Jon Stewart: Republicans move to block Democrats from voting in Swing States.

“Voter I.D., which is gonna allow Gov. Romney to win the election? Done.” ~ a Republican State Rep, on video.

Update: “Ohio Republicans are allowing early voting in Republican districts, striking it down in Democratic districts.” ~

Uh, oh: the GOP is moving on Voter ID laws in swing states—despite a Republican Lawyers’ study that shows Voter Fraud just doesn’t happen.

Bonus: the author of Game of Thrones has made news with a recent tirade:

George R.R. Martin: “It is one thing to attempt to win elections. But trying to do so by denying the most basic and important right of any American citizen to hundreds and thousands of people, on entirely spurious grounds…that goes beyond reprehensible. That is despicable.”

It doesn’t happen, and this won’t stop it:

Wizards of I.D.
Conservatives and their media division are up in arms over voter fraud — coincidentally, almost entirely in swing states with Republican-controlled legislatures.

    If that's a lot of money, what's this?

    The mistake is thinking it actually makes a real difference who 'wins'…as JH Kunstler recently put it:

    "At the core of the manifold paradoxes swirling around American governance is the harsh reality that we just can't keep running our shit the way it has evolved to run. Neither candidate for president is honest enough to spell this out and indeed both act as though easy work-arounds exist for sustaining the unsustainable.

    In the case of Mr. Obama, it's paying limitless TBTF ransom money to overgrown banks to avoid the constant threats of collapse that they whisper in his ear – essentially a hostage racket. A policy of managed contraction is probably the only way to avoid unmanaged and uncontrollable collapse, and would include dismantling all the TBTF banks, but Mr. Obama won't acknowledge the imperative of contraction and the difficulties it represents. So he stands by hoping that Fed Chair Bernanke will keep shoveling ZIRP privileges, "twist' ops, bail-outs, and bond buying interventions to the "primary dealers" – a line-up of flimflams so abstruse that all the Paul Krugmen-type economists who ever lived might puzzle over them around the clock until the end of time and never unravel their inner workings.

    Mr. Romney subscribes to a set of fantasies out of the Chamber of Commerce playbook that all the familiar activities of status quo wealth generation could easily continue via the marvelous invisible hands of unfettered corporatism, if only the deadweight of government restrictions and the squandering of borrowed public "money" were swept away. His choice of running mate, Congressman Paul Ryan, is meant to embody all those notions — but more than that appeal to the inchoate mob of Tea Partiers who want to get the gubment's hands off their goshdarn medicare. Anyway, the net effect of Mr. Romney's business fantasies are so inadequate to the contractive forces underway that they would amount to pissing up the massive rope of history in a hurricane of events."

    Both men are utter tools – each leaning toward a slightly different faction of wealthy investors, the only difference lying in the rhetoric. Just another election year in America…

    "You can effect a change of robbers every four years. Inestimable privilege to pull off the glutted leech and attach the lean one! And you cannot even choose among the lean leeches, but must accept those designated by the programmers and showmen who have the reptiles on tap."
    – Ambrose Bierce

    I completely agree. I was trying to point out that Goldman Sachs are the kingmakers, not the american people.
