I listened to this five minute clip from Laura Ingraham’s show as she ranted against Hillary Clinton’s push for early voting and other measures that would make it easier for people to vote and was struck by how utterly vacuous it was. There isn’t a single substantive claim made anywhere in it.
I love her argument that you shouldn’t make it easier for people to vote because that just shows they’re lazy and we shouldn’t want them to vote if they won’t go to all the trouble to do it. Okay Laura, then how about we set up a Super Mario course between your house and the polling place? After all, if you aren’t willing to go through a difficult obstacle course to get to vote, why should we want you to vote? Oh wait, I bet that argument only applies to people who aren’t rich and white like you. My mistake.
