    Actually the majority of tea partiers barely pay any attention to Glen Beck. I am a big tea party supporter. And while I think Beck has a great radio voice...I think he's a bit of a conspiracy nut. I am more of a Rush Limbaugh fan.

    The very public comments of Mike Turzai can fairly be seen as saying otherwise.

    No, they say exactly what I just said. Since at least he perceives voter fraud benefiting democrats, it's very safe to assume that combating it helps the GOP.

    Yeah, there's racism. And there was racism during the Jim Crow era, too, when most black households were led by two parents who were married to each other and before the Civil Rights Act and Johnson's Great Society and War on Poverty programs. I mean, which is the bigger problem for blacks today? Racism or the fact that more than two-thirds of black babies are born out of wedlock?

    Now all he has to do is prove it.

    Which he never did.

    So his perceptions are not worth the utilitarian value of a common five pound bag of garden manure.

    That may very well be true, but doesn't change the motivation for his comment.

    Why do you believe the hype? Is it because you and Turzai prostrate yourself before the same altar and have drunk the same Kool-aid and swallow the same party line?

    Because all you seem to have is the standard belief of the rabidly partisan right without any proof. And without that Turzai is simply a rabid partisan trying to manipulate an election with a new voter ID law or his own party and said so.

    and I didn't say I agree with him. But there is a difference between agreeing with him and assigning some nefarious motive to his comment. Were it not for your koolaid, which you clearly drink regularly, you'd be a bit more objective yourself.
