Well, America wins again, thanks to an increasingly conservative Supreme Court populated by right thinking Republican Presidents.
States can require voters to produce photo identification, the Supreme Court ruled Monday, upholding a Republican-inspired law that Democrats say will keep some poor, older and minority voters from casting ballots.
This is wise, as poor people are generally less informed than wealthy people who actually follow politics and tend to vote Republican. At first, only property owning males were allowed to vote. Sometimes the old ways are the right ways. This is one of them.
The ruling means the ID requirement will be in effect for next week’s presidential primary in Indiana, where a significant number of new voters are expected to turn out for the Democratic contest between Sens. Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama.
Ha ha moonbats! Wouldn’t it be funny if no Democrats were eligible to vote? You bet it would!
Now liberals can’t just round up a bunch of so-called “new voters” with free crack, malt liquor and taco supremes. These “new voters” must actually be eligible to vote. That is, they must actually have valid id. Illegals, criminals and other traditional Democrat party voters need not apply.
Liberal holdouts Breyer, Souter and Ginsberg dissented, presenting this ridiculous sob story:
Indiana’s voter ID law “threatens to impose nontrivial burdens on the voting rights of tens of thousands of the state’s citizens,” Souter said.
The targets of the law, he said, are “voters who are poor and old.”
Oh boo hoo. Cry me a river. Get an ID or get out. And don’t bother voting if you refuse to present your national ID card. Slackers.
