Vindication!

Yes, the fact that a bunch of James O’Keefe’s conservative dickheads attempted to commit voter fraud surely proves that we have an urgently pressing need to disenfranchise minorities and poor people.

Actually, perhaps we are misreading O’Keefe’s stunt as whistleblowing theater rather than a threat: i.e., If you don’t start requiring photo IDs at the polls, then my right-wing friends and I are going to take advantage and start stealing elections from right under your noses until you make us stop.

Corey Robin In A Nutshell

“Hey conservatives, what are you reacting against?”  “Whaddaya got?”

According to Robin, conservatism’s only consistent guiding principle is that power must remain concentrated in the hands of elites at the expense of everyone else.  That sounds pretty accurate to me.
