Skip to comments.RON HART: A voter Freudian slip by the Democrats

A long long time ago, I can still remember how that music used to make me smile, and I knew if I had my chance that I could make those people dance, and maybe they'd be happy for a while ..." "American Pie" lyrics
CHATTANOOGA, TENN. The Democratic Party, via its enforcement arm Eric Holder and his Department of Injustice, tells us there is almost no voter fraud in America. When they are not suing states like Arizona and Florida that are trying to protect their citizens in areas the federal government will not, they are ignoring cases of voter intimidation documented on tape, choosing not to prosecute. New Black Panther Party members brandished police-style baton weapons to intimidate voters attempting to enter a polling station in Philadelphia in 2010.
Our attorney general dropped the case, even fighting with some on the right about his decision. I think Holders official, Forrest Gump-like statement to those intimidated voters was, Sorry we had a fight in the middle of your New Black Panther party.
So when Republicans seek legislation requiring that those who vote simply show an ID, the same type it takes to get into the Democratic National Convention or the Justice Department building or on any commercial airplane, the Dems call it "racist" and "an unusual burden." The Justice Department actually sues states that wish to require proper identification to vote.
We saw the contempt the Democrats have for fair voting at their recent convention. When they were caught possibly evoking the wrath of God and even worse, of the Jews by writing them out of their party platform. Soon after, the DNC tried to make amends.
Showing their true colors, the Dems tried to slip Jerusalem and God back into their platform (Obama probably only went along because he thought they were talking about him). Clear voter fraud was committed on national television for all to see.
It took a two-thirds majority vote to pass the resolution amending the platform; when the mayor of L.A. called for a voice vote, three times, it was clear that, at best, the yeas and nays were tied. It was a national embarrassment, especially since the "outcome" of the vote was already written onto the teleprompter in front of him.
It might make sense for ex-President Jimmy Carter, who monitors elections in third-world countries as one of his perpetual penances for being a bad president, to be tapped to watch over the next Democratic convention vote.
Ratings of CNNs coverage of the Bill Clinton speech tied the TLC reality show spin-off from "Toddlers and Tiaras" called "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo." I cannot believe people would rather watch a petulant, redneck prima donna on TV than Honey Boo Boo. Re-runs of "The Big Bang Theory," which I think was a documentary on the Clinton White House years, came in a close third.
Yet Clinton endures. His speech and the Ted Kennedy video tribute showed America just how much Democrats love women. It is an abusive relationship, however; about every four years they party and then they get all emotional and drunk-dial Slick Willie, begging him to take them back.
It seems to me that Sandra Fluke, the woman who can afford $70,000 a year for Georgetown Law School (but not $9 a month for her birth control pills) should be outraged at Bill Clinton. At least she should demand Clinton pay Monica Lewinskys dry cleaning bill.
Not much really changes; we already know the words. Clinton gave another stem-winding, 47-minute speech. It was like listening to a rock opera, or "American Pie," or maybe Lynyrd Skynyrds "Freebird" with its 20-minute drum solo.
The DNC proved how much the Dems love democracy and fair voting when they rammed through that farcical vote, saying it passed by a two-thirds majority. And they showed us what great supporters of women they are by choosing Bill Clinton, the impeached, disbarred and all civil-suited-up spokesman for respecting women, to give a speech.
It was too bad they did not let Anthony Weiner or John Edwards chime in on the imaginary war on women.

“It was like listening to a rock opera, or “American Pie,” or maybe Lynyrd Skynyrds “Freebird” with its 20-minute drum solo.”
Um...this guy has obviously never listened to “Freebird”.
Is he thinking of In-A-Gadda-Da-Vidda? What a moron.
