Bill Nelson, Dick Durbin, and Eric Holder ham it up as only Democrat demagogues can.

The charges against Florida’s new election law are dopey enough that the Florida ACLU has filed suit against implementing the law.
Bob Sanchez, policy director for the James Madison Institute in Tallahassee, a free market think tank, says it’s vital to ensure that people who vote are who they say they are and are citizens eligible to vote, as the new Florida law attempts to do.
“It’s an ultimate irony that some voices are saying how sacred voting rights are, but as soon as elected officials do something they don’t like they rush to unelected officials in the courts to overturn what the elected officials have done,” Sanchez said.
These sorts of transparently baseless and cynical charges against voting laws are being made in several states, without any serious scrutiny given to them by the local liberal media. Even Attorney General Holder is in on the act. In a speech in Austin, Texas, Tuesday he anguished over unspecified attempts by you-know-who to suppress minority voter turnout. He said he would be casting an eye on Florida, as well as other states.
“We need election systems that are free from fraud, discrimination, and partisan influence — and that are more, not less, accessible to the citizens of this country,” Holder said.
If only, huh? Perhaps Holder could sub out part of the access portion of this project to the Black Panthers. Baxley is unimpressed, saying, “Eric Holder needs to clean his own house rather than trying to clean ours. He has his own problems.”
I left multiple messages at Nelson’s office and that of Durbin’s subcommittee asking for clarification on how Florida’s new laws keep anyone away from the polls, let alone selects Democratic constituencies to disenfranchise. My calls were not returned. Can’t hardly blame these folks. It’s never easy or fun to defend the indefensible.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.

It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
