“It’s that time of year when politicians everywhere live on a food stamp budget for a week and then whine and moan about how hard it was. Guess what?

“When Vladimir Putin learned about our Republicans legislating voter fraud laws in numerous states it brought a tear to his eye, because he didn’t think of it first. His idea was to stuff the ballot box. In the 21st century U-S-of-A, you unstuff the opposition’s ballot box with sleazy legislation.”
