The Week In Conspiracies: Dancing With The Scars
Obama's Hairline Fracture
Finally, the Birthers have hit upon something everyone can agree on: there's something weird about Obama's head.
The website Escape Tyranny, which, with its fiery Mordor-like graphics, is just begging to be taken seriously, found a photo of Obama with a line in his close-cropped hair that apparently proves without a doubt that the president has had secret brain surgery. When confronted with a surgery scar, most sheeple might conclude, "This person appears to have had surgery. Moving along." But Escape Tyranny sees something more sinister in this "discovery":
"Was it a brain operation? Has it affected his thinking? Is he really an alien from another planet, which would explain no birth certificate?" (Yes, that is an actual quote. And no, they don't appear to be joking.)
Going from questions about a person's apparent surgical scar to suspicions that he might be a creature from another planet might seem like a bit of a leap (to those who choose to live in darkness) - not to me, though. That's not a surgery scar because there was no surgery. The barren streak in Obama's hairline is the zipper for the rubber skin-suit that he donned when his planet Zolton sent him here to lord over ours.
That would indeed explain why there's no birth certificate. His alien race may be capable of sending an imposter who can become leader of the free world, but they simply cannot master the kind of embossing and raised-seal technology to forge a birth certificate. We all have our Achilles heel, even those races of alien life that may or may not have heels, or joints of any kind.
Seriously, though, this looks more like a case of a botched haircut than secret brain surgery.
