If These Were Republicans, This Would Be CNN’s Lead Story

Has anybody heard from those guarantors of voting rights and overseers of fair ballot practices, the Democrats, over this act of disenfranchisement?

Tossing aside a plea agreement that called for probation, Milwaukee County Circuit Judge Michael B. Brennan sentenced four Democratic Party workers to jail Wednesday for slashing tires on 25 vans rented by Republicans to take voters to polls for the 2004 presidential election.

Calling the vandalism more than harmless hijinks, Brennan admonished the men, including the sons of two prominent Milwaukee politicians, for disenfranchising voters.

This is an affront to our rights as Americans, isn’t it Reverend Jackson? … Reverend? Anybody seen Jesse?
