Kenya hear the conspiracy theories tonight? The Supreme Court doesn't, and won't in the future either.
The high court on Monday refused to hear an appeal from the American Independent Party questioning President Obama's American citizenship and eligibility to be commander in chief. The Associated Press explains that the ruling came without comment and reaffirmed a previous decision by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that found the challengers did not have the necessary legal standing to file the lawsuit in the first place.
The appeal was filed by Alan Keyes and Wiley Drake, who ran against Obama in 2008 on the AIP ticket, and Markham Robinson, the party's chairman. The trio claims that Obama, whose father was Kenyan, was born in an African country despite the fact that Hawaii officials, among others, have verified his citizenship. Over and over and over again.
