Just when we thought wingnuts might heed President Obama's admonition to recognize it is time to set aside childish things and give up on the eligibility issue, it seems they have come up with a new angle to keep the issue in focus and raise money as well for their nefarious schemes.  

A group of dysfunctional whackjobs calling themselves the New Sons of Liberty want to pass a Constitutional Amendment which would provide a means to enforce Article II, Section I that states the qualifications for President:

Through the power of a Constitutional Amendment, a mechanism that would require candidates for the offices of the President of the United States and Vice President of the United States to present an original, first-source, vaulted birth certificate to the President Pro Tempore of the US Senate no later that forty-eight (48) hours after receiving his political party's nomination.

Further, this Constitutional Amendment would require said candidates to provide all military, scholastic, financial, criminal records in total, along with relevant medical records, to an open source archive to be certified by the Library of Congress and maintained by the National Archive.

These clowns better be careful what they wish for.  If "relevant medical records"  includes psychological testing, none of them would be fit to clean the White House toilets, much less occupy the Oval Office.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
