Can We Finally Put This To Rest

After months of protest and something called the “birther” movement, someone has finally figured out Barack Obama’s heritage.  Seventh grader BridgeAnne d’Avignon from Watsonville, California has deciphered with her grandfather that Obama is related to every single United States president except for Martin Van Buren.  d’Avignon found out that every single US President, except for Van Buren, is related to John “Lackland” Plantagenet, former King of England and one of the signers of the Magna Carta.  It’s gonna be hard to argue Obama’s legitimacy knowing he’s related to every other US President except for one, but I’m sure they’ll find a way.

    Which means not one president was like you or me. The fantasy that anyone can grow up to be president is exploded by this claim. Other than one freak event, the requirement to become president is to be related to English royalty. So, let’s stop telling our children that anyone can grow up to be president. It’s a lie!
