Dodged a bullet there!

Today's Wall Street Journal The Editorial Page email has an item on a story in the New York Times about a brewing "crisis" over John McCain's impending nomination as the Republican candidate for president. Not content with trying to smear McCain with a non-sex sex story, the Old Gray Lady is now trying to question his eligibility to become president. John McCain was born in the Panama Canal Zone and the Times claims that the internet is abuzz with talk of this "controversy". (Never mind that Congress passed a law to address just this question in 1790.)

What I'm grateful for is that it looks like Hillary won't be the Democratic nominee. Since I put nothing past her, and believe that no tactic is beneath her, I have no trouble envisioning her challenging McCain's eligibility on the grounds that he is not a natural born citizen.

Collectively, we, the United States of America, are getting ready to dodge a HUGE bullet here, folks!
