The vote-fraud myth in an ACORN shell

A primer on the "right-wing hype and lies".

That link doesn't work.

That's because the Republicans are suppressing it!!

PS: Salon explains how crying vote fraud is actually an attempt to suppress legit votes.

This might matter if Obama weren't up by 8 points or whatever it is. It may be candy for the Republican base, but McCain isn't going to win by playing to the base. And having cover for a possible post-election legal battle will only really help in case of a toss-up. Not too likely at this point, at least not in any state that matters.

Yeah sure, healthy democracy yadda yadda yadda. Having a competent or exceptional black president will more than make up for all this.

Republicans and the right-wing media machine are under threat of extinction if Obama becomes a President for "all America." In anticipation of defeat, they are stirring up the hate early in order to keep their audiences outraged and tuning in for 4 years of opposition.

If you listen to Limbaugh and O'Reilly, then blacks, Barney Frank and Chris Dodd bear all the responsiibility for the mortgage mess, the death of Reaganomics and the end of the era of white male dominance. They probably got Rush and Cindy McCain addicted to pills too. Don't believe me? Hear it from the ignorant-as-a-horse's mouth:


Richard H, I will not sit idly by while you make a comparison that slanders horses' mouths.

I was disappointed Obama didn't make the key distinction between voter registration fraud and vote fraud in his Acorn rebuttal tonight. But I guess it's easier to craft the perfect nail-everything-down response from an armchair at home.

The Republican party is grasping on to the ACORN story as a way to delegitimize what now looks like the probable outcome of the November election.

Bullshit. They're using it to raise money. Full stop.

I can only assume you think this is no big deal either.
