It Depends on What the Meaning Of Is, Is


[Editors note: Someone sent this story to me in a email.]


"In an AP government class, they were discussing the qualifications to be President of the United States. They are pretty simple: The candidate must be a natural born citizen and at least 35 years of age. One girl in the class immediately started complaining about how unfair the requirement to be a natural born citizen was. In short, her opinion was that this requirement prevented many capable individuals from becoming president. KC and the class were just taking it in and letting her rant, but everyone's jaw hit the floor when she wrapped up her argument by stating, 'What makes a natural born citizen any more qualified to lead this country than one born by c-section?'"


[As a mother of four of those unnaturally born citizens, I wholeheartedly concur. ~cn]

I was gearing up to be outraged by what I thought was going to be yet another story of "politcal correctness" taken to the extreme, so when I got to the last line, I literally sputtered in my coffee cup and made a mess laughing out loud!!!!

That was GREAT...thanks for sharing.
