Election 2012: Mexico vs. Kenya

It's like the World Cup over here! The birthers turn their eyes to Mitt Romney, whose father was born in Mexico and thus, based on a chain of logic too disconnected from the text and historical interpretation of the 14th Amendment for me, as a budding constitutional law professor, to lay out without wanting to shoot myself, may not be a "natural-born citizen" under the 14th Amendment.

But don't worry -- though they do entertain the argument for a little bit, WND ultimately concludes that "even under the strictest interpretation of Article 2, Section 1 of the Constitution, Romney is a natural-born citizen." Given that WND is still pumping the Obama-birther conspiracy theory, that's no small concession!
