Arizona's Secretary of State is claiming that he might just decide to exclude President Obama's name from the election ballot in Arizona this fall, on account of how he might have been born in a foreign country.
So, you know, typical normal regular day in Arizona…
[Ken] Bennett, the state’s No. 2 elected official just below Gov. Jan Brewer (R), said his investigation isn’t personal. He said the reason he started looking into it is because he got more than 1,200 emails asking him to do so after [Sheriff Joe] Arpaio’s investigation came out.
"I'm not a birther. I believe the president was born in Hawaii — or at least I hope he was," Bennett said on the show. "But my responsibility as secretary of state is to make sure the ballots in Arizona are correct and that those people whose names are on the ballot have met the qualifications for the office they are seeking."
I totally one-hundred percent agree! We have to be absolutely certain that these people are who they say they are! And you know what? The good people of Hawaii agree as well…
Hawaii officials have forced [Bennett] to provide proof that he is who he says he is. They asked him to send them copies of the Arizona laws that prove the secretary of state really is the person in charge of handling the ballots. Admittedly, Bennett said they told him they were "tired of all the requests." But he is continuing anyway.
But now we have to ask ourselves: Are the "Hawaii officials" really officials in Hawaii? How do we know they're in the state? And what exactly is it that makes these people so official. Dictionary.com says that an official is "a person appointed or elected to an office or charged with certain duties." But how do I know that I can trust that definition? Who are these people who wrote it? And what exactly is a "dictionary." I'd look up the definition, but where?! Where?!?!
I can totally see the awful spot all this puts Ken Bennett in.
