Birther Nuts Hail 'Ironic' Arrest of Illegal Kenyan Obama Uncle
Harsh birther blueball: some guy who is apparently Barack Obama's long-lost illegal Kenyan immigrant uncle Onyango Obama turned up in Massachusetts after he wasarrested on a drunk driving charge. You missed by one illegal Kenyan, Massachusetts police! OH WELL, this was still enough parts "illegal Kenyan Obama arrested headline" to put birther mothership web site WorldNetDaily into such a tizzy that its editors started throwing around the word "irony" like they magically know what it means post-some-guy-named-Obama arrest. "Irony can be pretty ironic" they note, like the brain-damaged frat boy from your Humanities 102 seminar explaining that "postmodernism" is the definition of itself. And now we, too, feel brain damaged. How about some more details from the arrest?
From the Boston Herald:
An illegal immigrant from Kenya busted for drunken driving after nearly striking a cop car in Framingham is the uncle of President Obama, the Herald has learned.
Obama Onyango told cops he wanted to “call the White House” after he was nabbed for OUI Aug. 24 after nearly plowing his SUV into a police cruiser. He was arraigned Thursday and was ordered held without bail because he was wanted on a federal immigration warrant, officials said.
Mike Rogers, a spokesman for Cleveland immigration attorney Margaret Wong, who is representing Onyango, confirmed that the 67-year-old is the president’s uncle. Wong is the same lawyer who represented the president’s aunt, Zeituni Onyango, in her fight to win asylum last year.
This is "irony" just "literally" peeing on America, everywhere. [Boston Herald]
