Joe Walsh Bucks Republican Orthodoxy? Increased Federal Power or Simply Voter Supression?

Fascinating news today that fringe Republican Congressman Joe Walsh (IL 8th) last month actually argued in favor of national identification at a town hall event, bucking a long-standing Republican orthodoxy against national identification (including national drivers' licensing).

Is this simply a radical, election year shift from traditional Republican "state's rights" rhetoric or is he simply seeking to codify current Republican attempts at voter supression?

Stay tuned . . .
