OK

The current lie being propagated by the rightwing about the Wisconsin recall election, as most here know, claims that some pro-Democratic unions have organized massive voter fraud by busing in hundreds or thousands of Michigan Democrats to vote in the WI election. Fox Nation is promoting the hoax, and it's unbelievably stupid, as we might expect from our wingnut friends.  

Fox Nation has the transcript from some wingnut radio show, in which a guy who calls himself "Mike" performs the scam.  

CALLER MIKE:

I'm trying to be quiet... I'm actually on a bus. I'm from Michigan and I'm actually on a bus. Three other buses following us and we're on our way to Wisconsin. I'm not even a registered Democrat.

PLANTE:

...and what are you doin'? What are you going there for?

CALLER MIKE:

I'm gonna vote for Scott Walker...

PLANTE:

You're going to Michigan? You're going to Wisconsin from Michigan?

CALLER MIKE:

No, we're going to Wisconsin. We're from Michigan.

PLANTE:

Yes

CALLER MIKE:

It's four buses total.

PLANTE:

Now, wait a minute, now wait just a minute. You're going, you're on a bus. in a convoy of four buses. You left the Detroit area. The convoy of four buses is headed to Wisconsin to vote. Now who organized this little foray?

CALLER MIKE:

Chris, I'm not even sure. I just heard about it and I jumped on the bus. I'm talking low key cause' I guarantee that if these people knew my intentions..man I'd be killed.

PLANTE:

You're on a bus full of people going from Michigan to Wisconsin and you believe that most of the people on the bus..other than yourself..you believe that ALL of the people other than yourself are going there to vote for Tom Barrett

CALLER MIKE:

Most of them are Democrat..it's a Democratic union..its actually a Democratic union organized by Democrats. But I'm not goin on there to vote for the Democrat. I'm going on there to vote for Scott Walker. Once I heard about it I- I was thinking, hey..this is an opportunity to sabotage what they always do to Republicans.

PLANTE:

But you're all alone on this bus whispering into your cell phone

CALLER MIKE:

Well I dont know if theres other people with my intentions but I know most of these people..most of these people..their intentions are to go vote for Democrats. I mean I know why people vote for Democrats, man they give out all kinds of free stuff Chris!

PLANTE:

Okay and these four buses, do they have any obvious markings on them? Are they Greyhound buses? Are they marked in some way?

CALLER MIKE:

They're just charter buses

PLANTE:

They're just charter buses...

CALLER MIKE

They're big, black with gray lines on the side. Charter buses.

PLANTE:

Alright, what you're telling me is the Unions in Michigan have organized a bus convoy and you're riding in that bus convoy and they're bringing Michigan residents to Wisconsin in order to vote illegally for Tom Barrett?

[snip]

PLANTE:

And the unions are busing people in from Michigan to vote in Wisconsin and everybody knows that they're there to vote illegally?

CALLER MIKE:

That's the intention. That's exactly the intention. The election

PLANTE:

And have they told where you are going? Are you going to Milwaukee? Kenosha? Do you know where are you going?

CALLER MIKE:

I'm really not sure, I don't think we're going all the way to Milwaukee, I'm not sure we're going that far in.  But, I could find you what town and call you right back.

They seem too dumb to make it seem plausible.  4 buses with union-supported Democratic voters going to commit fraud in Wisconsin?  Not calling the cops, the election commission, GOP election observers?

You wingnuts suck and are stupid.
