Consider if this was George W. Bush

The Miami Herald reports on a soldier who's refusing to deploy to Afghanistan ... because he believes Barack Obama is not constitutionally permitted to be president of the United States:

U.S. Army Maj. Stefan Frederick Cook is seeking a federal court order to stall and eventually prevent an upcoming deployment to Afghanistan.

In the 20-page document — filed July 8 with the United States District Court, Middle District of Georgia — Cook's California-based attorney, Orly Taitz, asks the court to consider granting his client's request based upon Cook's belief that President Barrack Obama is not a natural-born citizen of the United States and is therefore ineligible to serve as commander-in-chief of U.S Armed Forces.

Cook further states he "would be acting in violation of international law by engaging in military actions outside the United States under this President’s command, and that Plaintiff would thus be simultaneously unable to perform his duties in good Rule 65(b) Application for Temporary Restraining Order 22 conscience and yet be simultaneously subjecting himself to possible prosecution as a war criminal by the faithful execution of these duties."

Now if I was of a sort like these cretins, I might make a blogging case out of this. After all, these are the fops that posted multiple times about Sarah Palin's mentally retarded baby not really being hers, among many other lunacies.

Nevertheless, if I recall correctly, the SCOTUS has already shot down several suits challenging Obama's "real" birthplace, so I expect this will simply be another waste of time for the high court.

the funniest part of this is that I read somewhere (instapundit?) that the government revoked this loon's orders. Link went to a nirther site that proclaimed this as a huge victory since the government obviously could not defend Obama's US citizenship in court.

Apparently the thought that schizophrenia does not make a good military officer was lost on them.
