Orly Taitz, the one-woman freak show who has kept alive the birther conspiracy alleging that President Obama was not born in the U.S., has been slapped with a $20,000 fine by a federal judge for abusing her privileges as a lawyer.

Balloon Juice, covering the case under the delightful headline, "Don't Taitz Me, Bro," combed through the decision of Judge Clay Land of Georgia's Middle District to find this juicy bit:

[P]erhaps an eccentric citizen has become convinced that the President is an alien from Mars, and the courts should order DNA testing to enforce the Constitution [7]...

[7] The Court does not make this observation simply as a rhetorical device for emphasis; the Court has actually received correspondence assailing its previous order in which the sender, who, incidentally, challenged the undersigned to a "round of fisticuffs on the Courthouse Square," asserted that the President is not human."

Taitz also alleged a secret rendez-vous in Georgia between the judge and Attorney General Eric Holder on a day taht found Holder in Los Angeles. You can read Judge Land's decision here [PDF].
