Caw! Caw! Jim Crow! Jim Crow! Caw! Caw!

Brawk Brawk! The Election Was Stolen, Bush Lied, The Election Was Stolen! Brawk! Liberal Want A Cracker!

Like a broken '45' from the 1960's, today's race baiters who make their living off perpetuating the myth of the downtrodden minority are screaming about new legislation requiring all voters to show a government issued picture ID when they show up to vote. Judging by the hysteria you would think they were being asked to give a pound of flesh.

When Georgia passed its voter ID act, the democratic members of my state legislature put on a show like you've never seen. Slave songs were sung, tears flowed, chains and shackles were pounded on desks. To hear them talk, the next step after this is the resurrection of the slave auction block on Peachtree Street.

Said Judge Greg Mathis & Rep. Barbara Lee:

Both Judge Greg Mathis, the star of a syndicated courtroom TV show, and California Rep. Barbara Lee claimed that the last two presidential elections had been "stolen." Judge Mathis told the rally Republican leaders "need to be locked up because they're all criminals and thieves." Other speakers claimed Georgia's new photo ID law would suppress poor and elderly minority voters who might lack such a document. When the bill passed the Georgia House in March, black legislators sang slave songs and one even slammed a prisoner's shackles on the desk of the sponsor.

Their argument against requiring ID? As always with liberalite ideology, it presumes helplessness and stupidity. "Elderly and minority voters won't be able to get an ID, they don't know how." "They can't afford the fee." "It will confuse them and having to jump through such hoops will intimidate minority voters." Sheesh! Get real people. Senior citizens and minorities are perfectly capable of figuring out how to get an ID. In fact, since you have to show ID to do almost anything these days, from cash a check to buy alcohol, I would say most people already have one.

There are saner voices out there however:

Juan Williams, a National Public Radio correspondent and author of "Eyes on the Prize: America's Civil Rights Years," is "stunned" by such vituperation. He told Fox News that it is "reacting to devils that have been slain 40 years ago." He says that "in service to having no fraud elections, I think you could say to people, go and get a legitimate ID. I don't think that's too much to ask."

Andrew Young, the former Atlanta mayor and U.N. ambassador who spoke at the rally, believes that in an era when people have to show ID to rent a video or cash a check "requiring ID can help poor people." He noted that Georgia is deploying a mobile bus to issue voter ID's and allowing groups like the NAACP to arrange for it to go to specific sites.

Mr. Young says rehashing arguments about the 2000 and 2004 elections doesn't solve much--"I accept the recounts that show George Bush won"--and says it's time for fresh thinking. "[Let's] ask what we do about low voter turnout and whether it's the result of racial discrimination or not," he told me. "I don't think it is, since everyone is equally inconvenienced by how we vote." He suggests moving Election Day to a weekend and expanding the hours polls are open.

How long will the liberalites beat their head against the stone wall of logic that is requiring [gasp!] ID in order to vote? You know the answer as well as I do - until they draw their last breath. In fact, they don't even need for anyone to actually be intimidated or disenfranchised in order to make the charge. In typical leftist fashion, if you THINK it's happening, the it is! Opinion carries as much weight as fact and empirical evidence after all.

It's always a tempest in a liberalite teapot isn't it? After all, if people are happy, responsible, and self-reliant then Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Cynthia McKinney et. Al. are out of a job.
