Wouldn’t happen in many, perhaps most countries, or even in US states where “foreign” birth is no deterrent to public office. They simply pick the best person (arguable, I know) for the job, irrespective. But Obama is US-born anyway! So why are these politically-motivated nutcases allowed oxygen in the media? Well I guess that’s the flipside of democracy… anyone can have their say, no matter how devisive and bitter their views may be. But a musical??
Earlier this month an army doctor, Lieutenant Colonel Terrence Lakin, was sentenced to six months in prison and thrown out of the military after he failed to turn up for a tour of duty in Afghanistan, arguing that because of Obama’s foreign birth his orders as commander-in-chief were illegal.
Taitz said that she was now trying to turn the Lakin story into a musical, and is appealing for Andrew Lloyd Webber to contact her.
