Is McCain a "Natural Born Citizen" under Art. II?

Let's assume McCain were to be nominated and elected president and
approved by Congress. Who would have standing to challenge the act of
Congress and the Electors?
Even if someone had standing, but for Bush v. Gore I would have
expected the court to dismiss this sort of question as one to be
governed by the political branches -- especially under the 12th and
Does anyone seriously think (a) that Congress would not accept the
vote of the electors? or (b) that SCOTUS would under any circumstances
decide against the people and Congress, even after Bush v. Gore?
But it is sort of fun to play with. And it has been on the fringe
blogosphere for some time -- maybe some more mainstream ones to -- I
don't follow any of it closely.
