Is McCain 'Natural-Born?'
The New York Times is at it again. After getting roundly spanked for the irresponsible and prurient speculation used to spice up their otherwise dull, politically motivated hitpiece on the Republican front-runner, the Gray Lady is taking a different tack. This time they're questioning whether John McCain, born to US citizens in the Panama Canal Zone, is a "natural-born citizen" and thus, Constitutionally eligible to serve as President.This latest non-issue was already dealt with to everyone's satisfaction, the first time McCain ran in 2000. This excerpt sounds ominous:
To date, no American to take the presidential oath has had an official birthplace outside the 50 states.Except, of course, for all the Presidents born on British soil before the Revolution and the Constitution made it American. That would include the "Father of the country," George Washington.
