For John, BLUF: Some people think winning is more important than preserving the game itself. Nothing to see here; just move along.
I have been told, by people I trust more than I trust Ms Donna Brazile, that voter fraud is a myth and bringing it up is just a "dog whistle" for Republicans. Here is a short article on non-citizens voting. The source is the Blog Public Secrets, but they do link to this Wash Post "Monkey Cage" item from yesterday.
"Democracy is the art of running the circus from the monkey cage."Then there is this sympathetic item from MSNBC about a 62 year old woman who doesn't get it that your driver's license should be for the same state as where you claim residency. At any rate, she claims she was so upset by a Texas State Trooper explaining to her that she could go to jail for driving without a valid license that she left without getting her Texas ID so she can vote.-- H.L. Mencken
My question is, why is she still driving around with a California Driver's License a year after making Texas her place of residence? On the other hand, maybe in our Commonwealth of Massachusetts there is no requirement for new Residents to have a Mass Driver's License to drive around. And, with our A/G ("It isn't illegal to be illegal"), maybe you don't even need a Driver's License, unless of course you are from the oppressor class.♠
And, because Halloween is approaching, here is a scary item on a member of the Federal Elections Commission wanting to further regulate the internet, including possibly blogs. To add to the fear factor, it is The Washington Examiner.
Hat tip to the Instapundit.
