I've heard them all--almost
The very partisan and extremely political Attorney General, J.B. Van Hollen, was on Joy Cardin's Wisconsin Public Radio program yesterday trying his best to explain his lawsuit against the state's Government Accountability Board. A caller asked, "As co-chair of the McCain campaign in Wisconsin, how can you avoid conflicts in this suit?" Answer, and I'm not making this up, "Because my suit is non-partisan." (He forgot to say that thousands if minorities and elderly will effectively lose their right to vote.)
The non-partisan League of Women Voters said the suit, if successful, would disenfranchise thousands of Wisconsinites. If you are challenged because you moved recently, you can fill out a ballot but you would have to go to the clerk's office the next day to prove you are eligible. C'mon folks. Stop the nonsense.
In Michigan the McCain folks are trying to disenfranchise voters, mostly African-Americans, who have been ousted from their homes through foreclosure. Can you believe it? They collect the names and addresses, send a letter to the address, no forwarding, and it the letter is returned and they challenge their right to vote. Send 'em to Gitmo!
Too big to fail? Hey! Congratulations! You own AIG. Should we move in? Have a party?
