The Birthers and the Magna Carta

Alex Koppelman rolls up his sleeves and looks into the newest frontier for the Obama birth certificate conspiracy theorists — a “citizen grand jury” that takes its authority from the Magna Carta to indict the president.

Carl Swensson and his group are claiming the right to the same method of redress granted to those 13th century barons. The rules for the “common law grand jury” laid out by Thornton include this, from his section on enforcement of the grand jury’s actions: “The grand jury may distrain and oppress the government in every way in their power, namely, by taking the homes, lands, possessions, and any way else they can until amends shall have been made according to the sole judgment of the grand jury.”

Is it a threat of violence or a hint that Swensson et al don’t know how to read?

I see less entertaining, but more mainstream, Birther developments happening at RedState.com. Warner Todd Huston, a high-profile conservative blogger there and at the American Civil Liberties Union, promotes a trailer for an Obama conspiracy film.

I am not personally convinced the birth certificate is an issue, but I have to say, I have no leg to stand on but my “feeling” that it isn’t relevant because we’ve not seen actual birth certificate to butress my “feeling.” So, what do I tell people that insist this is an important issue?

Huston might want to ask Ben Ginsberg — the lawyer trying to sue former Sen. Norm Coleman back into the U.S. Senate — who is also a blogger at RedState.com.
