Well, there y'go: the LDS solves the Obama birth certificate controversy

UPDATE: I'm experimenting with publishing this reformatted, to see if it's the O-letter that hosed my template.

UPDATE II: well, I'll be dipped. Obama hosed my template. Thanks for the tip, MesaMike.

I've shared that someone with a wicked sense of humor evidently subscribed me to the White House's "faith press" mailing list.

I just got this. Here you go, Carlo and everyone — mystery solved! If the Mormon temple has all of O's genealogical information, I guess we can write RESOLVED on this one, eh?

Oh, wait -- I guess they can do their thing if they know to whom someone was born, without knowing where, is that right?

Then... nevermind.

CR said...

Aw shucks...and I had such high hopes.

Mesa Mike said...

Nevermind where he was born. That's not important, is it?

Sir Aaron said...

Did the geneaology come from the same angel Josep Smith got his material?

Susan said...

Eh???

(That's all I can manage to utter right now.)

DJP said...

Well-said.

Today, the president met with leaders of the "Purpose Driven Church" where delegates presented him with the entire collection of "Purpose-Driven" books, workbooks, clocks, posters, embroidered pillows, mugs, t-shirts and coloring books.

The the church's leader personally presented the president with an iPod filled with every one of his sermons, sermonettes, khutbas, drashas, and homilies. It also included a bonus track of more than 7 hours of the pastor's aphorisms and pithy slogans.

Moments after the meeting, Pres. Obama renounced his citizenship and announced he would be moving to Kenya, saying only that he refuses to live in a country that tolerates torture.

Good one, Paula. You had me going there until I got to the end.

Give Paula a cracker, she rocks!

And, Sir Aaron, I have the same question.
