    DNC Chair: GOP wants to "Drag Us Back To Jim Crow Laws"

    Wow.

    This was the same lady who accused Republicans of wanting to criminalize illegal immigration, and who accused Republicans of driving foriegn cars (when she herself did as well).

    Dear DNC. Please keep this woman in charge of your organization. Because she is making you look amazingly stupid.

    An overstatement, perhaps...but it's essentially true that Republicans want to make it harder for poor people and students to vote - ESPECIALLY in Florida.

    People who don't have skin in the game shouldn't be allowed to vote.

    High voter turnouts are usually bad for GOPers particularly as their "core" group shrinks in comparison to other segments of the population who tend to vote Democratic.

    For some reason, Republicans are actively hostile to minorities. They seem to go out of their way to isolate many sub-groups of voters. So their response to the growing political power of these groups that they've worked so hard to piss off? Discourage them from voting.

    Historical analogies are fantastic. 1938 defined political rhetoric for a long time (as did just Hitler and the Final Solution), and Jim Crow defines political rhetoric for a long time too.

    It's awesome to watch them being used in an exaggerated fashion over and over again.

    The Dems are working their asses off to create more poor people.

    Wasserman-Schultz is the epitome of all that is wrong with American politics, and especially the cancer that is American liberalism, which has devolved to nothing more than suckling the government teat. And in another stroke of head-up-their-asses brilliance, Dems made here the Chair.

    She's a friggin joke. Just as Liberalism in the US has become a joke. A really bad joke. An incredibly costly joke.

    Fact is it is way to easy for people to register and vote illegally and often.
