Kansas officials are on the case.

Yesterday Kansas officials were set to rule on whether or not Barack Obama could be on the ballot in Kansas due to not being an American citizen.

But hold the phone.  The Objections Commission in Kansas is delaying judgment until Monday.

The State Objections Board comprised of Secretary of State Kris Kobach, Attorney General Derek Schmidt and Lt. Gov. Jeff Colyer postponed until Monday action on a complaint filed by a Manhattan resident pending review of a copy of Obama’s birth certificate from Hawaii.

Way to investigate guys – make sure you dig deep and get to the heart of the matter.  Way to make sure you have all the facts before you do something that makes the leadership of Kansas look like a bunch of oblivious white dudes who stumbled into the capitol building.  That these people are leading a state instead of getting bossed around by the chief fry cook is an indictment on our citizenry.

The oceanic disparity in talent and basic competence between the two parties right now would be so much less depressing if people weren’t somehow still voting for Republicans.
