Baby! Let's get it on!

Senator Barack Hussein Obama was spinning one of his yarns again:
As another example, consider Obama's stirring tale for the Selma audience about how he had been conceived by his parents, Barack Obama Sr. and Ann Dunham, because they had been inspired by the fervor following the "Bloody Sunday" voting rights demonstration that was commemorated March 4. "There was something stirring across the country because of what happened in Selma, Ala.," he said, "because some folks are willing to march across a bridge. So they got together and Barack Obama Jr. was born. So don't tell me I don't have a claim on Selma, Ala. Don't tell me I'm not coming home to Selma, Ala."
Woohoo! Unfortunately, what really was stirring was mostly Obama's ne'er-do-well father:
Obama was born in 1961, and the Selma march occurred four years later, in 1965. The New York Times reported that when the senator was asked about the discrepancy later that day, he clarified: "I meant the whole civil rights movement."
Yeah, right. Read a little about Obama pere and see what you think. Hmm, maybe Dad thought it was a sit-in at the free lunch counter.
