My friend over at Alexa Shrugged (www.alexashrugged.com A great blog you should visit) made a hilarious observation about what is going on in Washington D.C. during preparations for the oncoming hurricane named Irene.
Alexa noted this specific part:
Residents, with DC identification, may pick up sandbags (up to five per household) at RFK Stadium, Lot 7.
Alexa found the whole “DC identification” thing rather amusing.
“Need ID to pick up sandbags, but not to vote,” she snarked.
Totally hilarious, no?
You need a valid ID to save your home, but you don’t need an ID to vote??
Absolutely incredible and Good Night Irene.
And, last, what are you supposed to do with just five sandbags? Save the dog house in the back yard?
Twitter friend Meredith Reed notes another amusing aspect to this story. What is the main criticism that lefties have about voter ID laws? It is that “the poor” are being kept from voting because it is a “poll tax” to have the onerous requirement of getting a state ID. So, Meredith wonders why Democrats in D.C. are now forcing “the poor” to lose their homes in a storm because they have that oppressive requirement of having an ID to get their five little sandbags?
WHY oh WHY does the left hate the poor?
