People forget that not only is Obama's birth certificate being questioned, but if I'm not mistaken so is John McCain's.

The validity of President-Elect Barack Obama's birth certificate continues to stir controversy in the days leading up to the Presidential Inauguration. According to the Los Angeles Times, Justice Clarence Thomas distributed legal papers regarding the Donofrio v. Wells lawsuit.

This lawsuit challenges the assertion that Barack Obama is a "natural born citizen" as defined in the Constitution. The original lawsuit sought not only to remove Obama as an eligible candidate, but also Senator John McCain, who was born in the Panama Canal Zone while it was a U.S. possession.

Let's pretend McCain's is up for review just for the heck of it even if he's not. So with that in mind, what happens if the Roberts Court actually takes the case and rules on it. Let's have some fun.

* If Obama loses, does that mean John McCain is the next president?

* McCain loses and is kicked out of the Senate.

* Both are invalidated.

If that were to happen:

* Would both parties be given a week to select a new candidate to run and then America would have to put on another general election before January 20th?

* Or would the two runner ups in the primaries, Hillary Clinton and Mike Huckabee duke it out in a quickie general election held before January 20th?

If you expect the wingnuts to just disappear, you would be mistaken.
