really, John McCain? Really?

These bully rightists playing the 'voter fraud' card ... I mean, didn't we pass the Civil Rights Bill of 1964 to get rid of that sort of profiling? How are these new hoops & balance beams at all different from the poll taxes & citizenship tests of the Jim Crow South, aside from said tactics being aimed at a broader group of citizens? It's already disheartening to hear these folks say things like, "my opponent is fixated on the past (see: Sarah Palin in the VP debate)," but when you take into account their willingness to embrace the unamerican, (albeit unpatriotic) practices of the past, such statements become increasingly frightening.
