Ms. Brown, a Repblican member of the Missouri House of Representatives, told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, that the legislation that the Missouri House passed last week does not "speak of racisim." Accordingly, Ms. Brown is, "tired of being called racist." What is the legislation you ask? A "birther bill" requiring presidential candidates to provide a birth certificate in order to be placed on the Missouri presidential ballot. The Post-Dispatch notes, that "If approved, Missouri could become the first state to require such documents. It would go into effect in time for the 2016 election." Given that the governor of Missouri is Jay Nixon, a Democrat, I am not sure what set of circumstances would allow the bill to become law.
As Groucho Marx might have said but did not, “I know Missouri is the Show-Me State, but this is ridiculous.”
