I'm sure that most of my readers are aware of the Obama birth certificate controversy in which some believe that by not making his Certificate of Live Birth public, it is indicated that the president may be hiding his birthplace. (The birthplace is assumed to be Kenya.)
Now there's a new Obama birth "scandal" about which the butt-planted classes--of which I am one--are making a big deal. In this one, a MySpace page exists listing the president's age as 52 rather than 48. It is alleged that such would make a difference as to the president's citizenship eligibility even if he were born in Hawaii because Hawaii was not yet a state in 1957.
Leave aside the error and the ridiculousness of the assertion. If it were true that that Barack Obama Jr. were four years older than he claims to be, that would mean that Barack Obama Sr. could not be his biological father since the latter came to America via the Mboya Airlift on the same airplane as my father in the Year of Our Lord 1959.
This would also make the COLB/birthplace issue a moot point. Just saying.
