the audacity of mars

this crazy conspiracy theory seems unmoored even for a conspiracy theory. i mean, birthers may be nuts, but if they were right (that is, if the president really weren't born in the u.s. and if the law would not automatically grant him citizenship through his mother no matter where he was born), then obama would not be eligible to be president of the united states. if, on the other hand, obama had been twice secretly teleported to mars during the 1980s as part of a top-secret CIA project, he would still be eligible to be president. he would just be a president with an even cooler past.
