In another perfect example of Republican misdirection aimed at keeping voters looking away from their deceptions, there's the constant harangue over in-person voter fraud, which has led to laws whose real purpose is to keep Democratic voters from being able to vote. (Happily, one such was just declared to be in violation of what's left of the Civil Rights Act.

In general elections, it has favored Republican candidates over Democrats, even when the demographics of the precincts in question suggested that the opposite should have been true...
These guys are evil geniuses, I'll give them that.
