What's the problem here? Why is this so hard?

Yesterday I revealed that because both of the two major candidates are disqualified from being president, the election is a nullity, because no matter who "wins," the result will be the final triumph of Bush fascism:

What has Bush always wanted more than anything else?

Why, the cancellation of elections and the permanent implementation of Bush fascism, that's what. Yes, I've been blogging about it for years, because Bush has been at it for years.

Only this time, it's for real!

So, as I see it, even if the court does the right thing, and declares that both Obama and McCain are ineligible to serve, the only way to do that will be to cancel the election -- precisely what Bush has wanted all along.

I stuck my neck out and wrote the above because, well, like Philip Berg and Paul Andrew Mitchell, I care.

I'd even go so far as to say -- if I may quote Andrew Sullivan -- that it's my job to care!

"I haven't let the basic issue of accountability and transparency go. Never. It's my job."
And you know what? Andrew Sullivan cares about deeper, more important questions than the eligibility of the two leading candidates. He even cares about the real parentage of the vice presidential candidate's babies:
Now, when are we going to get some record of Trig's birth and parentage from the hospital or the doctor? It's been over a month now and still nada. Some basic record confirming Palin's eight-month special needs pregnancy, amiocentesis, labor and birth would be immensely easy to find and release - even off the record - to news organizations. And yet the McCainiacs refuse to even go near it and demonize anyone who dares ask for something that must be extremely well documented and easily found. They have stated on the record that Sarah Palin is Trig's biological mother. But they refuse to provide one iota of confirming evidence.

I mean: what's the problem here? Why is this so hard?

You know, he's absolutely right! And as a blogger who cares deeply about accountability, I see no reason why our duty to inquire should stop with Sarah Palin.

I mean, even if they have "stated on the record that Sarah Palin is Trig's biological mother," has the Obama-Biden campaign stated on the record that Michelle Obama is the biological mother of Malia Ann and Sasha? Is Barack Obama the biological father?

How do we know?

Where is a single iota of confirming evidence? Why won't the Obamas release the DNA test results? Perhaps because they haven't had these simple tests done? Why not?

What's the problem here? Why is this so hard?

Likewise, what about, Joseph Biden III, Robert Hunter Biden, Naomi Christina Biden, and Ashley Blazer Biden? Has anyone provided one iota of confirming evidence of the identities of their biological parents?

What's the problem here? Why is this so hard?

Don't laugh. I'm just doing my job!

URGENT UPDATE: In light of the growing debate over who is the real father of Barack Obama (damning pictures here), I think it might be time to apply the "Sullivan standard" to that too.

As I said in an email earlier,

It's in my nature to be skeptical, but I'm watching Andrew Sullivan closely to see when he calls for DNA testing!

I think the Sullivan fairness standard should be rigorously applied to all candidates, and I'm waiting to see leadership from Andrew!

Well, guess what? Andrew has specifically called for such testing to determine Trig's paternity, saying,
The answers to those questions can easily be provided. . .
Bear in mind that Trig Palin is far, far from being a candidate.

Considering that we're talking about the president here, I think the situation cries out for the most rigorous possible application of the Sullivan standard.

What's the problem here? Why is this so hard?

Surely the Sullvan standard is not a double standard?

Who is Barack Obama's real father?

Is it Frank Marshall Davis?

C'mon, Eric!

We don't need no Obama mama drama!

If they're both ineligible, that would not be cause to suspend the elections. There are other parties and candidates out there, you know.

If Sullivan is so intent upon the answer, I think he ought to ambush Todd Palin with the question.

The interview could be broadcast on pay-per-view.

Steve Skubinna   ·  October 5, 2008 5:32 AM

I'm convinced.

Obama should have to give a DNA sample to the proper authorities in order to prove that Sullivan is not his father.

Is Barack Obama Andrew Sullivan's Love Child?

M. Simon   ·  October 5, 2008 8:13 PM

I dare Sullivan to deny it.

I double dare Obama to deny it.
