don't worry, it's a white kid, no fraud hereWe handily explained Pennsylvania’s voter ID law to you earlier this week, so we will make that up to you by informing you of someone being a shithead about the whole thing.

You see, hundreds of thousands of otherwise eligible Pennsylvania voters may not be able to get IDs, and there is a reason for that. State Rep. Daryl Metcalfe, speaking to KDKA Radio, has determined that is is just lazy olds and blacks being unwilling to do the work necessary to assure him they aren’t committing voting fraud.

HOST: Are you absolutely convinced…that the methods to implement this law are effective and will in fact make sure no legitimate voter will be disenfranchised?

METCALFE: I don’t believe any legitimate voter that actually wants to exercise that right and takes on the according responsiblity that goes with that right to secure their photo ID will be disenfranchised. As Mitt Romney said, 47% of the people that are living off the public dole, living off their neighbors’ hard work, and we have a lot of people out there that are too lazy to get up and get out there and get the ID they need. If individuals are too lazy, the state can’t fix that.

It is probably good for Mitt that even at the state and local level, people are taking his strong message of 47% of America lovingly going to fuck itself in its tender bum to the airwaves.

Here is something that occurs to Your Wonkette: if you are too lazy to go get an ID, aren’t you too lazy to commit voter fraud? Let’s think about this for a second: you are too lazy to go stand in line at the DMV, but you will drive around to multiple locations on a workday to fraudulently vote after you fraudulently registered weeks in advance in coordination with thousands of other lazy bums. Presumably, there are also checklists and spreadsheets that go along with this sort of thing, all coordinated by someone who won’t take a half hour to get an ID. (Let us never mind that it can actually take hours or even days to get an ID. Those are facts to be discussed in December.)

Maybe if you are so lazy about getting an ID, you are also so lazy about frauding people, and so should probably be allowed to vote without an ID. This, friends, is logic.

    • PsycWench

      This guy's going further than Mitt…Mitt talked about 47% not paying income tax and Metcalf has them all on welfare and food stamps, er, SNAP. I'm sure the Romney campaign is excited about that.

        And it's so difficult for voters this time around, what with Mittz being digital and his wife being Annalog.

    • SorosBot

      That's still one more fraudulently cast vote than there is any evidence has actually been cast in recent decades,

  • Why don't these fuckheads just get it over with it and say they don't want the Blahs in the cities to vote for Obama? I'm sure there are plenty of nice Blah gentlemen from North Philadelphia or the Hill District in Pittsburgh who would be willing to show them the error of their ways.

    • finallyhappy

      North Philly- I went to college there!

      • Me too. Dodging bullets at Temple was a fun pastime, but the best partwas that the Saladalley restaurant on campus sold beer by the pitcherand DID NOT CARD!

  • The GOP is on a roll – by excluding the 47% in lower income groups, 51-52% of female americans, 10% gay americans, 12% latino americans and 15% african americans – they are going to be pushing toward ZERO PERCENT of the vote this year.

  • Ruhe

    HOST: Are you absolutely convinced…that the methods to implement this law are effective and will in fact make sure no legitimate gun owner will be deprived of their second amendment rights?

    METCALFE: I don’t believe any legitimate gun enthusiast that actually wants to exercise that right and takes on the according responsiblity that goes with that right to secure a permit and use liscense will be prevented from owning arms. As Mitt Romney said, 47% of the people that are living off the public dole, living off their neighbors’ hard work, and we have a lot of people out there that are too lazy to get up and get out there and take the gun safety courses they need. If individuals are too lazy, the state can’t fix that.

    Nah…that could never happen.

  • Oblios_Cap

    I was in the local pub being harangued by an acquaintance who is a libertarian. He was getting quite drunk and took offense when I told him that I had to hand it to him – at least he was honest about being a selfish prick. Whereupon he began calling me a useless parasite since I work for a psuedo-governmental agency (it did no good to tell him I was not paid by the goverment and was not actually a government employee; you know how facts can really screw up a good screaming match). anyway, I got tired of arguing and told him that yes, I was just a slacker wasting his tax dollars, and I loved doing it. I offered to cut out the middleman by letting him pay my bar tab up front.

    Hilarity ensued.

    • keep up the good work!

      though i don't wish you more encounters with screaming libertarians.

      • Oblios_Cap

        Well, the fact that he was claiming that he was a producer (not a moocher!) was because recently he got busted for growing and selling dope. Which I was nice enough to point out, though I am not against the practice personally. That episode has only increased his antipathy toward the government, for some reason.

        • Steverino247

    Where are the small government folks on this issue? I don't have to carry or own any god damn id to do anything except travel (hum..) or to be brown in Arizona (right..), and the state wants to exclude me from the democratic process unless I request an ID from them?
    Why are none of these fake mother fuckers in their colonial uniforms making any noise about government issued voting permits? Oh, that's right, because they don't read god damned books, they only listen to the radio, and everyone they listen to on the radio says its all good via code words and dog whistles.
    Blacks are stealing from you, let's make sure they can't vote because they won't pay the poll tax/ pass the laziness test. That was real hard to decode there, Senator racist piece of shit. Also, obstacles to voting are ok as long as I can easily clear them. Everyone else, too bad you fail the tests I put up-you failed them because you are black. The end.

    • HELisforHEL

      Well said. And their silence on this point is pretty deafening (though unsurprising).

      It's amazing that a bunch of lardasses in government-issued Jazzies can feel that they are the hardest working people evah and that the only reason they don't have that mansion on the hill is because the Blahs and Feminazis and gubmint regulations (like clean air & water) are keeping them down.

  • This goes back to slave masters. Slaves didn't volunteer to be there, and didn't agree to work hard, yet faced the constant possibility of violent reprisal for not working hard. To then turn around and accuse the slaves of being inherently lazy probably served as an extremely useful way for owners to guarantee continued compliance. Doesn't matter how hard you worked yesterday, if you're branded (perhaps literally) as lazy. Gotta prove yourself anew every goddamn day or be whipped or even hung.

    What this guy is saying has it's roots in all that.
