The Day in Stupid

Pat Robertson has been talking to God again, and this time he's calling the disaster in advance, instead of doing his more frequent Monday-morning quarterbacking. I won't spoil the shocking surprise, but watch for a mushroom cloud-- possible near the local gay bar.

America's first Muslim Congressman totally burns the right-wing critics calling him a heathen traitor. Which is, of course, just how Islamofascists operate-- first you seduce the hate-America-first liberals, then you lock up Christians and start flushing Bibles down the crapper.

The Department of Homeland Security just took its citizenship test, and only managed a B+. Somehow I suspect immigrants are to blame. Or it's been infiltrated by Communists.

Question [No. 33]: The president must be born in what country?

Answer: The United States (or, alternatively, America).

The correct answer, however, is that the president may be born in any country whatsoever, or no country at all (at sea or in a plane). The Constitution requires only that the president be a "natural born citizen," and that status is achieved either by birth in the United States or by birth to parents who are both U.S. citizens, the latter potentially living and reproducing absolutely anywhere in the world.
