Stay up to date with the latest headlines via email.
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 ...
 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].
