President of Canada

Ted Cruz is not my favorite Presidential Candidate, and he has occasionally attracted some birther criticism because he was (a)born in Canada to a (b) Canadian father. This shouldn't matter, since his mother was supposedly an American citizen. (But try telling that to the "Obama born in Kenya" birthers.)

Now for something odd: it seems that Cruz's mother was on the voting rolls of Calgara, Alberta (Ted's birthplace) as a Canadian citizen. Curiouser and Curiouser. If so, it's hardly even clear that Cruz is an American citizen of any kind, let alone a "natural born citizen. If it turns out that he isn't, it isn't even clear where we can deport him to given that he has renounced his Canadian citizenship. Cuba, maybe?
