Remember the Alamo, eh?

I always thought it'd be the Democrats who tried to run a Canadian for President of the United States, but it turns out that Republican Tea Party favorite Ted Cruz, the Senator from Texas, is an honest-to-god Canadian citizen having been born in Calgary on Dec. 22, 1970. And for all the "birther" nonsense over the last six years about President Obama, this is just too rich for words. But I'll try anyway. Cruz was born of an American mother and a, gasp, Cuban, let me say that again, Cuban, father in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. This has got to put Donald Trump and his crack team of detectives in a bind. And Orly Taitz, the American "birther" queen, has to be having nightmares now. It's too easy to make jokes: In a unanimous vote, Canada accepts the resignation of US Senator Ted Cruz as a Canadian citizen. The Toronto News reports the vote was 35,000,000 to 0. Or: Texas Senator Ted Cruz, Tea Party zealot and Republican Presidential wannabee, formally renounced his Canadian citizenship today, and promised to start a war with Canada if elected President. "This should satisfy my Tea Party supporters," he said. "I'll bomb those mother-f****** into the stone age. Guaranteed health care for everyone, my ass." Senator Cruz said the other day, after releasing his birth certificate, he'd renounce his Canadian citizenship and Canada breathed a sigh of relief. Democrats may launch a petition to have him renounce his US citizenship instead. So anyway, here are the lyrics to the national anthem of Ted Cruz' country of birth. And remember what Ted Cruz like to say: Remember the Alamo, eh. O CANADA O Canada! Our home and native land True patriot love in all thy sons command. With glowing hearts we see thee rise The true north, strong and free From far and wide, O Canada We stand on guard for thee. God keep our land glorious and free O Canada! We stand on guard for thee O Canada! We stand on guard for thee.
