What a difference a year (and an election) makes

Some of you may recall this enraged rant last year on the occasion of Katherine Harr… er, Ken Blackwell’s last gasp of treason, when for the first time in my life I had my voting qualifications questioned.

Today I get a postage paid card in the mail asking me to please confirm my current address and reminding me that “If this card is not returned and you do not vote by the 2011 general election, your name may be removed from the voter registration list.”

Let me repeat that, with appropriate emphasis: “If this card is not returned and you do not vote by the 2011 general election, your name MAY be removed from the voter registration list.”

What a breath of fresh air from the Katherine Harr… er, Ken Blackwell years, when the policy was “If you live in a majority Democratic district, good fucking luck. We don’t need a reason and we don’t need to give you warning, and you’ll be lucky to have your ballot counted if you even get to cast one.”

Thank you, Jennifer Brunner.

Fuck you one last time, sideways and without lube, Ken Blackwell.

    Kind of interesting when you think about it. That postcard would really only fool the profoundly stupid, and the profoundly stupid tend to vote for the GOP.

    I was thinking, he should have a morningstar dildo shoved up his ass. But your way works too.

    In other words, the current administration is actually following the law, which says they can’t remove you unless you haven’t voted in at least 4 years.

    Amazingly, my precinct didn’t have that problem. But Clintonville is a different animal – they probably knew we would rip them to shreds if they tried it.
