WHAT'S A LITTLE VOTER FRAUD AMONG FRIENDS?

Voter ID is a solution that doesn't work to a problem that doesn't exist.

There is a big difference between people being paid by ACORN for every registration card they turn in creating fake registrations and people actually trying to vote with them.

There are huge incentives to demonstrate massive voter fraud and it hasn't happened. Every study of numerous ones made show voter fraud seems to occur at a rate of a dozen people per million or less.

There is an ulterior motive - as the Indiana study you linked to shows but you fail to mention - 91% of Republicans had photo ID and 83% of Democrats. The study found that the photo ID requirement depresses turnout among the poor (and therefore disproportionately affects minorities) and that "voter ID laws are subject to arbitrary and discriminatory enforcement by poll workers." False and exaggerated claims of voter fraud are commonly made in close elections, overwhelmingly by Republicans, despite this being almost entirely an urban legend - see "The Politics of Voter Fraud."

IS WAR WITH IRAN NOW JUST A MATTER OF TIME?

One - faulty initial premise.
Two - no acknowledgement of the consequences if the United States attacked.
Three - overall does not contribute anything worthwhile to the discussion of serious policy issues.

Sounds like the right wing nut house all right.

A 2005 US National Intelligence Estimate stated that IRAN was ten years from making a nuclear weapon
In 2006 Ernst Uhrlau, the head of German intelligence, said Tehran would not be able to produce enough material for a nuclear bomb before 2010 and would only be able to make it into a weapon by about 2015.
In 2006 two former CIA officials asserted that fear of a US attack is a significant factor in Iranian nuclear weapons policy.
The 2007 US National Intelligence Estimate is said to state that Iran will not be able to build a nuclear bomb until at least 2010 and possibly 2015.

SENATE SUGGESTS TELLING THE JIHADIS WHEN WE'RE LEAVING

This is setting up a later game of chicken with the President over funding with the advantage with the Democrats. They pass a bill with the money but stating withdrawal must start soon. Bush vetoes. They pass the same bill. Does Bush want the money for the troops or not?

What are the odds Bush-Cheney will do a big throw of the dice and attack Iran with planes and cruise missiles just before April 15th? I bet over 50%.

MUSHARRAF'S DEAL WITH THE DEVIL

What? I am still waiting for your comments on Bush admitting there were secret CIA detention camps after you assured everyone in April there weren't, that the whole thing was a sting operation to catch CIA leakers.

Maybe You might make me doubt future "facts" I get from right wing nuts.
