Gary May on how ALEC and the right use voter fraud as a pretext to attack voting rights. In the comments section is an insightful post by "Captain America":
This is hardly breaking news. It was manifest a decade ago. In fact, just about every "problem" that demands a right-wing "solution" is manufactured, either out of whole cloth or as a result of previous "solutions":

Ta-Nehisi Coates on Dr. Benjamin Carson:
Last week, Carson came under attack for comparing advocates of same-sex marriage with advocates of bestiality and the North American Man/Boy Love Association. He then cast himself as a victim of political correctness, besieged by white liberals — “the most racist people there are” — who could not countenance his heterodoxy and wanted to keep him on the “plantation.”
The plantation metaphor refers to a popular theory on the right. It holds that the 95 percent of African-Americans who voted for a Democratic president are not normal Americans voting their beliefs, but slaves. A corollary to the plantation theory is the legend of the Conservative Black Hope, a lonesome outsider, willing to stare down the party of Obamacare and stand up for the party of voter ID. Does it matter that this abolitionist truth-teller serves at the leisure of an audience that is overwhelmingly white? Not really. Blacks are brainwashed slaves; you can’t expect them to know what’s in their interest.

Matthew Yglesias on Senator Rob Portman's change of heart about gay marriage upon finding out that his son is gay:
But if Portman can turn around on one issue once he realizes how it touches his family personally, shouldn't he take some time to think about he might feel about other issues that don't happen to touch him personally? Obviously the answers to complicated public policy questions don't just directly fall out of the emotion of compassion. But what Portman is telling here is that on this one issue, his previous position was driven by a lack of compassion and empathy. Once he looked at the issue through his son's eyes, he realized he was wrong. Shouldn't that lead to some broader soul-searching? Is it just a coincidence that his son is gay, and also gay rights is the one issue on which a lack of empathy was leading his astray? That, it seems to me, would be a pretty remarkable coincidence. The great challenge for a Senator isn't to go to Washington and represent the problems of his own family. It's to try to obtain the intellectual and moral perspective necessary to represent the problems of the people who don't have direct access to the corridors of power. . . Senators basically never have poor kids. That's something members of congress should think about. Especially members of congress who know personally well that realizing an issue affects their own children changes their thinking.

Obama appointed lowlife sleaze Ben Ginsburg to his voting commission!!!!

Greatest Things about The State of the Union Speech
1. When President Obama mentioned 102-year-old Deseline Victor who waited 7 hours in line to vote in Florida--the long lines were intentional.
2. The fact that Ted Nugent didn't crap his pants again.
UPDATE: Conpassionate Conservatism--Fox Mocks 102-Year-Old's Long Wait To Vote. It's not surprising to me that one of the mockers, Bill Hemmer, is a Miami of Ohio grad.

Must Read: Greg Palast's Billionaires and Ballot Bandits
Last fall, I recommended Greg Palast's Billionaires and Ballot Bandits: How to Steal and Election in 9 Easy Steps. Even though the election is over, the book is still very relevant. It's scary and a great read.

Limbaugh Caller Sylvia from New Jersey Put a Foot to Limbaugh's Fat Ass
Since Media Matters for America has been monitoring Limbaugh, I have listen to Limbaugh's show less often. I turned it on today and Limbaugh put on a caller, Sylvia from Clinton Township, New Jersey and she let El Rushbo have on the Sandra Fluke matter and started to take him on regarding health care legislation when Limbaugh cut here off. Limbaugh later called her a "seminar caller." Seminar caller = someone who can cut through Limbaugh's bullshit. Essentally that's what Limbaugh accused me of being when I called him during the 2000 campaign.

Terry McAuliffe for Govenor of Virginia?
Terry McAuliffe is again running to be governor of Virginia (he got trounced in the Democratic primary in 2009 and I celebrated). Here is my open letter to Democratic primary voters when McAuliffe last made a run.
