As noted at, the election of Obama can actually become a good thing, if the Republicans respond accordingly. Jeff Schrieber wrote that Harry Truman brought us Dwight Eisenhower and Jimmy Carter brought us Ronald Reagan.

      The challenges to Barack Obama’s eligibility did not end last night when he was elected President. Supreme Court Justice Souter did not issue an injunction to stop the election as Philip Berg had requested in his filing of Berg v. Obama, which was probably not expected to happen. However, at the same time, the request for a writ of certiorari was not denied or dismissed. In fact, the Obama team has until December 1, 2008 to respond to Mr. Berg’s motion, at which time Mr. Berg will have the opportunity to respond.

     All of this would seem to be a nuisance to the man who was just elected to be President of the United States, and as a nuisance, it could easily be put to rest…. unless there is actually something at issue within the typewritten document housed at the Hawaii Bureau of Vital Statistics. I still lay odds on Canada!

      This is the announcement from Philip Berg’s website and the Supreme Court docket:

Justice Souter’s Clerk has informed Mr. Berg that Mr. Berg’s application for an injunction to stay the November 4th election has been denied. (The U. S. Supreme Court Docket is below.)

The defendants are required to respond to the Writ of Certiorari by December first, after which Mr. Berg will have an opportunity to respond.
