Tancredo prepares to address the teabaggers
-Headline of the day-
"Tancredo says Obama won because we lack a 'literacy test before people can vote in this country.'"
A racist lunatic, former Republican congress critter, and presidential hopeful for about a minute in 2009, Tom Tancredo is pretty damned near perfect to speak at the National Tea Party convention. Teabaggers love that hate stuff.
Tom said that Obama was a Socialist monster and that we wouldn't have this problem if only smart people were allowed to vote. "[W]e do not have a civics, literary test before people can vote in this country," he said.
Yeah, damned Voting Rights Act...
Anyway, the teabagers ate this stuff up. Let's take a look at who a literacy test would likely weed out (click for larger images, where available):

"Oliver North: After gays allowed into military, pedophiles will follow."
Yeah, because there are so many children in the military. I didn't think it was possible, but if you use an argument against same sex marriage in another context, it actually gets stupider. (Raw Story)
