"If you need an ID to buy cold medicine, [then] it's reasonable to require it to vote," said the Republican governor of Wisconsin.Apparently (I had to ask my tweeps) Scott Walker is talking about pseudoephedrine, a decongestant that is used in the illicit production of methamphetamine. Walker is actually comparing purchasing it to the constitutional right to vote. He's saying because the federal and State controlled substances statutes require photo ID to purchase controlled substances, then, thus, therefore, ergo, the state may require you to present photo ID in order to exercise your constitutional right — your First Amendment right, according to the right-wing Justice Patience Roggensack — to vote. Does anybody really buy Walker's illogical and nonsensical analogies? If so, do they need to present a photo ID?
And can Scott Walker go one day without insulting our intelligence?
Oh, and get this, look who's being investigated for "vote fraud," an aide to a conservative Republican legislator in the Wisconsin Assembly.
What a clown show.
