The State Objections Board officially has ended a resident’s challenge to whether President Obama is a “natural-born citizen.” But by not dismissing the challenge immediately and by asking for more documents concerning Obama’s citizenship, the board – composed of Secretary of State Kris Kobach, Attorney General Derek Schmidt and Lt. Gov. Jeff Colyer – made Kansas the butt of jokes. Among some of the tweets:
“What the matter with Kansas? They’re nuts.” – Nixon White House counsel John Dean
“Kansas Republican establishment goes full birther.” – Daily Kos founder Markos Moulitsas
“To avoid election fraud, maybe we should require Kansas to prove U.S. citizenship before it counts in Electoral College?” – New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof
“Kansas also seems stuck in 19th century. It should document that it is in 21st century to participate in 2012 election.” – Kristof again
