You Probably Want Some Food, Too

Sometimes there are flashes of decency over at the National Review. Rarely, but it happens. This is not one of those times:

Try as I might, I cannot really understand how even a minimum standard of voting security can be maintained when, as an Ohio judge did yesterday, you decide to let the homeless vote. If there is no address — how do you check whether someone has voted before or whether they are using a real name? I get that the judge is attempting to enable fraud on behalf of his campaign — but how does this pass even a minimum test of reasonableness?

Obviously. Jesus Himself would haul the homeless into Court and get a permanent injunction against their right to vote. You see, He was a hardass about stuff like that.



You forget that the right wing doesn’t recognize the basic humanity of anyone making less than $50,000 a year. The homeless are lucky Rush Limbaugh and Bill O’Reilly aren’t rounding them up as barbecue meat.

But, the homeless! Voter fraud! Bad people! They might vote for That One!

Yeah. Also: per the National Review, anybody who has ever supported Palestine, like, ever, is an anti-Semite. And Barry loves his anti-Semites, of course, per the latest loonery (repeated by Tailbunny today, natch) regarding the L.A. Times suppressing a story that they fucking broke about a U of C professor who also has connections to the Geezer. (No, not Posner. Khalidi. Name just sounds scary, don’t it?) God damn it. You can barely keep up with this shit.


@chicago bureau:

Khalidi is a run-of-the-mill, U.S. America-born, Arab Studies professor at Columbia. He had some dealings with a Palestinian press agency and was sometimes consulted as an expert on Palestinian issues, according to the always-precise Wikipedia.

The wingnuttospere is touting him as the mouthpiece of the PLO.

They are barely credible anymore – from K-Lo’s damp bleatings about the real Mitt Romney to Jonah Goldberg’s claim that liberals are the real fascists, NRO Online is, as Sadly, No! points out, the world’s shittiest website.

And don’t forget Dinesh D’Souza – an atavistic little shitbag of the first order.

Riiiight. So, why not just leave them to freeze on their flattened refrigerator boxes, rather than come up with a way to allow them to be registered and to vote safely, accurately and legally?

I am so effing tired of these conservative nutcases who just say stupid contrary shit for the sake of feeling important. I’ll see them all in hell.

At this point, is anyone going to be in heaven? They should shut that place down.


Cloris Leachman and Carol Burnett are going to heaven. God loves funny women.

@Tommmcatt Yet Again: Awwww. Gilda Radner’s there too, possibly knitting something and crackin’ wise. Now I want to go to heaven!

Yeah, fuck those homeless people. Who do they think they are, voting without an address? What have they ever contributed to this country and why would they care about elections?

Jesus had a home? Was it in an all-white, gated community? I guess I need to read up on the New Testament.

They’d crucify jesus today just as they did back then, for preaching the humanity of the destitute.

@Promnight: Yep. Like Woodie Guthrie said. Do these fuckers actually read his sermons (jesus, not Woodie). I may be a big cheap Jew bastard who did not go to church (nor temple, for that matter), but I really don’t see anything in there about hating the poor, the gays, non-Amuricans, etc.
