They're baaack....
As if there's nothing more important on which to focus, and to drag Arizona's reputation further into the deep chasm of humiliation, 41 members of the Arizona State Legislature have signed on to re-introduce the "Birther Bill," which would require anyone who wants to run for president or vice-president to prove their U.S. citizenship before their name's allowed on the ballot in Arizona -- even though it happens to already be a federal requirement to land either job.

As we pointed out the last time this bill was introduced, by Republican state Representative Judy Burges of NumbSkull Valley, we're not saying that wanting to prove a candidate is a naturally born American citizen -- again, as already required by law to run for President of the United States -- is a bad thing. The problem, however (aside from it already being a federal law), is that the move seems to be in direct response to the repeatedly debunked controversy over President Barack Obama's citizenship and the right-wing conspiracy theorist "birther" movement.

As the state's budget deficit creeps past the tune of $2 billion, the following bozos have apparently spent their time watching the Manchurian Candidate and obsessing over a Hawaiian birth certificate.

Read the full bill here, and keep in mind, these folks will all be up for re-election soon -- rather than cast your vote for any of them, you'd probably be better served by simply mailing them tin-foil helmets.

With the amount of foreigners living now in Arizona, I wouldn't be surprised if there is already one or two state legislators who have been elected whose citizenship is questionable - and this provision needs to be mandated for ANY candidate for elective office in this country, not simply President. The bill was very poorly written, and those "baptismal" certificate and "circumcision" records ludicrous. Long form certified birth certificates stating parents names and place of birth should abe sufficient. And if there is a federal law, then it should not be the political party who provides it, but the candidate since political parties have their own self-interest also foremost.

So please tell me why Congressional Attorney Research Staffer would write a report to congress dated April 3, 2009 telling them that no candidate for any federal office is ever vetted by a federal office or anyone other than politcal party if President Obama had undergone a top level security check such as our CIA, FBI, Secret Service or top level military personnel? His candidacy was unvetted by any agency period! That is exactly why he has not shown his birth certificate.

"that the move seems to be in direct response to the repeatedly debunked controversy over President Barack Obama's citizenship and the right-wing conspiracy theorist "birther" movement."

Typical bullshit from assholes like what you see infesting this Phoenix Times POS. So tell me then, asshole, precisely WHERE has this been debunked? Debunked by something fresh off the inkjet printer? This creature in the White House currently going under the name Barak Hussein Obama has his entire history, not just his passport, carefully concealed - his school records, employment history (first job out of college was CIA), passports, medical records, everything (and likewise but to a lesser extent his disbarred lawyer wife). The Kenyan ambassador, the Kenyan Parliament, and all Soetoro alias Obama etc.'s relatives in kenya all say he was born in Africa, and in fact kenya has designated his birthplace a national historical site. And, by the way, how come Soetoro looks nothing at all like his alleged Luo tribe daddy - but he's the spitting image of Malcolm X!?

Debunked my ass.

Do these fucking dumbass politicians even have a 8th grade education? Why are we wasting our time on this fucking stupid ass shit? It no wonder people around the country think Arizonians are a bunch of dipshits.

It's nice to see that our clueless Senate president, Russell Pearce, and these other dimwitted politicians we the people voted for are already wasting our time and tax dollars on useless, do-nothing laws.

The U.S. Constitution already requires that the President and VP be at least 35 years old, a natural born citizen of the United States and a resident of a state for at least 7 years.

I wonder how much more the state will spend defending this useless law, just like it is going to do with Pearce's undoing of the 14th Amendment and is doing with SB 1070? I hear we have spent over a million bucks defending Pearce's do-nothing statute (SB 1070) in court.

What is going thru this brainless bunch of biggots. They were not sent to the Senate or the House to put into law their own personal ideas, but to do for Arizona what was best for our people. Lets get some figures out on the money that is being spend on outlandish law suits and our attorneys traveling to Washington to do Brewers and Piersons biddings. Our School, police and other important issues should be taking first and most important problems on the Senate and House. COME ON ELECTED OFFICIALS GET WITH THE PROGRAM AND STOP COMING UP WITH STUPIDIETY.

With the critical issues facing Arizona and bills that should be written but ignored, this "birther" bill is ludicrous and insane. Where did these legislators come from? Outer space? Truly disgusting waste of a legislative session with NO consideration for the people.

Arizona is doing a splendid job of branding itself as the capital of the Republic of Dumbfuckistan. And that's fine.

Let us know when you have drawn the rest of the country's inbred flat-earth racist assholes to your state - we will build the border wall on the other three sides and call it a day.

I must have missed the articles that explained what they've done about working on the state's economy and budget issues.

Anyone with a link?

I'm so glad that this state is represented by such a high caliber of people who will focus their efforts on meaningfully moving the state forward (gag). But then again, I guess those of you who voted for these brainless stooges got what you voted for -- thankfully, I can say that I didn't vote for any of these wastes of carbon.

You are a royal idiot. If Obama isn't citizen, then the millions of people born in Hawaii aren't citizens either. The country is tired of suffering fools like you, Beck and Limbaugh.

You dimwitted racist asshole, you wouldn't know reality if it bit you on the ass. The fact that moronic knuckle draggers like you sit in the Arizona legislature should be an extreme embarrasment to all Arizonans.

Correction:

"Not just his passport" should say "not just his birth certificate".

Yes, but that provision was made when the country was new, and also did not have the number of illegal Canadians and Mexicans living in Arizona or throughout the nation due to the removal of visa requirements, and moving around people today do moving to other states now just to run for office. It is needed, just was poorly written.

How many times have I heard that same glib bullshit about "oh that's been debunked many times before" when exposing more of their devils lies propagated in controlled media like this, namely the 911 hoax.

Where's the lying punk who wrote that article? Is he on here? Get your faggot ass out here and try to defend your devil's lies, punk! Tell me where Soetoro-Obama's birthplace and everything else about him was "debunked".

But of course he can't.
