Dems Go After Convicted Felon Vote
Democrats have found a rich new vein for mining votes: convicted felons.
In Alabama, Al Sharpton's younger brother, the Rev. Kenneth Glasgow, will take his "Prodigal Son" ministry into state prisons with voter-registration cards for the first time. The American Civil Liberties Union recently filed suit there and in Tennessee to make it possible for an even larger class of felons to register. In Ohio, the NAACP will hold a voter-registration day at the Justice Center in downtown Cleveland this month to register "people caught up in the criminal justice system," a local official said. In California, a team will stand in front of jails on Aug. 16 to register people visiting prisoners and encourage them to take registration cards to their incarcerated friends or family members, some of whom can legally vote.
In Florida, RINO Governor Charlie Crist recently pushed through a change that made 115,000 felons eligible to vote. The campaign to get them registered is being led by Obamunist civil rights lawyer Reggie Mitchell, who crows:
The majority of people to get their rights restored are Democrats, and if we get them registered, [we] might overtake the state.
Nice work, Crist. At least this might keep you from getting reelected.
That left-wing outfits assume the overwhelming majority of convicted felons would vote Democrat tells you all you need to know about the Party of Decline.
On a tip from Code3.

Democrats have to go after felons and illegal immigrants. Their policies certainly don't appeal to the middle and working classes.

BBC plan propaganda film of US "revenge" against Japan for bombing of Pearly Harbor. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-1043354/Devastation-Pearl-Harbour-revenge-attacks-revealed-BBC-project-2-000-feet-Pacific.html
Interesting twist on history to portray the US as aggressors and Imperial Japan as innocent victims, no?

Makes perfect sense to me. They've been championing criminality for years. Might as well go for the whole burrito.

Demmy 1:We've pandered to every minority and told them the Republicans are oppressing them, and we're still losing!
Demmy 2:What about criminals?
Demmy 1:You mean as a minority?
Demmy 2:Well, last I heard, theres thousands of those guys locked up. They can't vote. It's impeding on their constitutional right!
Demmy 1:My Gaia, your right! Phone up the ACLU and tell them about the criminal's plight! If we can pull this off, we'll win the election for sure!

Here in Iowa the Dims got convicted felon's voting rights passed a couple years ago. I believe they have to complete all terms of their sentence though before their rights are reinstated.

"People caught up in the criminal justice system" sounds like they accidentally stepped into a hole and turned an ankle.
I'm just not feeling the "victimhood" angle.

I got an email over the weekend indicating that someone in Congress is trying to deny troops in Iraq and Afghanistan the right to vote in Novemeber... but hey, let's not forget the criminals in prisons and jails across this country that shouldn't even be allowed to vote if they are incarcerated! This whole election thing is getting too darn sick!

Maybe if we can get all the heroin addicts to the polls, the Dems can pick up another few hundred thousand votes.
Perhaps some Republican governor someplace can make that a priority issue for his administration.

Not very surprising seeing that the party is filled with drug addicts, criminals, and morally corrupt people as it is.
Maybe they just feel more comfortable around there own.

"Pompey drank and drugged for long stretches and cannot remember the last ballot he cast, but he and his wife, Carolyn, are Democrats and admirers of Obama's campaign..."
That pretty much sums it up.

Every time I see Charlie Crist in the news I wish I could take my vote back but then as always I remember the alternative and swallow the vomit and say it is ok, god I am sick of doing that! We really need a third truly conservative party so we can kick the Republican party to the curb for good.

Oiao, YouTube has already sent the video you linked to down the memory hole, so it must have been good.
Posted by: Jay Guevara at August 11, 2008 12:57 PM
Jay, The link above still works. I think it is just loading slowly because it is getting hits.
Posted by: Oiao at August 11, 2008 1:03 PM
Oiao, you're right. After a few attempts (and getting the "video no longer available" message) I was able to get through.
What a pair of prize breeding gits. Is it me, or does the constant fiddling with the hair (by both of them) drive others up the wall too?

Is this satire? I'm not so sure. It's pitch perfect if it is.

A tradition of the Democratic Party: stuffing the ballot box.
Dems will stoop to anything to gain power.

OT – humor at Obama’s expense.
25 Hints You're Not Voting for Obama

LACK OF ENERGY IN WASHINGTON
While Obama preaches about tire pressure and “tune ups” and Pelosi struggles to save the planet and sends Congress on a 5 week vacation, and other Democrats campaign against new oil exploration and new refineries, something odd has been going on: Oil prices peaked and are now in a virtual freefall.
Don’t expect gas prices to fall under a buck again or to see $10. a barrel oil again in our lifetimes but that freefall began for a reason, for various reasons, actually. And it wasn’t due to using tire gauges or Democrat inaction.
People began to cut back on demand worldwide and in America but supply and demand were far from the whole story. Just a few weeks ago, some in OPEC were predicting $300. a barrel oil, well aware that consumers were tightening their energy belts.
So what else happened to cause this price decline?
Remember who was being blamed for the steep rise in oil prices? Evil, capitalistic oil companies, of course, but mostly speculators who were speculating that there was no visible price peak. Now they’re betting on a downward spiral because finally there were noises coming out of D.C. that some politicians, Republican politicians, were demanding we drill here and drill now, drill offshore, drill onshore, drill in ANWR, drill wherever we have to in order to gain energy independence and to provide an adequate supply of the life blood of America, oil.
In addition, calls were made to exploit our vast coal reserves, build nuclear power plants, and people like oil man T. Boone Pickens...

The 'rats have an affinity for convicted felons (& vice versa); both are rapers of society.

YEEEHAAAAH....Thanks, Oiao, for the links...whoever put that spoof together deserves the Pulitzer!!! Any of you who haven't seen it...you need to! :D:D As I commented on Youtube, it's always encouraging to see young folks whose parents have taught them a few things besides how to feel good, and who haven't guzzled the Left's Kool-aide.

Love that "caught up in the criminal justice system . . ." Talk about euphemistic! Hey, I only killed a guy in a drive-by shooting! Can you help me out! I'm caught up in the mean old nasty criminal justice system!
No doubt the good people of Florida are incredibly proud of their idiot (soon to be out of office) Governor Crist, RINO extraordinaire. Everything I hear from and about this guy just reinforces my first impression of this dolt: incompetent doesn't begin to describe him.

On the left coast, we have our own RINO extraordinaire--Arnold. I thought Californians had the winner of the best RINO award, if there was one. Which makes me wonder, what image would the RINO award have? Maybe the good folks of Moonbattery could hold a contest every year--including nominations and voting.

Hysterical global warming alarmist of the day. But for some reason, I found this one more amusing than most. Something about us all becoming extinct, either that or "And commit hundreds of billions of dollars per year to finance adaptation to climate change, especially in poor countries.

Only incarcerated democrats will get the vote. Incarcerated republicans will get the chair.

OT - The two former Marines, meanwhile, insist that the violence had racial overtones, although the assault has not been labeled a bias crime.
Where is the ACLU to defend against racism in this case? It was a rhetorical question……
Expect more of this type of crap with the Obama plan of inclusiveness……
Maybe when Michelle Obama reads this article, she will be even more proud of America?
Oh – there is no such thing as an ‘EX’ Marine. A Marine is and always will be a Marine.
