I sorta, kinda resent that. If there was a history of voter fraud in Wisconsin to warrant a voter ID law, I'd be OK with it. There is no history of that fraud. Believe me, alleged voter fraud had nothing to do with the new law, which is why it was overturned....for now.

I have news for you. The voter ID laws are the voter fraud. I have news for the Republican voters: the people doing the ^*&(#% are ^*&(#% you just as much as they are ^*&(#% the Democrats. But as W. C. Fields said, "You can't smarten up a chump."

Voter ID laws are an over-reaction to the Democratic party's 'get out the vote' campaigns that saw abuses in voter registration attempts (none successful) in various states, including Ohio. It's up to the courts to correct the overreaction, and that's good. Calmy.. please. Political pendulums swing so fast, and that's what makes it the pits.

Not quite. The GOP has been trying to push voter ID laws for years, well before any of those (non-successful) abuses you mention. So it is not so much an overreaction as just recently successful attempts to get passed laws they have been trying to push for at least the last couple decades. It should never have reached the stage of needing the courts to correct this.
