Krusty on Jim Nussle's plan to require poll workers to check photo IDs:
What are people like Gordon [Fischer] and John Deeth afraid of? I used my credit card today and the lady asked to see my ID. If I went to the store to buy a six pack or a pack of smokes they would ask to see my ID. But if an election worker asks to see an ID its racist? I don’t get it. I think people like Gordon and John Deeth know their party can’t win if they don’t cheat.I think Nussle's plan is long overdue, even if I doubt there's much voter fraud and illegal alien voting in Iowa. If anything, it probably happens more with absentee balloting. But I know people who have been writing checks at their local grocery store for over 30 years and they still have to show ID. Same thing if you look under 40 years old and try to enter a casino.
It's so ironic that Democrats are complaining about requiring a photo ID in order to vote, considering how Democrats in the South were the ones who implemented poll taxes and literacy tests in order to keep those niggers from voting. Requiring a photo ID is not a poll tax. I suppose using that kind of crazy logic, me driving my car and burning gas in order to get to the election site is a poll tax.
Today, it's even more bizarre. You have corrupt black Democrats in St Louis who are getting busted and convicted for election fraud. It's pretty rare to hear of an instance where Republicans are pulling this kind of crap.
I've got to admit: Jim Nussle has moved into the driver's seat on a variety of small-but-killer issues that poll well for him: IPERS, eminent domain, English-only, and now showing ID on election day. And almost none of these issues would have been significant if Ed Fallon had been the nominee for the Democrats.
