Just saw an awful commercial for the PA Voter ID thing....making it seem like it was your duty to show your photo ID...jesus

While I oppose voter ID laws because its intention to suppress certain voters, I always whip out my driver's license to the elderly folk manning the polls just to speed things along so I can get into the booth. But don't you have to provide a valid ID to register to vote? In the three municipalities I've lived in, I went straight to the registrar to register to vote but I don't remember if I had to show proof of ID each time.

Mitt apparently had a close relative who died as a result of an illegal abortion in 1963. I feel like that makes his flip-flopping on the issue 400% more douchey.

Especially watching this video of him justify his pro-choice stance.

Speaking of Voter ID, I wonder if there will be any effect of first time voters who now think that they do not need an ID to vote.

first time voters = young voters... those who were a driving factor for Obama in 2008 and those who tend to vote Democrat.

That sounds like me! I meant more in terms of the amount of first-time voters in PA hearing about the voter ID law being overturned, not bringing an ID to vote and if that will have any significant effect on votes. I'm guessing that it won't really have much effect.

Vote counting company Hart Intercivic, whose machines have famously failed in the past, is tied to Mitt Romney and Bain Capital.

If anyone is in the mood to feel nostalgic and/or depressed about past relationships, the new Killers album is perfect.

Quote:
Spent the summer, just laying out in the sun
Time seems to move so slow
When you're taking it as it comes
Maybe we were just too young

Your body was tanned and your hair was long
You showed me your smile and my cares were gone
Falling in love filled my soul with fright
You said "Come on babe, it'll be alright"
I must have been a fool to the bitter end
Now I hold on to hope to have you back again
I'd bargain and I'd fight

But there's another world
We're living in
Tonight

Don't want your picture
On my cell phone
I want you here with me
I don't want your memory
In my head now
I want you here with me

Well I saw you in a restaurant
The other day
And instead of walking towards you
I ran away
And I'll keep on waiting for you
Till you'll come around
Come around and say

Don't want your picture
On my cell phone
I want you here with me
Don't need those memories
In my head now
I want you here with me
