    Who's in jail? Name 'em.

    Right. Nobody. But hey, it takes time, right? Well, what's been the punishment for illegal voter suppression schemes of the past? Nothing, that's what.

    It's all well and good that the courts have barred challengers are polling places in Ohio, but untold thousands of other voters are being targeted in other ways that the courts will never touch, unless we root it out and give them names.

    And even those who go to court will warrant no more mention in their community than a blurb in the local weekly that everyone will ignore, and then these cheaters will go back to selling your kids baseball cards in the corner shop, smiling at you as you pass by.

    And when 2008 comes around, do you think they'll think twice about doing this again?

    I'm glad we got this little victory in court, but do you realize why it was so easy to win? Because what the Republicans are doing has been illegal since forever and a day. And still, the fact that it was an open and shut case didn't stop a single one of them. Didn't give them a moment's pause.

    The fact that the law is on the books means nothing if you only suffer the "consequences," such as they are, after the polls close -- when it's too late.

    You think these people won't risk a little bad press to win the election?
