The Constitutionator Hits the Airwaves

Next week, a Silicon Valley based public interest group will begin airing a series of Amend for Arnold Ads.

The goal: A constitutional amendment allowing foreign born citizens (especially those with significant lats, traps and delts) to run for president.

The tagline: “You cannot choose the land of your birth. You can choose the land you love.”

Forget for a second that such an amendment could somehow lead to Arnold’s on-set work-out trailer being parked on Pennsylvania Avenue (which given the current power base in the GOP is about as likey as Susan Sarandon getting the nod).

Is there any doubt in anyone’s mind that the current law on the books, requiring a president to be a natural born citizen, is entirely ridiculous and at odds with what America is all about?

And while we’re passing this amendment, maybe we can do something about the more recent law that seems to forbid those from Massachusetts from holding the highest office in the land.

Concentration is important!
