days following the Supreme Court conference.
What if the U.S. Supreme Court accepts the case of Leo C. Donofrio against Nina Wells,the secretary of state in New Jersey, and rules that Barack Obama is not a natural-born citizen as he must be according to the U.S. Constitution in order to qualify for the presidency?
Would electors at the meeting of the Electoral College simply ignore Barack Obama and choose a president and vice president from among Joe Biden, John McCain, and Sarah Palin on December 15?
A majority of 270 votes would be required for each position.
In the interest of constitutional continuity, perhaps President Bush and Dick Cheney would agree to step aside early to allow Speaker Nancy Pelosi to take over the Oval Office.
Senator Robert Byrd would, by law, become Vice President, until the swearing in of the 111th Congress, when the 90-year old Byrd would yield to youth in the person of Senator Inouye, the 84 year old from Hawaii.
A most delicious irony would occur if the electors installed Governor Palin as President and Joe Biden as her VP, leaving John McCain out in the cold where he belongs!
A Palin administration so conceived would cause moon bats at Daily Kos and elsewhere to go ballistic, providing laughs and hilarity for months, if not years.
Palin-Biden? Has a nice ring to it,right?
The liberals will have hissy fits!
“Let her and her kids stay a couple of days!”
And let them remove all the ‘O’s from the keyboards.
and the O rings from the bathroom fixtures!
Astounding. The satirists know about the questions concerning Obama’s natural born status, and are making hay of it, but the “mainstream” media still doesn’t know a thing about it!

Np speakers here. :(

From where? All I saw was the flash-player.
Was that the Kenyan ambassador or an impersonator? Who knows if this audio sound byte was planted by Kos?
LOL that particular shot of her wink isn’t flattering. It looks like a stroke oncoming.
Just to be clear, that is NOT a diss on Palin. Phew sometimes the FR Palinites are more cult-like than Obamamamas. EVERY comment re: Palin must be qualified and defanged.
I don’t think Reid would be VP.
It was just copy and paste from the source, it took me a while to figure how to left-align her picture. May be neo-con's not cult-likes.

And she needs to replace that bowling alley in the WH basement with a shooting range.
50 rounds each morning. Should set her up to have great days in the office.
