McCain the alien

Man, does this guy look old or what? His skin looks like paper.

I've heard of only two TV reports handling the question of whether John McCain is a "natural-born citizen" of the US as demanded by the Constitution: once on the Today show (hard-hitting journalism!) and a fleeting mention on CNN today. (Thank GOD someone in the work cafeteria changed it off Faux for a few minutes; but never fear! someone changed it right back)
My guess on this is that it's just much ado about nothing; back in prehistoric time when McGeezer was hatched, the Panama Canal Zone was considered US soil. (By the way, you can read an interesting take on the entire Panama Canal Zone issue in John Perkins' Confessions of an Economic Hitman.)
I googled "McCain natural born" and got a few hits, including this one from the UK's Times. What do you think: Does this story have any chance of taking hold? Does it signal the potential return of Mittens?

Plus the dude was born to American parents. Not that America existed during the Mesozoic.

And I know this is going out on a limb, but you might work with wankers.

this will go nowhere
i think it is nazirightists, neocons and ultracons trying anything to get rid of the guy they hate

This is really interesting. I had no idea about McCain and and his citizenship. Figures, doesn't it?

I think with American parents, he's safe.
My sister's partner was born in Germany while her daddy was stationed there. When she turned 18she was given the option of choosing which citizenship she wanted. She chose American.
As another military brat, I'm sure Walnuts made the same choice.
Nope, no story here.

That was US soil at the time, pure and simple.

And as D-cap says- the hatahs who hate McCain are just being ultra-hatah.

His skin is creepy though. He is creepy though.

And so is she!

Naah, no one will challenge his right to be President. Especially with this Supreme Court.

McCain may be creepy but Mittens was creepier. I'll take McCain over the Stepford Man.

1936? Damn the marvels of modern medicine, damn-it!

His wife looks as though she has been fixed in formalin, perhaps she is of similar vintage.

It might be a difficult argument to make about an American war hero, not matter how much truth there is to it.

On the other hand, here is a video of McCain being a real dickhead.

Randal--I don't think there's any "might" about it....

D-cap--you're probably right. But it would be hilarious if Mittens suddenly re-emerged!

PiNY-Me neither!

Karen--and yet wasn't it Fuckabee who supported a proposal to deny citizenship to children of illegal aliens here in the US?

Fran--it's like old wax paper that's been dried out by the sun.

Maui--true--the Supremes would never deny Mr. Patriot Guy his god-given right.

GKL--damn that Dr. Frankenstein!

Barbara--that's it--"fixed in formalin"--I have noticed her expression never changes.

Dr Z--and yet if somehow an illegal immigrant from Mexico managed to get into the army and go do something heroic in Iraq, he'd probably still be kicked out on his ass. Video of McCain being a dickhead? Isn't that him pretty much 24/7?
