“This is a a very odd thing for Christopher Hitchens to say. According to an old drinking buddy of Hitch’s, he used to claim he was ‘the world’s biggest anti-Semite,’ but then, Hitchens made the belated discovery that he is something like 1/8th or 1/16th Jewish through the maternal line.”
PLUS: Sailer claims he’s discovered “the identity of Obama’s estranged half-brother”.
One commenter writes:
“…you could plausibly argue that Obama’s father’s marriage to Obama’s mother could only possibly have been valid in a country which recognized polygamy [like Kenya? — presumably Obama’s father was a Muslim Kenyan if Obama ended up with a middle name like ‘Hussein’], hence the child of that bigamous marriage could not have been subject to the jurisdiction of the the United States, hence such a child, not being born a citizen of the United States, would not be eligible to become President, as per Article II, Section 1:
“‘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; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.’
“So, by that argument, if you wanted to be able to install Obama as the American President, then you would have to declare that Obama’s father’s ‘marriage’ to Obama’s mother was null & void, ergo Obama is a bastard, at which point the trivia question becomes: Has there ever been a bastard who was President of the United States?”
