Beyond the Pale

Look at the bile coming from Matthew Vadum, whom I recently tagged as one of the newest members of the fraudulent fraud squad.

Registering the Poor to Vote is Un-American

Why are left-wing activist groups so keen on registering the poor to vote?

Because they know the poor can be counted on to vote themselves more benefits by electing redistributionist politicians.  Welfare recipients are particularly open to demagoguery and bribery.

Registering them to vote is like handing out burglary tools to criminals.  It is profoundly antisocial and un-American to empower the nonproductive segments of the population to destroy the country — which is precisely why Barack Obama zealously supports registering welfare recipients to vote.

Wow.  Deny the right to vote the poor because they might vote in their self-interest.  I don’t know something more “un-American” these days than claiming that wealth should be a valid criterion for deciding who should get the right to vote.

Back after I puke.

Update:  Vadum tweets a reply: “An observation from @rickhasen a very stupid election law professor and useful idiot for ACORN http://j.mp/oVGIxJ #SubversionInc #tcot #p2″

Guess I hit a nerve.

UPDATE 2: Valum backpedals and I reply.
