Even the New York Times recognizes that Illinois is in the toilet, about to be flushed

About 1.8 million dead people listed as active voters.

 But hey, not to worry, it’s “not evidence of fraud.” The Pew Report doesn’t say how many dead people are voting in Chicago, although that’s a legendary activity here. More to the point, the voter registration process is a mess. Not mentioned in the story is the debate over tightening up the voting process by... Read more »

Truthers, birthers and now, racers

This is getting beyond tiresome. Another idiot, Bob Herbert at the New York Times, is unleashing a vitriolic attack on white people for their intimate, racist thoughts that clog their pale Jimmy Carter: Racer noggins.
