The Obama Administration may be going all-out to prevent states from requiring photo IDs from those voting, but Michelle Obama is fine with imposing a photo ID requirement on those attending her book signings. Those wishing to attend book-signing events featuring the First Lady must buy her bookAmerican Grown: The Story of the White House Kitchen Garden and Gardens Across Americaand present a valid photo ID.
Theres no hypocrisy, Press Secretary Jay Carney maintained. Comparing voting and visiting with the First Lady is like comparing apples and oranges. Voting is a right that may not be infringed. Meeting the First Lady is a privilege that can be withheld from anyone for any reason.
Carney characterized requiring photo IDs for voting as clearly unwarranted. Voting is a basic human right. No human should be barred from it based on trivial concerns over identity or place of residence. The only thing a poll worker should be asked to ascertain is whether he is giving a ballot to a human being. This standard is simple and straightforward. Anyone can make it and it assures that everyones human right to vote is preserved.

ALMOST, John — you ALMOST got me!
Dang, you’re good!
Carney’s dumb enough to say all this stuff—where’s the satire?
What bold arrogance they possess!!
I missed the “satire” part, too.
:) Another good one John.

Hoo Boy! Ol’ Carney may live to regret that answer. The question now is, which reporter will have the stones to follow up with:
“Mr. Carney, the right to bear arms is also a right that may not be infringed, so why do we need photo ID to purchase a firearm?”
I had to read it twice before I realized the satire. Because...it is all too close to the truth. Good one!
all priviledges DENIED!!!
