Saturday quick hits

-- Al Sharpton thinks voter ID laws are a "poll tax." (The 24th Amendment abolished poll taxes fifty years ago.)

Even while acknowledging that the IDs are generally issued by states for free, Sharpton cited Attorney General Eric Holder and Georgia Democratic Rep. John Lewis in complaining that simply having to travel to obtain the free ID amounts to a tax.

We've been through this sort of bullsh** before. WTF is next -- a stamp on an envelope to get a voter registration form is a "poll tax?" Why yes, as a matter of fact according to Florida Rep. Alcee Hastings. Unfortunately for both Hastings and Sharpton, even the left-leaning PolitiFact (see last link) rates as "mostly false" that voter ID laws amount to a poll tax.

Elsewhere, race-obsessed Attorney General Eric Holder spoke out (again) against voter ID laws. “They’ve come up with a remedy in search of a problem,” Holder told MSNBC on Friday. “I think it is being used in too many instances to depress the vote of particular groups of people ..." He also said that in a "vacuum" he would support such laws ... Cheeyeah, sort of like he would support school disciplinary measures "in a vacuum," eh? Puh-lease.

-- New York City's new [communist] mayor, Bill De Blasio, agrees with the recent "F*** you, Righties" sentiments of New York Governor Andy Cuomo. Is that surprising??

-- Did I mention Eric Holder already? Well, he is sticking by his "nation of cowards when it comes to race" comment from 2009. “Certain subjects are off-limits and that to explore them risks at best embarrassment, and at worst, the questioning of one’s character,” he said. He's certainly right about that -- but not in the way he thinks.

-- The MSM keeps George Zimmerman in the news, this time because George -- gasp!! -- did a painting based on an AP photograph. The photog is threatening to sue Zimmerman. This is big news, folks.

-- Lastly, io9 has a list of Marvel comics the company probably wish they'd never had published. Included are "winners" we've covered previously like U.S. 1 and NFL Superpro.

Voter ID has nothing to do with poll taxes. That's nothing but hyperbole from the race hustlers. Voter ID is just common sense. Plus, it's not hard to get. Just go to your county courthouse. It's simple, folks.

Not surprising that an admitted socialist like deBlasio would agree with Cuomo. As a pro-life conservative, I'd have to say that because of those two idiots, New York is not on my list of places to visit. I was there in 2007 and I don't plan on going back now.

And they're still going after Zimmerman? That trial ended with his acquittal last summer. I suppose the MSM moonbats will beat that dead horse for all they think it's worth.

LOL: U.S. #1 and NFL Superhero are bad. Really bad. So is Marville; did you ever read that one?

" Holder told MSNBC on Friday. “I think it is being used in too many instances to depress the vote of particular groups of people ..." "

Holder's correct. Voter ID's ARE being used to depress the vote of "particular groups of people"....the illegals', the dead and the felons. The only reason NOT to have voter ID is because one believes they have a net gain in fraud.

I don't plan on visiting NYC any time soon with DeBlasio at the helm, that's for sure, Carl.

And never read MARVILLE. Heard it was beyond atrocious.

Hoagie: Exactly right. Holder's bigotry of low expectations is very insulting. But that's how racial bean counters operate. It's the ONLY way they can operate.

Hube: Neither do I. I have no plans of going to NYC while DeBlasio is mayor. Or New York while Cuomo is in power, either.

As for Marville, it IS beyond atrocious. One of the worst things that company has ever churned out.
