I voted for Ronald Reagan in 84. I am so sorry, all I can say in my defense is that I was young and had never voted. I tried to make up for it by working on both of Bill Clintons campaigns. Afterwards I became a Democratic socialist. If a pro corporate, Rockefeller Republican, like Bill Clinton is viewed as a left wing commie then the country has gone too far right insane.

Conservatives: obsessed with punishing gay sex because they so deeply desire gay sex. Obsessed with Democratic voter fraud because they constantly commit voter fraud.

Yet Wendy Davis gets torn apart for claiming that she was divorced at age 19 (because her divorce was finalized when she was 20, so she was TECHNICALLY only "separated" at 19).

Relatively Obscure: The important thing is that he believes he voted for Reagan.  Whether he actually voted doesn't seem particularly relevant.


You've just described the average person in the Tea Party.

As accurate as Paul Ryan's marathon times? I bet a Voter Id law would have been real useful for this as well.

I voted Reagan, and I don't feel all that smart about it :)

Walker is white.  By definition, it's impossible for him to commit voter fraud.

BunkoSquad: Nabb1: I think we did one in 1984 when I was in middle school, too. I voted for Reagan, as I recall. My poor mom even had me poking fun at her for voting for Mondale.

Yeah, we did that too. I voted for Mondale because I snuck over to a friend's house to watch "The Day After" and was pretty sure that Reagan wanted to start a nuclear war. There are still days I'm surprised he didn't.


Fairly similar experience here.  We did have a mock election that year, I was in 4th grade maybe.  I did vote for Mondale, if for no other reason than even way back in those halcyon days of grade school; Republicans were assholes.

More likely it is just more lies from Scott Walker.

Finally!  Conservatives finally have found not only one, but two instances of voter fraud which would have been prevented by requiring voter ID.  Congratulations!

Of course, she isn't one of the Team and any lying on her part is indicative of a flawed personality whereas Walker merely misspoke. He was distracted by the demands of higher office so you gotta take it easy on him.
