    My opinion, he's laughing at all the nutbars.

    "We are evading that."

    Doesn't sound at all like Justice Thomas was mocking any of the birthers.

    But it does sound like a concession that the Constitutional NBC requirement for Presidential Eligibility is seen as a dead letter issue.

    He got his little shot in.

    Ayep....sounds like a slick politician-type answer to me....a non answer to (what he knows is) a very importation question (which he doesn't want to answer).

    I do this all the time with my kids. I use the word "Maybe" when they want something, which gives me the wiggle room I need to decide "Yes" or "No" later. :lol:

    I fully encourage the GOP to adopt and adapt to the birther message.

    It in now way makes you look crazy.

    I think they can take the WH in 2012 with this Trifecta:

    1. Run Palin

    2. Run their own Tea Party Candidates

    3. Make the Birther message a major part of their platform.

    I fully agree. No better way to kill off, I mean, revive the party than do this.

    In all seriousness, I believe this country needs two viable parties, and I anxiously await the opportunity to welcome the GOP back from the loony bin.

    The Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States of America does not speak for the GOP.

    What you recommend (facetiously or otherwise) in this regard is irrelevant. Justice Thomas' quip is not something which exactly opens the flood gates to the "birther" debate, anyway.

    Obama's citizenship has been brought to the USSC for consideration how many times now? Three? And each time, it gets buried, probably in the "You Must Be Joking" docket files.
