Uh... Then Hawaii Wasn't A State In 1961! ***Updated***

The other day I linked to Red State's commenters' theories about why Obama is really going to Hawaii. Sure he claims he's visiting his ailing grandmother. They were all entertaining and if the McCain campaign picks any one of them up, I bet he winds up sounding even more stable and presidential. 


But the best one I have heard, parroted by a bellicose caller to the Stephanie Miller show this morning, is the one advanced by Michael Savage: Obama is visiting the 50th state to doctor his "birth certificate. It's been one of the talking points that Obama isn't even an American Citizen! They question the authenticity of  the document. Some would say that this is beating a dead horse. But if you're surrounded by dead horses, what else you gonna beat?

So I'll let far-left in-the-tank loonies FactCheck.org address the phoniness charges. My question to Michael Savage, though, is this: if you're having documents altered, isn't is maybe a little more clandestine to have someone other than the Biggest Celebrity In The World doing the actual work? Maybe send a minor celebrity, like Colin Powell or Scott McClellan. Maybe call one of members of the secret cabal of non-white people and have them do it. Hawaii's crawlin' with 'em! 

***Update*** H/T to WAMK - a suit challenging the Obama's citizenship has been dismissed. "U.S. District Judge R. Barclay Surrick on Friday night rejected the suit by attorney Philip J. Berg, who alleged that Obama was not a U.S. citizen and therefore ineligible for the presidency. Berg claimed that Obama is either a citizen of his father's native Kenya or became a citizen of Indonesia after he moved there as a boy." Blow off your Grandma Hussein! You don't need her to cover your illegal activities!
