The Birther Bill

What is the problem with the so called “Birther Bill,” put forth in the US house or representatives as “H.R. 1503 – The Presidential Eligibility Act”  Here is the text of the act, as of 8/12/09, direct from the Government Printing Office

HR 1503 IH

111th CONGRESS

1st Session

H. R. 1503

To amend the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971 to require the principal campaign committee of a candidate for election to the office of President to include with the committee’s statement of organization a copy of the candidate’s birth certificate, together with such other documentation as may be necessary to establish that the candidate meets the qualifications for eligibility to the Office of President under the Constitution.

Garry Trudeau, the author of the Doonesbury comic strip and husband of Jane Pauley, thinks he has it figured out.  He expresses his logic below…

Doonesbury 090812

I’ve heard that the some of the founding fathers thought it was important that the President of the United States be a non-naturalized citizen.   Garry Trudeau’s wise words got me wondering if some of the founding fathers had, in fact, been Nazis.  You can imagine my shock when I found this painting of James Madison in the musty basement of a Philadelphia tavern…

The facts have become very clear to me now.  Madison is considered by many to be the father of American system of government.  But his involvement is just the tip of the iceberg.  The next painting shows the military lunatic, George Washington, rallying other criminals to sign that dastardly Nazi document, the Constitution of the United States.  If you look closely you can see several party members raising their arms in the traditional Nazi salute.  Help stop these madmen and make the office of President of the United States a safe ambition for all citizens of the world – tell your congressman to vote against “H.R. 1503 – The Presidential Eligibility Act.”

George Washington rallies other nazis to sign document that requires the President of the United States to be a non-naturalized citizen.

  1. Nice job! I like the George Washington revelation. These guys were ahead of their time: introducing Nazism to the world a full century and a half ahead of the 3rd Reich. In some circles, they might be called them visionaries.

  2. Have you considered using this as the basis for a screenplay?
