In a move intended to burnish a well-earned reputation for persistence, conservative Republicans across the land today signaled an end to their fruitless questioning of Obama's birthplace; switching instead to the far more interesting question of his conception place.
Expecting this new and incisive discussion to enhance Republican's grip on the coveted Crazy of the Month award, talk radio has discovered that the founding fathers neglected their duty by failing to foresee that only embryos conceived within the original thirteen colonies could rightly claim the purity necessary to aspire, as adults, to the highest office in the land.
To honor our highest national office, all presidents not born in one of the original colonies and those with dubious claims for American conception will be immediately disinterred and impeached. In the case of living presidents, their claims will be examined and impeachment will progress without a formal disinterrment. Republican study groups are currently seeking ways to obtain stimulus monies for this effort.
Spokesman for the group RRWRC (Right Wing Republican Crazies)comment that this purifying movement will serve to uphold our traditions and keep Congress way too busy to get anything at all done, thus providing bountiful ammunition for the next election, when the record of the Democratic presidency and congress can be assailed as do-nothing.
