Senator declares Snopes to be last word on Obama citizenship issue

Senator Jon Kyl, (RINO) Az., is the man in question. Apparently he believes Snopes is the final authority when it comes to "internet rumors" concerning this and other matters of national import. All Hail Snopes!:

From WND's article:

Sen. Jon Kyl, R-Ariz., has referred constituents raising concerns over President Obama's eligibility to occupy the Oval Office to an online "fact" organization that relies for its answer partly on information from the Obama campaign.

The response from Kyl to an Arizona constituent was revealed just one day after a Florida WND reader alerted WND to the fact Sen. Mel Martinez, R-Fla., had told him that Obama's eligibility was affirmed by voters who supported him in the Democratic primary and general elections in 2008.

The response from Kyl to a voter who asked about Obama's ability to meet the constitutional requirements for president said:

Thank you for your recent e-mail. Senator Obama meets the constitutional requirements for presidential office. Rumors pertaining to his citizenship status have been circulating on the Internet, and this information has been debunked by, which investigates the truth behind Internet rumors.

See what I mean when I say that the U.S. Senate, as it currently exists, is a filibuster-proof Senate? It doesn't matter what the specific piece of legislation or issue is, Obama and the (openly) socialist-democrats will be able, in any case, to peel off enough "republicans" to get their measures through.

By the way, we need this designation (RINO) placed beside the names of all elected Republicans who are, rather than the usual (D)/(R) that we're accustomed to getting. Shame on any and all who refuse to use this alternate designation.
