To prove the idiocy of the assertion by the courts that no state has the authority to question the credentials of a candidate for president, why not manufacture credentials – birth certificate, SSN, draft registration, etc. – for a real or fictitious person and have that person placed on the ballot for president? Force the hand to validate a candidate. It doesn’t matter whether it’s Mickey Mouse or Sarkozy. If the argument is that someone just has to appear to be a citizen and doesn’t have to “prove” it, then anyone can manufacture credentials and ignore doubters.
