    The supreme court has rejected some idiot/patriot's attempt to prevent the USA electing it's 8th British president.

    His father was Kenyan, which means that Obama held dual citizenship as a Brit and an American until he was twenty-one.

    Does that mean we could have our first Panamanian President?

    John McCain was born on a naval base in the Panama Canal Zone to a US serviceman stationed there.

    I think a US naval base is US territory and not technically part of Panama, but I guess it depends on Panamanian law.

    I thought that when McCain was born, the entire world consisted of the Tigris-Euphrates river delta... :confused:

    Beer is supposed to be warm. Lager is chilled.

    I don't think the case ever would have made the news, if it wasn't for the idiot Justice Thomas not dismissing any thought of it out of hand.

    Pity really - the UK could use some new politicians about now.
    They sent you David Beckham after his career was over - you could have sent Mr Obama once you were done with him.

    (Given the way things are going in the UK, do you know if Ms Palin has any British grandparents ?)
