early voting

So here’s what happens when Republicans start turning voter suppression into a competition: In Ohio, it’s gotten so bad that a state representative is leading an effort to add a Voter Bill of Rights to the state Constitution to prevent any more efforts to muck around with the ability to vote. Ohio state Rep. Alicia […]

The U.S. Department of Justice will sue to block North Carolina’s terrible new voter suppression laws, according to the Associated Press. Attorney General Eric Holder seems to think that even after the Supreme Court threw out part of the 1965 Voting Rights Act, the rest of it still remains in effect and the federal government […]

Your FLOTUS correspondent can smell an ABC Family original movie a mile away, and this one smells like some combination of Ruby Bridges, that documentary about the choir for elderly people, and scallions. It is the story of Desaline Victor. Who is Desaline Victor? “At age 102, it’s possible Desaline Victor is the oldest guest […]

Who’s got two thumbs and voted yesterday? THIS GUY. Ohio allows early voting (sort of maybe if the Secretary of State allows it?) thirty-five days before the election. Because I am a shameless political hack, I knew exactly who I was voting for when the 2012 presidential race began in 2009. (Mitt Romney, obviously.) I […]

Remember when Ohio Republican Secretary of State John Husted tried to extend voting hours in Republican counties, and then when everyone bitched and moaned about it he was all FINE, I WILL TURN THIS CAR AROUND AND NO ONE GETS WEEKEND VOTING, and then it came out that this was all part of a heroic plan […]

The Obama campaign filed a lawsuit way back when, like last month or something, to claim that it was unconstitutional for Ohio to allow military voters early voting time in the three days before the election without extending the same time to all Ohio voters. Mitt Romney predictably lied about it, because the only things […]

It was only a few short days ago that Mitt Romney lied for no apparent reason about Barack Obama wanting to disenfranchise military voters. Somehow, giving everyone in Ohio three extra days to vote would be like the next Pearl Harbor, except instead of Japanese bombs, Obama’s planes would drop little Dennis Kuciniches to socialize […]

Did you know that Barack Obama hates the US military soooo much that he is trying to take away their voting rights? Mitt Romney said it, so it is a thing that could possibly have been true! (Haha, no it isn’t.) Yes, according to Old Mr. “You’ll Just Have to Trust Me,” the Barack Obama […]

We may mock Florida Governor Charlie Crist (pictured, center) for his weird penchant for dating women, but it is all in good fun: he seems like a very nice fellow and a good sport. Most of the time! Except, say, when it comes to John McCain, whom he now clearly loathes.

EARLY VOTING IS TREASON! “This nation of lazy slobs would rather spend the next five weeks on a scum-encrusted sofa eating Hot Cheetos and watching pornography on a flat-screen than caring about our country.” [AOL Political Machine]
