The activist judiciary once again thumbs its nose at the grand conservative movement:
The order and memorandum came down at approximately 6:15 p.m. on Friday. Philip Berg’s lawsuit challenging Illinois Sen. Barack Obama’s constitutional eligibility to serve as president of the United States had been dismissed by the Hon. R. Barclay Surrick on grounds that the Philadelphia attorney and former Deputy Attorney General for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania lacked standing.
Surrick, it seemed, was not satisfied with the nature of evidence provided by Berg to support his allegations.
Drats! Foiled again! What ever will Andy McCarthy write about now? Oh, nevermind:
I just caught up with an interview by one of my favorite guys, Hugh Hewitt, of another of my favorite guys, Stanley Kurtz. (It’s on Hugh’s Townhall blog, which always has plenty of required reading.)
Stanley, of course, has done singularly vital investigative work on Obama’s background — you should check out his NRO archive, here, as well as important articles he’s recently written in the New York Post and the Wall Street Journal (see. e.g., here, here and here). But Hugh’s interview is a real primer for those who haven’t delved into it much. It also spotlights an important point that has largely been missed. That is, while there has been focus on the Obama/Ayers tie and the Obama/Khalidi tie, no real attention has been paid to the Ayers/Khalidi tie — which is very strong and tightens the circle significantly.
I swear they work in shifts over at the NRO. Today it seems that McCarthy, Kurtz, and Steyn are on call to provide the stoopid. At any rate, when this fails to bring down Obama, McCarthy can always pin his hopes on the Obama mistress story being peddled by Uncle Dimbo and company at BlackFive, who are doing their own citizen journalism. Now they have a super secret source that confirms privately there was an affair between Obama and a former staffer (and they name her, gleefully, the poor woman), but no one will go public with it.
My guess on their source? Larry Johnson.
If the conservative movement was a horse, we would be well beyond shooting it, and have decided to move on to grenades and claymore mines.
