More on voter ID

Expanding a little on Fixer's post, here's what the DNC has to say about the Repug-biased SCOTUS decision on voter ID:

After the ruling, Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean and DNC Voting Rights Institute Chair Donna Brazile issued the following statement:

"Today's decision by the Supreme Court is deeply disappointing and not justified by the facts. It is an affront to our nation's ideal that all people, regardless of their background or beliefs, have the right to vote and have that vote counted. This case has never been about securing the right to vote. Instead, it has confirmed the lengths Republicans will go to in their attempts to limit voting rights in order to win elections. This decision runs counter to the principles on which our great nation was founded, and we will not let them get away with it.

Good luck. They've gotten away with nearly everything they've tried.

SCOTUS has come up with an unconstitutional blatantly partisan ruling about a non-existent problem made up by the Repugs to try and limit other-than-Repug access to the polls. Bolstering this administration's suppressive policies is what SCOTUS gets paid to do these days. To quote the first of the justices who should be hung from the yardarm, "Get over it".

We'll try. 11.4.08 and 1.20.09.
