October Surprise? - The Ultimate Obama Smear?

As someone who has spent the past few years being demonized by Torostar, the Canadian Peoples Agitprop Network, the National Dope Party (N.D.P.), that old Maoist Duceppe, and now George Boros, owner of the US Democratic Party, I must say I share the pain that Barack Hussein Obama is currently going through.

Today and tomorrow, reports say Barry will be off the campaign and in Hawaii, helping take care of his sick grandmother. My condolences.

However, other cynics say that he is there to tend to something more ominous, a court challenge by crusading Chicago lawyer Andy Martin that is asking for a certified vault copy of Obama's birth certificate.

In a parallel court case, in Philadelphia, the plaintiff, attorney Philip J. Berg, declares that the birth certificate put up on Obama's Fight the Smears website must now be regarded as a forgery and that, according to Obama's paternal grandfather, Obama was born in Mombasa, Kenya.

Here's an interview with Berg (you can skip the first 60 seconds):

Berg states that "he filed Requests for Admissions on September 15, 2008 with a response by way of answer or objection had to be served within thirty [30] days. No response to the Requests for Admissions was served by way of response or objection. Thus, all of the Admissions directed to Obama and the DNC are deemed “ADMITTED.” Therefore, Obama must immediately withdraw his candidacy for President.

Here's the docket. Here's a good tracking blog from a law student with pals at the courthouse.

UPDATE: The Philadelphia judge ruled Berg had no standing. He is appealing to the US Supreme Court. The Hawaii judge delayed a decision until November 7.

NEW UPDATE: Some commentators are now suggesting that if John McCain loses the election, HE has standing, and the Supreme Court will hear him right away.

Whew, what a zoo! This stuff makes the last Canadian election look like a Sunday school picnic.
