And Obama does the right thing! Also, Coulter longs to disenfranchise (other) women.
Quite a load of goodies from today’s BradBlog…

Several stories of note, so far, today at The BRAD BLOG. And if you haven’t noticed yet, the top GOP strategy for 2008 is, as expected: “Voter fraud, voter fraud, voter fraud!”.
Good luck, boys. Thanks to Obama today for stopping a bit of that in it’s tracks. For now. — Brad

Duncan Hunter: We’ve Seen Illegal Aliens
Herded into the Polls, Voting Illegally in California
U.S. Rep from the Golden State Makes Unsubstantiated Claim at Last Week’s Republican PBS Debate…
At last Thursday’s Republican Debate — the one which the four Republican front-runners refused to attend — sponsored by PBS and hosted by (egad!) African-American broadcaster, Tavis Smiley, the question of Photo ID restrictions on voters was raised by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Cynthia Tucker.
California Rep. Duncan Hunter’s answer was interesting. And it’s no small matter given that attempts to disenfranchise Democratic-leaning voters seems to be Strategy #1 (once again, but more so than ever) for the desperate GOP in 2008.
Hunter’s imaginative answer to Tucker’s question: “We have right now a real danger of people that are illegally in the country being rounded up, herded into the polls, we’ve seen that in California, voting illegally. That disenfranchises everybody in that community.”
Really? Living out here in the Golden State, we hadn’t heard of that one. And we do follow these issues fairly closely. So we checked with Hunter’s campaign to find out if they could offer any examples of such illegal votes from herded aliens in our state…

Obama Blocks Vote on Von Spakovsky in Senate!
Stops Harry Reid’s ‘Deal’ to Move Forward with GOP ‘Voter Fraud’ Zealot’s FEC Nomination…
A Democrat does the right thing for a change! What are the odds these days? And will it hold?
Senator and Presidential Candidate Barack Obama (D-IL), had recently (and correctly) called on Bush to send up an “acceptable” nominee to the Federal Election Commission (FEC), instead of the anti-Democracy, anti-voter villain Hans von Spakovsky.
Bush didn’t. Harry Reid then shamefully made a “deal” with Republicans to slide the evil von Spakovsy through, and Obama — thankfully — blocked it!…
