A birth certificate matters only if you're a conservative

(Political Outcast) — It’s a good sign for conservatives that Texas Senator Ted Cruz is being attacked by RINOs, Democrats, and liberal papers that only liberals read. The New York Times and the Washington Post are outraged that a Freshman Senator, a Republican no less, has the temerity to take the lead in Senate debates.
Not only that, Jonathan Weissman and the Times refer to “Cruz as ‘Canadian-born.’” What does that mean? I thought we were all through with the birther stuff. I forgot. Birth certificates only matter if you’re a conservative Republican. Remember how John McCain was questioned about where he was born and whether being born in the Panama Canal Zone (also see here) counted as a constitutional “natural born” birth? What the times failed to mention is that “Cruz was born to a mother who was a U.S. citizen, which most likely makes Cruz ‘natural born’ and eligible to run for the nation’s highest office.” Anyway, you don’t have to be a “natural-born citizen” to be a Senator or Governor (e.g., former governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger was born in Austria).
