Wonder Where Obama's Columbia Thesis Went? Hmmm.....

Slate has been assiduously beavering into all and every document concerning Dick Cheney and the Bush Administration, even Cheney's daughter Elizabeth's thesis at Colorado College.

But of course, Obama's original birth certificate, Columbia U. thesis, and various other documents have "disappeared" and no media Stakhanovites are willing to dig and search for those missing pieces of the puzzle that Obama is turning out to be.

His support for an illegal usurpation of powers by a Marxist fossil, a clown named Zelaya trying to illegally engender a referendum without the Constitutional necessity of Legislative agreement, is supported by Hugo Chavez, Daniel Ortega [who lectured a lying-on-his-back-like-a-spaniel pliant Obama during a recent OAS meeting for over an hour], and Evo Morales, who may be supplying the fourth major supporter of the Marxist coup de pouce PotHR named Barry Hussein Obama with white powder that ain't anthrax.

What else could justify such mindless obsequious compliance with Marxist dictator-candidates? Perhaps that "missing" Columbia thesis could give us a clue or two?

Just asking....

UPDATEAnd so is The American Thinker, which astutely ponders how a dude so self-absorbed that he wrote his first autobiography in his early 20's could lose his Columbia thesis on Soviet Nuclear Disarmament, all his "records" as an Illinois State Senator, and somehow his GPAs have also gone into a 1984 Memory Hole.

The American Thinker is more concerned with Cass Sunstein's new book, which has this little teaser alert from The New York Post:
Advance copies of Sunstein's new book, "On Rumors: How Falsehoods Spread, Why We Believe Them, What Can Be Done," have gone out to reviewers ahead of its September publication date, but considering the prominence with which Sunstein is about to be endowed, his worrying views are fair game now. Sunstein is President Obama's choice to head the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs. It's the bland titles that should scare you the most.

In "On Rumors," Sunstein reviews how views get cemented in one camp even when people are presented with persuasive evidence to the contrary. He worries that we are headed for a future in which "people's beliefs are a product of social networks working as echo chambers in which false rumors spread like wildfire." That future, though, is already here, according to Sunstein. "We hardly need to imagine a world, however, in which people and institutions are being harmed by the rapid spread of damaging falsehoods via the Internet," he writes. "We live in that world. What might be done to reduce the harm?"

Can you imagine the hurt that civilization might suffer if an insignificant blogger like myself used his twaddle about "people's beliefs are a product of social networks working as echo chambers in which false rumors spread like wildfire." to castigate Anthropogenic Global Warming, the hoax and "product of social networks" now perpetuated by Democrat fantasists like Barbara Boxer into law? This U. of Chicago Law Prof is going to be appointed White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs and will predictably try to employ intimidation against the non-MSM sources like blogs & radio because "Democrats know that criticism over their conduct often emerges from the web and talk radio since traditional media is so reliably in their corner."

Bye bye First Amendment Rights and Greetings to Doublethink and 1984 all over again---this time as non-fiction.
