In response to Senator Mitch Mconnell's proposal to require ID for voting in federal elections, Senator Teddy Kennedy revealed perhaps too much:
[Kennedy] likened the proposal to a poll tax or a requirement for voters to pass a literacy test. "Now is not the time and this is not the place to consider an amendment that may disenfranchise a million or more poor, minority, disabled, and elderly voters -- all of them American citizens," he said. (via KentuckyDan)Kennedy left out one key voting group, the deceased. Of course he rejects this idea. But in November, you'll hear Democrats scream election fraud with the rest of the party supporters.
Don Surber has a good post on the end of West Virginia's dead voters:
Although no one is saying it outright, the euphemism "mostly in Southern West Virginia" tells me these were mainly dead Democrats.
The New York Times ain't gonna like that. On Wednesday it editorialized: "it is clearly the Republicans who believe they have an interest in keeping the voter base small."
