Sense Mrs G is no longer posting things hoping they would stick:

Official site of Dreams from My Real Father (2012)

Has there ever been any other president with so many conspiracy theories tied to them? I mean I remember Bush and the Skull and Bones theories but I can't really remember any other president, at least in modern times that has a whole section of the internet taken up by conspiracy theories.

History will laugh at the "far left" narratives spewed by the right.

The halo is back officially kicking off the 2012 campaign season in the mainstream press.

Yes, but it's a gay halo, and everyone knows that angels can't be gay, because angels are from the Bible.

^I agree. But Newsweek is kind of lame in general. I just got subscription as part of my NPR membership and I haven't been particularly impressed. I like TIME much better--I've been a paying subscriber for something like 15 years!

It doesn't even make sense, and it's so tokenistic... they would have been better served going with that cartoon Obama on a unicorn shooting rainbows from his hands that's been doing the rounds.

with that sketchy birth certificate and both of his parents dead,
I guess his country of origin will always be debatable

Has removing the prohibition on foreign-born individuals from becoming President been seriously discussed in the US? I haven't seen it, but obviously I'm not American and have only kept loose tabs on this whole silly "birther" debate. It seems to me a wholly unnecessary prohibition that has led to a wholly unnecessary debate and conspiracy theory.

I mean, Australia has had six Prime Ministers born overseas, including the current PM, and New Zealand has had twenty-two, which is more than the amount of Kiwi-born PMs!* Australia requires electoral candidates to renounce any foreign citizenships they may hold (so I'll never be able to stand for election here, as I'd sooner gnaw off my own hands than renounce my New Zealand citizenship), but New Zealand doesn't. Haven't had any subversive agents of foreign powers yet! Hell, three out of New Zealand's four longest serving PMs were born overseas.

*The important disclaimer here being that formal colonisation of New Zealand only began in 1840, with the first PM taking office in 1856 - given that only three Kiwi PMs have been aged under forty, it's unreasonable to expect any of the twelve pre-1880 Prime Ministers to have been born in New Zealand rather than the UK. This exception doesn't apply to Australia, since federation took place over a century after colonisation began; I'm sure plenty of state premiers in the 19th century were UK-born.

Not to my recollection, no. We should discuss that issue a bit more, though, 'cause it'd be interesting to see what people think of the idea of changing that law. I mean, we had Schwartzenegger run California, so if someone who wasn't born here can run a state, I don't see why we can't allow them to be president.

(I know people hate Schwartzenegger, though, 'cause California's in a world of hurt right now financially. So that's not the best example. But still, you get my overall point, hopefully ?)

As long as somebody runs the country in a competent, decent, intelligent manner, that's all I'm interested in. I really couldn't care less what part of the world they're from.

I'm still waiting for someone to tell me The Governator was an epic troll.

Arnold Schwarzenegger was the GOVERNOR of CALIFORNIA.
