The leader of the Birther movement, claiming Barack Obama is not an American citizen, will have to pay a $20,000 fine. The fine was levied by a federal judge in October of 2009, and today, Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito blocked her second request to dismiss the fine. She will be charged twenty grand for "Frivolous Litigation." 

Thank god. There is probably no better definition of "frivolous" than repeatedly trying to disprove the citizenship of the President, especially in a country whose court system is so clogged it takes three months to process a goddamn parking ticket.

The bad news, however, is that fining a nutcase this big will only do one thing: make a slightly less wealthy nutcase. When you are leading a movement so conservative that Samuel Life-Liberty-and-the-right-to-bear-machine-guns Alito had to tell you to knock it off, you are officially too far from reality to be reasoned with.

Also, for someone whose attacks on the president are mostly based on his foreign-sounding name, may I just say, you've got a pretty odd-sounding moniker yourself, Orly.
