    Texas Republican Files Birther Bill

    A state representative on Tuesday filed a bill that would require any candidate for president or vice president of the United States to show his or her birth certificate to the Texas secretary of state, another indication of just how ambitious the conservative agenda for next year's session of the Texas Legislature is expected to be.
    That's it, folks. From now on, any time I leave Texas to visit another state, I will be sure to cover my license plate, and wear a bag over my head. I don't want anybody to know that I am from the state that has the bat as it's official state seal. The stupidity here in Texas has now become overwhelmingly embarrassing.

    Actually, I think it doesn't go far enough. Any candidate for Congress at both Federal and State levels should have to be vetted by the FBI to assure the public that they meet the requirements for holding the office for which they're running. This should be done before their names go on a ballot.

    Actually, they already do that, and have been doing that for decades. But that's not good enough for the bat**** insane crowd.

    I doubt anyone would notice if we did. Well, at least people would notice the general stupidity quotient had gone down with Bob Stoops' demise.

    As to the topic of the thread, I think anyone running for office should have to produce a document showing that he/she is basically sane. Not everyone has that.

    That's too stupid to pass. What a waste of legislative time.

    A candidate from Wisconsin, running for prez, would have to submit a BC to the Texas secretary of state? I'd like to see them enforce that one.

    I'd also find this a shameful waste of the Texas legislative time and energy they should be doing something more with their time in office they have left. . You know what I am proud of were I come from regardless of stupid asses in the legislative process are bring down IQ points here in Texas.
