"Birther" principles defined. Starkly.

Yesterday we wrote about the LtCol who was being tried for refusing to deploy because President Obama hadn’t produced his birth certificate. The Col has gotten a whole lot of play in certain flaky circles because of his refusal about seven months ago. From an article in today’s Seattle Times

BALTIMORE — An Army physician who was convicted of refusing to go to Afghanistan because he questioned whether Barack Obama was eligible to be president said Wednesday he was wrong to disobey orders and would deploy to a war zone “tomorrow.”

Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin, of Greeley, Colo., faces up to 3 ½ years in a military jail and dismissal from the Army after being found guilty Wednesday. If dismissed, he would forfeit his annual salary of nearly $90,000 and a pension.

Well, so much for principles.

Oh and Col Lakin, or is that Mr. Lakin? Think of THIS as “home”.
