That Will Be Fun

With all the chatter about Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) running for president in 2016, I wonder how the birthers will explain that being born in Canada to a mother who was a U.S. citizen makes you a natural-born citizen, whereas being born in Hawai’i to a mother who was a U.S. citizen makes you ineligible to hold the office.

I’m sure they’ll come up with something.

HT to rubber hose.

3 barks and woofs on “That Will Be Fun

  1. This is one time when they might get away with whining “the Dems did it too.”

    Or they could fall back on their usual paranoia about scary dark men… oh, wait, Rubio is several shades darker than Edgar Winter.

    I guess it’ll be “Well, Michael Moore is fat.”

    Yeah, that’s it.

  2. This one’s easy. Cruz is (IIRC) Cuban – which means he has no meaningful Otherness, so there won’t be anything from the Very Serious Conservatists. And since he’s not a blah person, the birthers (who are, after all, more outraged that one of Those people got elected than that his family might have come from somewhere else many generations ago) won’t utter a peep.
