Update: The Supreme Court has refused to hear the challenge:
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. The court did not comment on its order Monday rejecting the call by Leo Donofrio of East Brunswick, N.J., to intervene in the presidential election.

They're pretty easy to spot. They still spew the same pre-election vitriol without any letup whatsoever. Now that Americans have spoken and chosen the black guy with the Muslim-sounding middle name the racists are pinning their hopes on a U.S. Supreme Court challenge that questions whether Barack Obama is a natural-born citizen.
Their case has been thoroughly debunked so I won't bother rehashing it here. and I'm glad it's made it all the way to the Supreme Court. A decision rejecting their claim will provide closure for a few, and perhaps the rest of these Americans will someday eventually accept the choice made by their fellow countrymen and women, and get behind the President-elect and help rebuild this nation... but I doubt it.
Racism lives in the heart, right next to hatred. And the hating racists, whose spittle-filled rants grace the comment threads of this blog from time to time, are not going to stop when the Supreme Court rejects their claim.
Their hatred for black Americans isn't quenched by the rule of law. Their inner-drummer beats on, and they will just pick up new pitchforks to shake at the White House for the next four years. There is no escaping that Barack Obama is black, and the racists cannot escape their hatred for black people. The rest of us will be forced to witness the dance their hatred creates for many, many years.
Not all who oppose Obama are racist, I didn't say that. But the racists who are still unwilling to accept the choice of the majority of Americans, and unwilling to get behind the country and help lift this nation up, are woven into the fabric of this country to the extent that they will carry their hatred to the highest court in the land seeking relief.
It's their America too, and they have the right to use our courts to exercise their hatred, but they won't win -- this country and our laws are stronger than their hatred. And that's the America the rest of us still fight for, and cherish
