Bill Clinton complains about voter suppression: ah, irony
No question that Bill Clinton gave a good speech last night -- reading the transcript even I had to nod along in agreement in places. But his remarks about changing voting procedures to reduce turnout were pretty ironic:
If you want — if you want America — if you want every
American to vote and you think it is wrong to change voting
procedures…just — just to reduce the turnout of younger, poorer, minority, and disabled voters, you should support Barack Obama.
Has everyone already forgotten about his wife's disenfranchisement tricks in Nevada during the 2008 primary campaign? And how Bill defended those dirty tactics?
