Richard Shelby channels Alan Keyes

I did not plan on writing anything about Alan Keyes. Keyes is, after all, mentally unbalanced and debating or refuting someone who does not possess his facilities is not a good use of time.

Until... Republican Senator Richard Shelby, who used tax dollars to finance the undercutting of American Auto Companies by foreign ones, echoed Keyes by stating, "I haven’t seen any birth certificate. You have to be born in America to be president.”

I'll not waste time posting more of the Keyesian elocution (watch the video here if you wish), I'm certain most people interested have, at least, a passing understanding. What's important to take away is Shelby an elected Republican would undercut the President in a time of War, surely earning him a firing squad. Wait, what's that? That only works against Democrats? Oh...

Andrew Sullivan calls for leaders of the Republican party to disown the remarks but instead Shelby claps them to his chest.

And blah blah blah Shelby is a disgrace blah blah blah. I mean I haven't seen documentation that Richard Shelby is not insane. Therefore, Richard Shelby is insane, right? Isn't that how syllogistic logic works?
