As noted on Talking Points Memo (video excerpt below), Gary Bauer of the Family Research Council has shown he is no better than the thuggish clerics urging angry young men in the Middle East to vent their frustrations towards the easy American scapegoat. In Bauers' case, he directed his bile during the absurdly named "Values Voters Summit" on Friday, venting at "people who depend on checks from their fellow taxpayers."
But Bauer didn't stop there. "My prediction is after all the votes are counted — even the dead votes of Democrats in Chicago, Detroit and Cleveland — I predict that we will win, that this nightmare will be over and America will finally be on the road to recovery."
Let's first unwrap this racist and partsian voter fraud canard. Are the only people who die and whose names are not instantly taken off voter rolls Democrats--not Republicans? No, that's not how it actually works in election administration, but who cares about annoying facts. And isn't it curious that dead Democrats happen to be from cities with large African-American and minority populations?
