    Birthers Move Over and Make Way for Thirteenthers

    I had never heard of this before today, but the thirteenthers are an amazing new addition to anti-Obama crazies, following in the footsteps of the birthers. Iowa Republicans are trying to ratify the original 13th Amendment:

    The current 13th amendment bans slavery, and Iowa Republicans are not in favor of its repeal. They are, however, interested in reintroducing an amendment originally put before the states for ratification back in 1810. It outlawed any person who accepts a “title of nobility” from a foreign country from ever holding political office. The amendment was ratified by 12 states but never got the 13th state that it needed, and thus, never became law.
    The idea being that, since Obama received the Nobel Peace Prize, he would be ineligible to be President of the United States if this amendment ever passed. (Ronald Reagan was knighted, but that came after the presidency. And even if he was still in office, it would probably be okay with Iowa Republicans because, you know, Ronald Reagan.) How come Democrats didn't get this creative from 2000 to 2008? We just went to Michael Moore movies all the time.

    I think the GOP should make this part of their national platform.

    So here is an article in search of a story. :
    You should try to remember, ideas are conveyed by researching information, vetting sources, and confirming said information. Not by regurgitating talking points given to you by your "news" station.

    It doesn't matter. He shouldn't have accepted it, remember?

    It's not like he campaigned for it, but that's hardly the point. The point is the people need to give it a rest. He's the President. They need to get over it.

    I think for something to be a title of nobility, it has contain some sort of governmental authority. The Nobel prize does not grant any.

    Heck, if you count the Nobel prize as a title of nobility, than that would mean lance armstrong could not hold office since he won the tour de france and got a prize.

    Wait, let me get this straight, they want to remove the president from office on the basis of a law that was never passed?

    This is about as fringy as it gets, but I'm sure there are those who will claim it represents the Republicans as a whole, and no doubt the whole Tea Party movement.

    This is little different from the morons who want to remove the term limit set for the President so that Obama can be in office for good.
