Obama’s Coast Province General Hospital (CPGH), Mombasa, British Protectorate of Kenya, certificate of birth was issued in the year 1961. Does the certificate of birth contain typography and kerning which was not yet possible at that time in history?
Dr. Conspiracy wrote, with the aid of a furtive and seemingly delusive and self-proclaimed pressman (calls himself “Sean” and has a friend named “Howling Coyote”) with a curriculum vitae supposedly dating to the 1950s, that Obama’s 1961 CPGH Kenyan certificate of birth is a forgery on grounds that the document contains, in their opinion, an example of kerning in which the descender (i.e., part of a letter that extends below the level of its base, e.g, the bottoms of g,j,y,q and p) of the letter y hangs under the letter n in the word Kenya.
It is the position of Dr. Conspiracy, ‘Sean’ and ‘Howling Coyote’ that such kerning was not yet possible in 1961. Dr. Conspiracy’s cowplops (03.15.2011 & 03.19.2011) are linked directly below:
The kerning in question is, as stated in paragraph 2 of this report, that of the y and the n in Kenya:
I’m not sure whether or not the descender of the y really does, or doesn’t, hang under the n in the Kenya. The document is a 2009 certified copy of an original 1961 document and is, to some extent, blurry and askew. It could go either way I suppose, 50/50.
What I have ascertained though is that Dr. Conspiracy and the furtive and self-proclaimed pressman/men had nearly absolutely no idea what they were talking about.
What I have below is what I what I’d like to call the Obot/Birther Challenge. Below I have provided a list of words which I have scanned and subsequently embedded to this blog report. I have divided the list of word scans into two groups, descenders and ascenders.
We already went over, in paragraph 2, what descenders are. So what then are ascenders? Ascenders are the part of a letter that extends above the main part (e.g., the tops of b,d,f,h,k and l).
I’d like for you, the reader (birther, obot and the impartial), to tell me whether or not any of the decenders hang under an adjacent letter. Answer separately for each scanned word. Likewise with the ascenders, please me tell whether or not any of them hang over an adjacent letter. Again, answer separately for each scanned word:
