    Just to make sure everything's clear, the SC didn't so much "order" that she pay this fine as it did decline to hear her appeal from the trial judge's order assigning her the fine.
    Dammit, I'm slow today.

    Ok. Thanks for clarifying. I was just wondering if there was a legal reason (and now I know there is).

    On a serious note. Birthers are the biggest dumbasses ever.

    That is all.

    Well surely the pundits who helped instigate this stupidity will pitch in to help her pay the fine, right?

    In other news, Orly Taitz has sued the Supreme Court. According to the lawsuit, Justice Roberts, Justice Alito, and Justice Scalia have not provided her with long forms of their birth certificates, leading her to charge that they do not meet qualifications to be on the Supreme Court. One is suspected of being Obama's Kenyan stepbrother, another is suspected of being in the Mafia in Palermo, Sicily, and the third is not even a human, but a partridge, who spends all day sitting in pear trees, pondering the great legal questions of the day.
