    Given how fond some are of calling anyone who isn't a Democrat here a racist, I guess this makes Massachusetts Democrats racists given how they are disenfranchising their delegates. It seems a bit insane that ID isn't required at the time of voting in the US.

    In recent years, Democrats have argued that requiring voters to show photo IDs prior to voting is an egregious act of voter suppression. Ben Jealous, of the NAACP, has gone so far as to argue that such requirements are tantamount to modern-day Jim Crow laws. In the world they inhabit, lots of voters don't have access to photo IDs, so requiring voters to provide this will "disenfranchise" them and leave them out of the democratic process. Funny they don't feel that way for their own party conventions.
    On Saturday, Massachusetts delegates will meet in their state's Democrat party convention. The votes of these delegates will determine whether there are primary elections for their party nominations. With so much at stake, Democrats have decided to implement Voter ID requirements:

    A PHOTO ID WILL BE REQUIRED TO ENTER THE MASSMUTUAL CENTER

    Wait, what? Democrats tell us that photo ID requirements disenfranchise minority voters, who, inexplicably, have limited access to photo IDs. Yet, at their own convention, they insist that all delegates provide a photo ID to even have access to the convention floor. When their own party is at state, it seems their priorities are somewhat different that their rhetoric suggests.

    Obama Campaign Checks IDs At The Door

    CLEVELAND — President Barack Obama's presidential campaign checked the identification of the supporters attending Obama's "framing" event at Cuyahoga Community College today. The 1,500 supporters in attendance picked up tickets at campaign offices in Northeast Ohio beginning on Monday, though tickets to the event made no mention of an ID requirement.

    Jessica Kershaw, the Obama campaign's Ohio Press Secretary, confirmed in a statement to BuzzFeed that the campaign checked every supporter's identification at the door. "We checked every ID at the door to make sure it matched with the name on the ticket that supporters filled out," she said. "We did this for every person who came in."

    The liberal "brain" is simply not capable of grasping that concept.


    Quite - why is it such a terrible idea to require photo ID to vote when it's required to attend political functions, to buy alcohol, buy smokes?

    Well, there is a big difference between a convention and a vote. Is attendance at the convention a Constitutionally-afforded right?

    The right-wing conservative brain is too psychotic to grasp the difference between a private event and a national vote.

    All the delegates who should be in, WILL get in. That's obvious to anyone with half a brain (note* this does not include RealJock Rethuglicans).

    Why is it necessary though to have photo ID at either? Why not both? What's the purpose of photo ID at the convention? And why doesn't this same logic apply to voting?
