Terminated

Some people believe the US Constitution is divinely inspired.

I wouldn't go that far, but at least one clause from Article II Section 1 ("No person except a natural born citizen...") sure looks prophetic right now.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    And for that matter, dear Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm, who was born in Canada.

    I might entertain changing this clause in the Constitution - AFTER Schwarzenegger has passed to that "undiscovered country" from which there is no return.

    Governor Schwarznegger fit well into the California mileu. It would be a tragic loss to the orange growers and almond farmers if he were to ever leave. He makes an excellent case for an absolutely strict interpreation and maintenance of the US Constitution. In any case, I would hate to see Danny DiVito as Secretary of State.
