What the hell is this? Civil War Two? The civil rights fights of the 1960’s?
Hundreds of thousands of anti-Obama robo calls (maybe millions) are fomenting unfounded fears across the country. Yet they have produced scant evidence thus far to support their claim that Acorn has committed wholesale voter registration fraud across the nation.
If Republicans are so afraid of “the wrong people voting” why doesn’t the GOP mount a similar voter registration drive in friendly precincts? Wouldn’t the higher voter turnout be a net gain for America?
Instead, their lawyers file lawsuits to suppress voting. While the robo calls roll on.
Sarah Palin and John McCain are running a two-faced dirty campaign. In public, they piously point to McCain taking the microphone from the misguided Minnesota woman (kudos). But then they sign the checks for more robo calls.
Now comes GOP Congresswoman Michele Bachman’s charge that the media needs to expose “un-American” members of Congress. Just Google McCarthyism and HUAC witch hunts. A Republican gestalt left open all these years?
It only takes one nut, one bullet and a gun.
