Fw: Obama's voting block

They say Obama was elected by the college kids who voted for him in huge numbers. This may explain it all.........

>>>>> In an Alabama college classroom, the students and professor were discussing the qualifications to be President of the United States. It was pretty simple, actually; the candidate must be a natural born citizen of at least 35 years of age.
>>>>> However, one girl in the class immediately started in on how unfair was the requirement to be a natural born citizen. In short, her opinion was that this requirement prevented many capable individuals from becoming president.
>>>>> The class was taking it all in and letting her rant, but everyone's jaw hit the floor when she wrapped up her argument by stating, 'What makes a natural born citizen any more qualified to lead this country than one born by C-section?'
>>>>> Yep, these are the same 18 year olds that just elected the new President of the United States.

Yes, because that totally happened.

And I really love how they picked Alabama, one of the most Republican of all states. McCain won down there with over 60% of the vote, taking 54 of 67 counties.

Obama may have won the majority of the youth vote, but he didn't win them all, and I guarantee a young person from Alabama was much more likely to vote for McCain than a young person in almost any other state.

Of course, perhaps this (fictional) young lady is just a little to into the play Macbeth, which might explain her passion on the subject of natural birth versus c-section.

Well, duh: no $hit that some undereducated fool is from the great @ssbackwards state of Alabama.

I agree w/the first post: it's unlikely that the majority of college students in AL voted for Obama; they are too busy being racists to do that.

As for the overall dumbness of that alleged student: it says more about our public school system which has sytematically and deliberately been dumbed down thru lack of adequate support fostered by republicans. They wish to send their kids to private schools so that they don't have to mingle w/minorities and other undesirables.

The corporations wish for the public school system to be mediocre or less so that citizens are too stupid, dull-witted and incurious to question how we're all being screwed over by them.

And so on. Frankly, I'm surprised that this is a right wing forward, as I would have assumed that the rightards would WANT students to be this uneducated & stupid. The level of this (sadly perhaps not so fictional) student's intelligence is pretty matched by most of the teabagging fools that are parading around making horses @sses of themselves.

I've seen this before (without the "these are Obama's supporters" bit), but the students in the story were much younger (which IMO makes the joke funnier in a "Kids Say the Darndest Things" way). When I searched I found this:
which seems to be the most "detailed" of the stories and takes place in an AP (high school) class, and is still too old to be really funny. The closest I could find to this "charming" version was one involving a "Southern Blonde." One the one hand, it is expected that these sorts of e-mails will re-purpose old jokes (often making them less funny in the process), but on the other, this joke circulated (non-partisan) during the election. Shouldn't they wait until a joke is old and mostly forgotten before they do this? I guess credibility is even less an issue for them than you would expect.
