A joke gone wild

So anyhow, a bunch of lefties over on Twitter were joking around that since Romney's daddy was born in Mexico, that meant Romney was no more (or less) a "natural born citizen" than Obama is. At which point someone said, "quick, someone tell Crazy Joe over at World Nut Daily!" and sure enough, this morning I got an email blast from Joseph Farah, owner/editor of World Nut Daily, with the Cavuto, "Is Mitt Romney a Natural Born Citizen?"

Dear Crazy Joe: We were JOKING. We weren't being serious. In fact, we were making fun of *you* and your demented crusade to overturn the will of the American voters via legalistic mumbo jumbo about how someone born on American soil might not *really* be a "natural born citizen" (what, he was artificially born?!). I realize that right-wingers have no sense of humor but dude. Get a grip!

  1. It would warm the cockles of my heart if the birthers were to go after Mittens.

    Also, Mr FrothyMix's dad immigrated from Italy at the age of 7ish.

    Just sayin'

    (verify word: allitumb: a tumblr about onions and garlic and such)

  2. I don't give a crap where any president was born.

  3. I want to see his long form birth certificate.

  4. Mittens was born in this country. His parents needed an anchor baby because George was an illegal Mexican.

WARNING: You are entitled to create your own arguments, but you are NOT entitled to create your own facts. If you spew scientific denialism, or insist that the sky is purple, or otherwise insist that your made-up universe of pink unicorns and cotton candy trees is "real", well -- expect the banhammer.
