Republicans reminding you why you shouldn’t vote for Mitt Romney.
In the words of that immortal American poet, Scooby-Doo… “R’uh R’oh”.
If you’re Mitt Romney, heading into your convention, still in the middle of the Todd Akin FIASCO, this is the last thing you want to see.
We had some examples of Republican Panic yesterday. This is going to cause some more.
These machinations make a mockery of the democracy we put on display every Election Day. The right to vote is the key to that democracy, giving value to the freedom of speech and making the freedom of religion and the right to assemble possible. When one takes away another’s right to vote, he is taking dead aim at democracy and undermining the very virtue that makes us the envy of the world.
Including as many Americans as possible in our electoral process is the spirit of our country. It is why we have expanded rights to women and minorities but never legislated them away, and why we have lowered the voting age but never raised it. Cynical efforts at voter suppression are driven by an un-American desire to exclude as many people and silence as many voices as possible.
