Are we better than South Carolina?
The U.S. Justice Department--yes, I know, where, you ask, oh where, has Eric Holder been hiding?
But he came out of hiding and the Department of Justice rejected South Carolina's new law requiring photo identification at the polls. Why? You know why: it discriminates against minority voters. Just like ours does.
Wisconsin's law should die the same death, but it won't. If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck...C'mon, Holder, you will love it in Wisconsin. Stop this travesty!
Say a prayer, cross your fingers, whatever works for you. Assembly Representative Tamara Grigsby, a rising star in Wisconsin politics, is near death in Milwaukee. She is a wonderful example of the type of idealist we should be recruiting to seek office.
PolitiFact is annoying but we probably pay too much attention to their rants. Take this example to show why it is about as fair and balanced as....
Michelle Obama said the president deserves credit for the Post-9/11 GI Bill. PolitiFact points out that while he supported the bill in the Senate while Bush opposed it, and getting anything through Congress is damned-near miraculous, Bush ended up signing the Bill into law.
Aha! says PolitiFox: "Michele made it sound like the bill was a major legislative priority." PolitiFox knows better! And they crow Bush signed it into law. Therefore??? Why not investigate what "sounds like" means in this instance.
