George Washington wasn't born in the United States either. Do the Tea Partiers know this? What do they make of it?
Right before the election I took a cab to an airport and the driver started going on and on about how Obama was a communist, etc, etc, etc... I was just nodding to everything, but when he said that Obama wasn't not even born in this country I told him "so what, even if that were true, McCain wasn't born in the US either".
Me: "Yeah, he was born in Panama".
So I had to open wikipedia on my phone and show him.
He was in such shock that we almost got into a car accident.
Lesson of the day: if a crazed republican is ranting about politics while he's driving the vehicle you're in, agree with everything they say.
