Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Poll Taxes

One of the under-reported stories of 2010-12 is the systemic and systematic efforts by the GOP to disenfranchise hundreds of thousands if not millions of voters from groups that traditionally lean Democratic.

The DOJ has been taking some of these states to court.

Today, the Pennsylvania AG admits that there has been no evidence of in person voter fraud of the type these laws are trying to prohibit.

But it's important to remember that Obama playing a tape of Romney's tuneless singing of America the Beautiful is too hardball.
