The chair of the House Republican Caucus in the world’s stupidest imaginable governing body — the Tennessee state legislature — is this guy named Glen Casada. Even though “Casada” lacks the proper vowel-to-consonant ratio required to be a “Real American,” this guy, along with some other Knox County legislators, will be listed in a new lawsuit challenging Barack Obama’s citizenship in the United States, which he runs. Have we written about this yet? Who knows anymore.

Two Knox County legislators have joined House Republican Caucus Chairman Glen Casada in signing up as supporters of a lawsuit trying to force President Barack Obama to turn over a copy of his birth certificate.


“I want to end the controversy,” [Rep. Stacey] Campfield said. “Obama claims he wants to be a very open person, and this is the perfect way to show that – by turning over the birth certificate to get over all the questions and concerns.”

They better think about the implications that this will have, when it works. Joe Biden will become president — and he’s a Mexican.

    What qualifications does one need to be a member of the Tennessee House Republican Caucus? The ability to fall off a log and then claim it’s the fault of the log because real American logs don’t spin when a fat man stands on them?

  • CrunchyKnee

    I think that the real controversy should be that Two Knox county legislators have joined House Republican Caucus Chairman Glen Casada in SIGNING up as supporters of a lawsuit. Everyone knows that Tennessee republicans cannot read or write, let alone sign something.

    “WE are not running for Prsident. THAT’S THE LAW, to SHOW DOCUMENTED proof of a birth certificate. I don’t care if he’s rep or dem, just prove you are LEGAL and then move on. If he’s of muslim descent, then he’s gone. But Hawaii has sealed his birth certificate and it will be tied up for YEARS before it comes out what he is.”


    “There is one group that may know with certainty the facts of O’s birth, and what paper and other evidence is or is not available.

    That’s the Mossad. It’s in their interest to know these kinds of things.

    If they have the ability (real or manufactured) to surreptitiously release convincing info that O is Kenyan-born, then that anchors even more deeply Israel’s profound influence on our government, and on our society.

    There’s a lot of disparagement of Fox News, but a few years ago Fox had an excellent and gutsy 4-part series on the very deep penetration of the Mossad into strategic information and control points of our society:”

    Yep, I remember the day both me and Jose Mauricio Bidencio came to America. Even then he knew he was destined for greatness.
    As we were riding in the coyote’s truck he looked across the Tejas countryside and with a forlorn look in his eye he said: “I wheel bee Presidente son day”. That day we bought a couple of Hawaiian birth certificates in Austin.
    All he needs now is for the toothless Tennesseasians to prove Barack unfit.

    People who do not know the law/Constitution should not be allowed to write the laws. DUH! If one of Obama’s parents (i.e., his mother) was an American citizen, it doesn’t matter where on the F***ing planet he was born — he’s a citizen.

    [re=244555]Crazybroad[/re]: Actually the Constitution says: No person except a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the United States, at the time of the adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President;

    So you either have to have been born in the USA (unlike, for example, John McCain) or be a naturalized citizen born before 1783 or so.

    We could have skipped the whole damned election since Obama was born in Hawaii and McCain was born in a tin horn dictator-ruled banana republic.

  • tentrevivalmutants

    I’ve had the misfortune of living in this state for most of my pathetic life. So, having grown up in Memphis, lived for a time in middle TN, and now living in Knoxville, I can attest that Tennessee secretes stupid at both ends. In west TN our elected officials danced while ‘shakin them haters off’, in middle TN my friends mother had the pool cleaned after some nigras swam in it, and in Knoxville the Tinfoil Hat Brigade is preparing to be raptured from the corner tent revival at any minute because that damn muslin’s in power. You have to be careful while out in public, because if you accidentally brush up against a TN resident, the stupid secretions could get all over you, and then you’re up shit creek. TVA must be regularly dumping big bags of stupid in our water supply. Only thing I can figure.
