Republicans Really Do Love Colored People

Just not their right to vote:

Previously undisclosed documents detail how Republican operatives, with the knowledge of several White House officials, engaged in an illegal, racially-motivated effort to suppress tens of thousands of votes during the 2004 presidential campaign in a state where George W. Bush was trailing his Democratic challenger, Senator John Kerry.The documents also contain details describing how Bush-Cheney 2004 campaign officials, and at least one individual who worked for White House political adviser Karl Rove, planned to stop minorities residing in Cuyahoga County from voting on election day.The efforts to purge voters from registration rolls was spearheaded by Tim Griffin, a former Republican National Committee opposition researcher. Griffin recently resigned from his post as interim US attorney for Little Rock Arkansas. His predecessor, Bud Cummins, was forced out to make way for Griffin.

    The republicans are truly disgusting and criminals on all levels. God forbid they should win or loose on the honesty of an election. Not only have they destroyed the Constitution, but they have made a complete joke out of our right to vote.

    Everyone in that article need to go to jail for caging.

    And, of course, they feel no remorse about. Its no wonder that Black people are the most solid of Democratic constituency groups.

    Speaking of Ohio, has everyone heard the inside the Beltway rumor?

    The next name expected to be revealed on the DC Madam’s list of clients will be Ohio Republican Rep. John Boehner!

    All the weeping! All that dissing of President Clinton! All that family values hypocrisy! I’ll be posting about it the moment my source confirms the rumor.

    @ Christopher, I have a feeling that the D.C. Madame’s list is going to be a gift that keeps on giving.

    @ C.J., didn’t we go through that whole “test to vote” thing already? Remember how it was used to deny Blacks the right to vote? I am sure the Repugs would love to do something like this, but we ain’t going to fall for that crap again.

    yeah, our society tends to overreact. We throw the baby out with the bathwater on regular occassions. Rather than regulate it, we do away with it, and now all of our fates are consistently, and proven by our choices to be, determined by those that have no idea whats going on.
