Under the Dome

Phyllis Schlafly embraces N.C. voter law

National conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly cheered the state new law limiting the early voting period because the Obama campaign used early voting to its advantage.

In a WND column published today, Schlafly wrote: "The reduction in the number of days allowed for early voting is particularly important because early voting plays a major role in Obama’s ground game. The Democrats carried most states that allow many days of early voting, and Obama’s national field director admitted, shortly before last year’s election, that “early voting is giving us a solid lead in the battleground states that will decide this election.”

Schlafy also praises stricter abortion clinic regulations, the end to teacher tenure, the new cursive writing requirement, and the cut to unemployment benefits.

Didn't she get the memo?

Oops! I thought the voting restrictions imposed on the Republican watch were supposed to be about controlling fraud, not partisan payback.
That's one of the problems for the Republicans in positioning themselves as the party of stupid. There'll always be a few prominent figures in the party who are too stupid, or too vested in pandering to the stupid (Ms. Schlafly has enjoyed a reasonably lucrative career of saying extremely stupid things for more than 40 years), to stay on script. They can't stop themselves from blurting out the ugly truths the party''s political spinners are trying so hard to obscure.
