My sister has dual citzenship having been born in Ireland, and my brother and I obtained Irish passports a few years ago because our mother and grandmother were born there. None of us is running for President (sadly), but I would expect the Baggers to get all huffy about "where his loyalties lay". Doubt it will happen though. Some great tweets on this here.

WASHINGTON — Born in Canada to an American mother, Ted Cruz became an instant U.S. citizen. But under Canadian law, he also became a citizen of that country the moment he was born.

Unless the Texas Republican senator formally renounces that citizenship, he will remain a citizen of both countries, legal experts say.

That means he could assert the right to vote in Canada or even run for Parliament. On a lunch break from the U.S. Senate, he could head to the nearby embassy — the one flying a bright red maple leaf flag — pull out his Calgary, Alberta, birth certificate and obtain a passport.

“He’s a Canadian,” said Toronto lawyer Stephen Green, past chairman of the Canadian Bar Association’s Citizenship and Immigration Section.

Garry Trudeau manages to plow through all of those most-absent/vacationy-president-ever, Blame Obama, and produce-a-birth-certificate memes, all while sliding in a shot at the Fox vacation police and George W. Bush's endless brush-clearing jaunts.

Compact, efficient, clever, informative, and snarky.

My hero.

Via Wiki Answers:

During 2 terms as President, Bush took spent all of part of 477 days at Camp David, on retreats and made 77 trips to his Crawford Ranch, in Texas, where he spent all or part of 490 days, on his Ranch.

The total number of days of vacation or retreat President Bush took, while in office over a period of 8 years was 967 days, or 32% of his total time in office, was spent on vacations or retreats.

Lazy, good-for-nothing, evil gay French Kenyan Texan!

Quickie- Trump releases birth certificate to Bill Maher, demands $5M

Doesn't seem to be iron clad proof to me, need something more like a dna test. (Tell me that pic doesn't look like an angry orangutan!)

Donald Trump has placed himself in the middle of another controversy involving a birth certificate—this time his own.

In a letter obtained by Yahoo News, the real estate mogul and de facto leader of last year's "birther" movement against President Barack Obama sent a copy of his New York City birth certificate to comedian Bill Maher, who earlier this week made a Trump-like demand to see it.

On Monday's "Tonight Show With Jay Leno," Maher said he would donate $5 million to the charity of Trump’s choice (Maher suggested Hair Club for Men, among others) if the "Celebrity Apprentice" host could prove he is not the "spawn of his mother having sex with an orangutan." Maher was mocking Trump's much-publicized announcement in October that he would donate $5 million to charity if Obama would release his college records.

On Tuesday, a lawyer for Trump sent the letter to Maher with the birth certificate attached, asking the "Real Time" host to make good on his late-night offer:


Three months have gone by in one of the craziest election years I've ever seen. We're hoping you had as much fun (and angst) as we did on the ride, and if you can, a donation to keep us running would be greatly appreciated.

It's just the two of us, with Lucian handling the tech stuff, doing this whole shebang, day after day. We love it and love interacting with ya'll, but the server
and all sorts of sundry tidbits need to get paid. If we somehow brighten your day, educate or even irritate you at times, please consider a donation, big or small, to keep us bumping along. If everyone who dropped by on a daily basis dropped a coin in the bucket, we'd be done in no time. If you'd like a snail mail address, email me at paddy at thepoliticalcarnival dot net. Thank you.

Here's the clip of the joke in context. Snap:

It's nice to have a president with a good sense of humor as opposed to say, a robot who lies, a la Mitt Romney.
