“It is useless to attempt to reason a man out of a thing he was never reasoned into”

It's too hot to handle so I gotta get up and go

It's a cruel ... cruel summer"

Mighty Oaks, etc.

I just accomplished a feat for the first time - (Oops, wrong word - struggled, suffered, labored would be more appropriate) I made it through a Michelle Malkin editorial in the Amarillo Globe Republican about the "rampant Corruption among ACORNs". Okay maybe not every word, but at least scanned.

The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) has been registering lower income and minority voters for a long time by hiring (often low income or out of work) people to find and register these folks. They are paid by the hour, not by the registration. Malkin, using four anecdotal examples with, as usual, no data accuses ACORN of registering unqualified voters supportive of Barack.

The implication is that thousands upon thousands of ineligible voters will show up at the polls to distort the vote. Michelle needs to work as an election judge or be an observer in a county clerk's office. The judge or county clerk will catch multiple names or "Mickey Mouse" and toss them out. And anyone one showing up at the polls risks being charged with a felony.

Josh Marshall of Talking Points Memo (TPM) reported "The Justice Department devoted unprecedented resources to ferreting out fraud over five years and appears to have found not a single prosecutable case across the country."

The Repubs are starting to get desperate to find the reason President-Elect Obama beat McCain't. Give it up Michelle!
