Studies in Liberal Media Bias

In this one we have Rachel MadCow committing, as is usual for her, journalistic fraud regarding the Texas Voter ID law which, of course, according to MadCow and her liberal cohorts, is nothing short of suppressing Democrat voting since, apparently, Democrats are unusually stupid when it comes to acquiring a free means of identification.

OK, she and the NSDWP may have a point here. Anybody willing to vote for a Democrat has to be dumb enough to qualify for permanent mental disability payments, but we digress.

Occasionally Republicans tip their hand on this, as they have done in Texas, when Texas Republicans were cranking down voting rights, making it harder to vote in that state than it has ever been before, Texas Republicans carved out an exception to their new you-have-to-show-an-ID-to-vote-now rule. The exception is? (pause for dramatic effect) For anybody who has a concealed carry permit for a weapon.

What do you think it is about having a gun that makes the Republican legislators of Texas relax about your eligibility to vote?

It could be, we hasten to point out, that the CHL is already a valid means of ID in just about every other respect in the great Republic of Texas.

Somehow, showing an already accepted valid form of proof of ID is an “exception” to a requirement to show an accepted valid form of ID.

You’d have to be a braindead liberal (but we repeat ourself) to make sense of that.

Also helpfully left out of Rachel MadCow’s “expose” were the other forms of acceptable “exceptions” to the requirement for valid ID, namely a driver’s license, a military ID, a passport or, to top it off, an utterly free and readily available (if you can muster the intellectual fortitude to apply for it, free of charge) voter ID card.

But, according to liberals, their core constituencies are too dumb for that.

And they may just be right.

Thatisall.

Well, shit, it’s obvious enough. :em05:

Man, remember when you had to be white to vote and ballots weren’t secret? That was way easy.

Democrats are unusually stupid when it comes to acquiring a free means of identification.

Now in all fairness, the state ID card is not free. If you are under 60, it costs you $16 and $6 for over 60. Sure, it has no expiration date but they won’t let that get in the way of a good bit of hysterics.

A card gotten with fingerprints ain’t so easy to skink.
There’s a lot for stinkin’ skinkers to fear.
Register moonbats, not guns.
BTW,, While we were sorting out some other stuff last week, Wayne tore into the UN skinkers on our behalf,, MY money at work.

Maybe those wannabe dhimmo voters are a little hinky about having their pichures took and giving up their fingerprints because so many of them already have photos and prints on file at the locol po-po stations?

I really feel like positing “Make baby Jesus smile…shoot a liberal in the face…”

But I wont.

The next election is over a year away. How difficult would it be to get a proper ID given that lead time? Although hilljohnny and 0007 certainly have points.

What those dumbasses don’t realize is that the CHL is TIED to your Texas driver’s license. My Texas CHL has a license number AND my driver’s license/ID number. So in effect, it is actually TWO identification methods in one!

In Oklahoma, “you may submit your voter registration application form at any time. However, voter identification cards cannot be issued during the 24 days prior to an election. If your registration application is received by the county election board during the 24 days before an election, you will not receive your voter identification card until after the election.” Also, “you… Read more »

Hey, the Dems have been admitting since 2000 that they’re the Party of Stupid. Remember all that stuff about anyone who couldn’t figure out the ballot obviously wanted to vote for Gore?
