[Obama is] just very, very scary. Now, I know there’s a lot of people that are very skeptical as to whether he was born in Hawaii. Personally I believe that he was. I actually believe he was fibbing about being born in Kenya when he was trying to get into college and doing things like writing a book and on and on and on.

So if there was weird stuff going on, I actually think it was happening back in his college days because I think he has spent $1.5 or $2 million through attorneys to have all the college records and all that stuff sealed. If you’re spending money to seal something, that’s probably where the hanky panky was going on.

Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett proving he’s an even bigger jackass than I thought. When asked about his comments later, Bennett replied, “I have no personal knowledge about what happened.” But he’ll sure pretend he does!

I had emailed Bennett previously about the whole “I’m not a birther, I just play one on TV" thing. He never responded. Total shock, I know. I had to email him again about this egregiously racist claim.

And yes, I call it racist because this is the second time he’s attempted to tie Barack Obama to being Kenyan (or pretending to be Kenyan) in some way — supposedly in the name of vetting him — yet Mittbot™ escapes the same scrutiny. Remember when George W. Bush used to crack jokes about being a C student at Yale? Imagine Barack Obama doing that. 

Go on. Imagine it.

It drives these people up the wall that Barack Obama, a charismatic black man, not only succeeded at an Ivy League University, but went on to have a successful career as a professor and became president. Not to mention he wouldn’t have to spend money to have college records sealed because of privacy law.

In other words, clutch the pearls and pray to all the angels and baby Jesus, because there’s an intruding BLACK man in our WHITE House. </sarcasm>

The cherry on top of this racist sundae is Bennett has formed an exploratory committee to run for governor in 2014. It’s never too late to start pandering to your base.

Anyhow, here’s my email to Ken Bennett. If you’d like to email him too, his email is kbennett@azsos.gov

Dear Mr. Bennett,

I previously wrote you regarding your dabbling in birtherism. To refresh your memory, please view the email here: http://cognitivedissonance.tumblr.com/post/23321374521/my-email-to-ariz-secretary-of-state-ken-bennett

I was thrilled to see you finally back off the pursuit of Barack Obama’s birth certificate after Hawaii satisfied your desires. However, I do believe you should investigate whether or not Mitt Romney is a robot. This is a very real possibility. View the evidence here, here, and here. I have just as much evidence that Romney is a robot as Sheriff Joe Arpaio has that Obama was born in Kenya. But no matter…

I am writing regarding your recent comments about Obama lying about being born in Kenya in order to get into college. You said:

[Obama is] just very, very scary. Now, I know there’s a lot of people that are very skeptical as to whether he was born in Hawaii. Personally I believe that he was. I actually believe he was fibbing about being born in Kenya when he was trying to get into college and doing things like writing a book and on and on and on.

First off, citation needed. Second, I heard a rumor you lied about being a gay Chinese Buddhist from Lincoln, Neb. in order to get into Arizona State University. In reality, you’re a straight white Mormon from Tucson, Ariz. BORING. No wonder you lied.

Please refute these allegations, or else I will assume they are true. After all, I have as much evidence as Arpaio regarding Obama’s birthplace, and just as much evidence about your college attendance as you do about Obama’s. Also, would your office please call for Romney to refute the allegation that he lied about being a human being to get into Harvard.

Cheers,

Meg]
