SCOTUS cacks up another PUMA hairball 

Leo C. Donofrio, natural-born idiot:
Supreme Court Declines to Hear Obama Nationality Case
[WaPo / Dec. 07, 2008]

The Supreme Court this morning unceremoniously declined to hear an emergency appeal from a man who claimed President-elect Barack Obama is not qualified for the presidency because he is not a "natural-born" citizen.

The court without comment declined to hear "Donofrio v. Wells," a suit that had attempted to keep Obama off the New Jersey ballot. Leo Donofrio of East Brunswick had claimed Obama had dual nationality at birth, because of his Kansas-born mother and his Kenyan-born father, who was a British subject at the time.


In fact, both were routine procedures, as the court's action today shows. There were no recorded dissents to the decision dismissing the case.


Back to playing strip poker with Alfonse D'Amato. (I'll see your condo in Arkansas and raise you a book deal with Regnery Publishing!)

Who will get Hillary Clinton's NY senate seat? 

Replacing Senator Clinton (NYTimes / Dec. 07, 2008).
The list of mentioned possibilities already reads like a state Democratic Party caucus: Attorney General Andrew Cuomo; Congressman Brian Higgins of Buffalo; Thomas Suozzi, the Nassau County executive; Caroline Kennedy; William Thompson, the city comptroller; Congresswoman Kirsten Gillibrand of Hudson; and Adolfo CarriĆ³n, the Bronx borough president, to name a few.

I have a suggestion:
Congressman John Hall from New York's 19th congessional district and a member of New York State's Congressional Progressive Caucus.
