Posted at 8:55am on Jun. 30, 2008 Barack Obama's ACORN Connection
The defeat that stings the worst is when you feel like you've been beaten at your own game. The narrow defeats of the Presidential elections of 2000 and 2004 have energized the lunatic base of the Democratic Party. Images of Diebold-rigged voting machines, minority voter intimidation and The Political Anachronism That Is the Electoral College have haunted the activists' dreams for eight years. We can expect the Dems to pull out all the stops to make sure it doesn't happen in 2008.
One need not look to the Book of Revelation to find reason to be troubled by the presumptive Democratic nominee. The "Unholy Trinity" -- Barack Obama, Chicago politics and the radical "community development" organization that goes by the acronym ACORN -- should be troubling enough.

Posted at 10:23am on Jan. 10, 2008 Liberals Look Like Losers in Voter ID Case
Anti-ID advocates embarrassed by one of their own
Yesterday's arguments in the U.S. Supreme Court case on an Indiana voter ID law couldn't have gone much worse for liberals who want to overturn the state's statute targeting vote fraud. Justices appeared inclined to reject arguments from the Indiana Democratic Party and ACLU and uphold two lower-court decisions favoring the Indiana law.
The court's swing vote, Justice Anthony Kennedy, dampened the left's hopes when he expressed skepticism about the requirements of the law. In questioning the lawyer for the state Democratic Party and ACLU, Kennedy asked, "You want us to invalidate a statute on the ground that it's a minor inconvenience to a small percentage of voters?" At a time when Americans are asked to show photo ID for routine things such as buying alcohol or getting on an airplane, it hardly seems unreasonable to do the same before voting.
But perhaps the best moment of the hour-long hearing came when Justice John Paul Stevens asked U.S. Solicitor General Paul Clement whether Democrats were adversely impacted more than Republicans because of the state's photo ID requirement. Clement, who supports the Indiana law, shot back that that if "this was a cleverly designed mechanism by the Republican Party to disadvantage the Democratic Party, at least in 2006 it looks like it went pretty far awry."
Already facing an uphill battle in the courts, liberals were done in by one of their own yesterday when a woman cited by critics of the law was discovered to be a fraud herself. A story from KPC News added to an already lengthy list yet another example of how liberals cheat through the use of vote fraud.
