The Supreme Court has turned down an emergency appeal from a New Jersey man who says President-elect Barack Obama is ineligible to be president because he was a British subject at birth.

It's a very odd story, altogether, that desperate attempt to find Barack Obama ineligible on the basis of citizenship. I've tried to follow the arguments, but they tend to shift the way arguments usually do when only the goal is fixed and everything else varies to reach that goal.

There are people who focus on stuff like that and it's a good thing to be reminded of it. If you don't read right-wing blogs, that is.
