Ryan Won't Swing WI Romney's Way So It's Back To The Voter ID Baloney
Desperate? You bet.
See, Paul Ryan's choice as Vice president hasn't provided the needed bump Republicans needed to win Wisconsin. Romney wants to win Wisconsin - plus it's kind of embarrassing when your Veep candidate can't win his home state.
Van Hollen is trying to amp up the chances Republicans can win by pushing through Voter ID before November. How's that for winning hearts and minds? We can't win with our principles and appeal so let's make sure we fuck up the system enough so Democrats lose. Klassy.
The Siren has said before, we don't mind an ID law as long as ID's are free and easy to get - which at this point they are not - no matter what your teabilly neighbor says.
It is completely possible the Republican leaning Supreme Court in Wisconsin could take up the case and help Romney by disenfranchising voters this November. But hey, a win is a win is a win.
