Reg Henry wonders at the Republican One Note Samba:

History provides many examples of the public being invited by these folks to get their underpants in a knot: Russian expansionism, deficits, SARS, gay marriage, Marxist influence on government (a golden oldie), Common Core, the Islamic State, Obamacare death panels, Obama administration gun seizures, use of the Fairness Doctrine to shut down talk show hosts, terrorists in sombreros crossing the southern border to the astonishment of the locals, whatever crazy fool thing happens to be the fear du jour.

And now it is Ebola’s turn.

Because frightened persons stop thinking . . .

. . . is not standing up under judicial scrutiny, even the scrutiny of judges appointed by Republicans. A nugget (emphasis added).

Just 14 hours after the U.S. Supreme Court blocked Wisconsin’s voter ID law for the Nov. 4 election, five appeals court judges Friday issued a blistering opinion calling allegations of voter impersonation fraud “a mere fig leaf for efforts to disenfranchise voters likely to vote for the political party that does not control the state government.”

“Some of the ‘evidence’ of voter-impersonation fraud is downright goofy, if not paranoid, such as the nonexistent buses that according to the ‘True the Vote’ movement transport foreigners and reservation Indians to polling places,” wrote Judge Richard A. Posner of the 7th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals.

One suspects that the word, “goofy,” does not frequently appear in the opinions of Federal Appeals Courts.

Reg Henry muses on the motives of climate science deniers. A snippet:

The deniers do believe in science — it’s a libel to suggest otherwise — but the science they believe in is political science. Their political science tells them that the vast majority of the world’s scientists are magically in cahoots in order to impose socialism on the world and limit freedom.

This belief is where it all starts. It’s not about the few outlier scientists in the business of creating pasties to cover the shameless nudity of the philosophical body of denial thought. It is not about the evidence those mercenaries turn up, the anomalies they seize upon to try and set aside the whole general theory of climate change.

No, it is about the elephant in the room — unfortunately, the Republican elephant who has made Dumbo of many of his handlers and followers.

Leonard Pitts, Jr., comments on the right’s campaign to bowdlerize American history, leaving out the bits they don’t like (which, not surprisingly, are the bits that give the lie to their propaganda). A nugget:

Censoring history is an act of cowardice. The Colorado demonstrations suggest that some of us, at least, are still brave enough for the truth.

The Republican gut-out-the-vote effort continues:

According to the N.C. Board of Elections, Americans for Prosperity, a national conservative group, has created quite a headache by sending out incorrect voter registration information, including what was dubbed an “official” voter registration form. But the form was fraught with errors and conflicting information, including the deadline to register, whom to send voter registration information to, and who answers queries about voter information.

(snip)

The State Board of Elections says it has received hundreds of complaints from people receiving the forms. “It’s caused a lot of confusion,” said Joshua Lawson, a public information officer for the board. He noted that the board of elections works with political groups to prevent just this kind of misinformation, but Americans for Prosperity didn’t contact the board about the mailings.

Such misinformation about voter registration can be a felony if intentionally misleading and proven to suppress voters. We hope that’s not the case here. Some observers think it was just a mistake – though an egregious one.

It’s simple. Republicans know that, if people vote, they will lose. (Americans for Prosperity, by the way, is fueled by Koch.)
