Back in July 2012, Wisconsin GOP Senator Glenn Grothman said that Voter I.D. laws would help Mitt Romney in a close race.

Romney lost. But Grothman wasn't the only one who said that out loud. Remember this? Pennsylvania House Majority Leader Mike Turzai (R), June 2012:

It is now July 17, 2013, and Think Progress has video of Pennsylvania’s GOP Chairman Rob Gleason telling Pennsylvania Cable Network earlier this week, the party “cut Obama by 5 percent” in 2012 and “probably Voter ID had helped a bit in that.”

Despite what Republican-run states have been trying to do to disenfranchise voters, there is virtually no voter fraud in America, and the laws target mainly Democratic voters. I've written about this over and over again.

But now that the Voting Rights Act has been gutted, there is an even more concerted GOP effort to suppress the vote, and all those "reinvented, reachy-outy" Republicans can't wait to "help a bit."

Two funniest items o' the day, via Rick Perry and McDonald's

laughter is best medicine laugh

Laughter is the best medicine. Well, not quite as beneficial as diving into a trough of wine, but almost.

Funny Item Number One, via Taegan:

Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) said that he will visit Israel in October, "a move that signals to the political world that he is seriously considering making another presidential run in 2016," the Washington Times reports.

Said Perry: "We will be going to Israel to bring together Arabs, Christian and Jews in an educational forum."

Of course, that was unintentionally funny. I mean, really... Rick Perry uttering the words "educational forum" out loud? And crediting himself for anything that could possibly teach anyone anything? It's surprising that he even remembered all three: Arabs, Christians, and... um... ummm... oh yeah, Jews!

He was actually Oopsless. Now that's a gen-yew-wine Texas rib-tickler.

Item Number Two is a video that is as funny as it is informative. McBudgeting:

Yes, McDonald's agrees: $15 per hour is what their employees need!

Via Low Pay is Not Okay:

McDonald’s built a web site to “help” their employees make a budget. It’s… unbelievable.

Press play and share far and wide.

Oh those Government Bureaucrats... they're incompetent when it comes to running the country, but they can handle a multi-layered, convoluted conspiracy without batting an eye.
