I've said it before- the reason so many GOP can imagine that there is rampant voter fraud is because they are all totally dishonest, and assume everyone else is too.

I was one of 10 or so people waiting at my polling my place at 6:45 this morning. This is a solidly upper middle class/upper class, very white, very Republican neighborhood. An old white trash redneck in a orange camo hat went up to the poll worker at the door and said he was with True the Vote and he was there to ensure there was nobody voting fraudulently. The nice old lady told him this is a very small precinct and very little potential for fraud. He left.

At first I was a little puzzled. Then it dawned on my that this very white, very Republican neighborhood has a name that is very similar to a very poor, very black neighborhood. He had gotten bad information about where could go to harass "undesirables." Dumbass.

And their purpose in being there is to challenge every ballot they think is going for Obama.

They genuinely believe that "the other side" is so bad, so corrupt, so evil, so rotten, that any action is justified that prevents "the other side" from being in power.

This has been true since at last Jan. 2000. The right was really very clear back then: "We won, you lost, now shut up and go home." They were convinced then, and they remain convinced, that they had obtained a permanent and total lock on power. Anything short of that is, by definition (according to their version of "reasoning") fraudulent and criminal.

Therefore, when they commit crimes to suppress Democratic voting, they truly believe that they are freedom fighter partisans struggling to overthrow a nightmare tyranny.

That's the difference between the Reagan-era right and the modern right. The modern right sees itself as comic book heroes, waging heroic comic book war against comic book villainy.

The only way to stop them is to put them in prison and let them think over whether their heroic struggle is worth being shacked up with Psycho Eddie for a few years.

I doubt they are here in Minnesota, but I'll echo what I read someone post yesterday. If I see these assholes at my polling station meddling in the will of the American people, I will be dragging them out into the street and beating them. I may lose my one vote this year, and likely next year depending on what charges and sentencing brings for it, but at least everyone else will have their right to vote left alone. I know they have a ballot initiative in MN for voter IDs.

Remember - lying is a violation of the 10 Commandments. Except when lying for the Lord. That's totally allowable.
