Democrats have lately been adamantly genuflecting to their new bogeyman of Voter Suppression supposedly instigated by their constant source of irritation, Republicans who care about the country. MSNBC and Salon.commie are two of the more vocal criers of this false narrative with story after story about how the states’ have been in a rush to limit access to the ballot. What nefarious methods are these evil Republicans using to suppress the vote? By closing their offices on time. That’s it. Please, if Republicans really wanted to suppress the Democratic base, they wouldn’t put the early voting hours during the time of the day most of the base has free, as Mitt Romney’s campaign ads and Ann Coulter’s latest book this month, “Democrats are So Lazy That When They Sit Around the House, They Sometimes Forget to Pick Up their Welfare Checks” reminds us (Oh, Ann, are you ever not the wittiest? Check out Chapter 3 where she writes from the perspective of a poor welfare mother who jumps for joy when she gets pregnant again for the 12th time all in a madcap scheme to not have to get a real job and stay on welfare. It’s funny because it’s true to what we think about poor people. )
But when voter suppression is happening to Republicans right in front them, on the very network that I said earlier was all about decrying perceived voter suppression, how does the liberal media react? With smirks and guffaws and derision I can only imagine. Mainly because I don’t really read or watch anything other than sources that support what I already know is right.
So when some entity unknown as of yet so lets just call them Obama supporters until we know more, tried to change the way Republicans vote in the convention for future nominees so that delegates are actually suppose to vote for the people who were voted for by the people in their primary and/or caucus and/or How Many Fingers Am I Holding Up (Guam) contests, of course the delegates took offense and became offensive. How dare someone try to suppress a state’s floor vote based solely on the fact that some delegates, pretending to be delegates for a certain candidate because that is what said they would be when they agreed to be delegates, were never really planning on being delegates for that candidate at all. But with these new stricter rules, the delegate is obligated to vote for his assign candidate. To me, this is almost like making those delegate perform a kind of voter fraud, not being allowed to circumvent the actual agreements they made with the state parties.
This has left a bitter taste in many of the delegates’ mouth no amount of $14 watered down hotel bar drinks can wash away. This real instant of voter suppression of Republicans by this secret cabal that is most likely Soros-funded, and not a peep that I know of from the left.
Thanks for nothing, Rachel Maddow.
And your’re welcome.
