Into The Ludicrous Zone. Foreign Born Citizens Cannot Be President! (Never use)

In the movie "Spaceballs" there is a delightful sequence of silliness in which "Dark Helmet" orders and achieves "Ludicrous Speed" and goes so fast that he "Goes to Plaid" (obscure joke) and has to employ "Emergency Stop" which is labeled "Never Use." It is argued that "we can't stop because we're going too fast, it's too dangerous" when "Dark Helmet" insists the ship must stop now.

Watch the clip.

Are we saying the election has now "gone too far" or is "going too fast" and using "Emergency Citizenship Disqualification" is too dangerous? Is the ban on foreign citizens becoming President of the United States the disqualifier we should "Never Use?"

My Way News (AP) - Philadelphia - "(U.S. District Judge R. Barclay) Surrick ruled that (Philip J.) Berg lacked standing to bring the case, saying any harm from an allegedly ineligible candidate was 'too vague and its effects too attenuated to confer standing on any and all voters.' "

Okay, I haven't been banking on disqualifying Barack as a US Citizen to hand the Presidency to John McCain, but it might hand it to Hillary if Barack wins the election. We do have an Electoral College and they could easily be lobbied as free agent Democrat bound electors to go for ANY Democrat. What's interesting here is that we're saying no citizen is important enough to question a candidate's qualification for office. I would suspect that ANY of us should be able to do this.

The judges ruling also says "silly man, you're vote doesn't count, who cares about YOU? The Presidency when it's effects are boiled down to you is so small an issue that we can't be concerned about you." Wow. If that's not elitism?

This is done too for the weakest of reasons and with the same judicial manipulation that has occurred all too frequently in the Texas YFZ case. Back the plaintiff or defendant up to a deadline as far as you can and rule late on a Friday afternoon? Why? Limit their ability to appeal.

This is way too complicated, my brains are going into my feet.
