If ever the UN was a bigger joke ...

... it'd be hard to remember. This time, at the behest of the NAACP, the UN is going to investigate -- wait for it -- US voter ID laws.

The United Nations Human Rights Council is investigating the issue of American election laws at its gathering on minority rights in Geneva, Switzerland. This, despite the fact that some members of the council have only in the past several years allowed women to vote, and one member, Saudi Arabia, still bars women from the voting booth completely.

Officials from the NAACP are presenting their case against U.S. voter ID laws, arguing to the international diplomats that the requirements disenfranchise voters and suppress the minority vote.

Yep. Countries like Cuba, China, Russia, North Korea.

Y'know, Mitt Romney would be a fool not to bang on this issue. 70-some percent of the American public supports voter ID, and a big reason for this is because folks just don't see the big deal -- especially when you need to show ID for so many other damn things like buying alcohol, getting a prescription filled, entering the Dept. of Justice, and getting on a plane. The latter being what the members of the NAACP will have to do when they jet off to Geneva.
