As a voter in the great state of
I'm talking about voting in the Florida primary you gutter minds, you.
And I was disenfranchised!
A very large, southern, white, Christian, male was disenfranchised!
They asked me for a picture ID before I was allowed to vote.
Where were the ACLU lawyers that are supposed to be lurking at each and every polling place in America on every voting day?
What if I happened to have been so poor that I couldn't have paid the ten bucks or whatever to have at least a picture ID made at the drivers license place?
Seriously. Isn't that what all the ruckus is about when people try to stop voter fraud by requiring the showing of a picture ID of some sort? That this somehow disenfranchises the poor, and minorities?
Well, if they can afford a carton of cigarrettes or a jug of wine, they could go to their local DMV and at least have a picture ID made, right?
But now I know how it feels to be all disenfranchised against, or, well, however you'd say that.
And I'm still buzzing from the rush of righteous indignation of being asked such a demeaning thing as to prove that I was who I said I was by showing a picture ID.
Because if there's one thing that's worse than actually seeing my face in person, it's seeing a picture of said mug. I don't photograph well.
Since I'm still fired up, I think I'll go find a protest march or something to march in.
Anybody seen Cindy Sheehan lately?
