there he goes again

Once again, Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell is doing his damndest to suppress the vote in Ohio, this time thru draconian new rules on voter registration that practically criminalizes routine efforts to register new voters. As an Ohio Dem Party spokesman Brian Rothenberg put it, "It appears that Ken Blackwell finally figured out how to deal with long lines on Election Day. He's just trying to outright deny people the right to vote now."

Just like in 2004. In the words of Ronald Reagan, Blackwell "there you go again."

Oh, an added element -- Blackwell is running for Governor.

So remember -- Republicans really don't want people to vote. And they will take great steps to prevent those demographically suspected of being Democrats from voting too easily.
