Republicans Backing Socialist For President

Several years back I was arguing online with one of my esteemed 'bagger friends about the border fence. They said we'd need it because it would stop terrorists from crossing over from Mexico. "It will be expensive," I insisted, "because don't forget we'll also need one all along the Canadian Border."  Oddly, they didn't believe such a thing could happen. It's almost as if they define "terrorist" as "person browner than us". And no one is whiter than Canadians, even the brown ones.

Anyway, they should have listened, because a Canadian has somehow infiltrated the senate.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) announced late Monday that he will renounce his Canadian citizenship, less than a day after The Dallas Morning News noted that the senator, who was born in Canada to an American mother, is likely a dual citizen.

“Now, The Dallas Morning News says that I may technically have dual citizenship,” Cruz said in a statement. “Assuming that is true, then sure, I will renounce any Canadian citizenship. Nothing against Canada, but I’m an American by birth and as a U.S. senator; I believe I should be only an American.”

I can see it now - the first thing he'd do as president is get us some of that good single-payer Canadian healthcare! And cheap pharmaceuticals! Next, French lessons for everyone.

Still at least he's not one of those Latinos trying to take jobs from Americans.
