    Great News – We’ve Already Stolen The 2012 Election

    Great News – We’ve Already Stolen The 2012 Election

    So says E.J. Dionne in The Washington Post, arguing that voter i.d. laws and limitations on early voting will suppress the Democratic Party vote and disenfranchise minorities:

    An attack on the right to vote is underway across the country through laws designed to make it more difficult to cast a ballot. If this were happening in an emerging democracy, we’d condemn it as election-rigging. But it’s happening here, so there’s barely a whimper.

    Is there any successful Republican election which was not stolen?  George Bush stole 2000 and 2004.   McCain was too honest to steal 2008; we’ll never make the mistake of having an honest candidate again, now will we?

    Had I known that we already stole 2012, I might have stayed at Blogger and taken some time off.

    It’s such a dirty shame that they now make people have the same photo ID requirement that they must have for Food Stamps in order to vote.
    America must be going hungry with out their E.J. Dionne mustard.

    Whether or not these laws can be rolled back, their existence should unleash a great civic campaign akin to the voter-registration drives of the civil rights years. The poor, the young and people of color should get their IDs, flock to the polls and insist on their right to vote in 2012.

    WHAT!?!? You mean to say people — aside from dead people that is — can still vote, in fact they can even flock to the polls, under our new Jim Crow laws? Yeesh, the racists better plug that loophole if’n they want quality Nu Jim Crow laws.

    I dunno, a “get an ID ya lazy bum” drive doesn’t sound quite as noble as a voter-registration drives. Besides, once you’ve bribed them with cigarettes to get an ID, how can you be sure they’ll vote without shaking you down for another pack of Marlboroughs.

    Here in Ohio, we’re going one better…there’s a bill in the works to end ‘I don’t know where I’m supposed to vote, so let me vote here instead’ nonsense.

    The second great enabler of voter fraud.

    But I don’t feel like a thief. 🙂

    […] Meanwhile, Bob Belvedere and Smitty fisk E.J. Dionne for his ridiculous theory that voter ID laws are racist and biased against Democrats. Prof. Jacobson joins the fun. […]
