The Demolition Man Amendment

Seattle Times:

Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, an Orange County, Calif., Republican and longtime friend of Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, introduced a constitutional amendment yesterday to allow foreign-born Americans who have been citizens for 20 years to run for president. Schwarzenegger, who became a citizen in 1983, conveniently makes that cutoff. Now there are proposals by Republicans in both the GOP-controlled U.S. House and Senate, which could make the phrase "President Schwarzenegger" more of a possibility, if still a long shot.
(via Crosblog) My only concern here, is the thought that the Demolition Man scenario might prove to be reality hurts the mind a bit. Kidding aside, I like Schwarzenegger's politics a lot. I probably agree with him on more issues than any other prominent political figure. Plus, he used to be Conan, how cool is that!

In Demolition Man Schwarzenegger is president because of an ammendment that had been passed allowing him to run.

When the movie came out it was a joke and a very unlikely scenario.

Dave actually had to mention that a couple of times before I sat down and watched "Demolition Man" again.

I laughed my butt off when I heard Sandra Bullock's character explaining all of that in her oh so cheerful voice.
