Smellin’ Like A Felon

imageI swear to God, whoever taught Glenn Reynolds words beyond “heh” and “indeed” should be tried for crimes against those of us with functional brains.

BUT VOTER FRAUD IS A MYTH: A newspaper investigation finds more than 30,000 felons who should have been stripped of their right to vote are still registered in Florida.

The link shows that felons are simply still registered from prior, legal, non-fraudulent registration – not that they registered against state law after they were freed or that anyone submitted false registrations on their behalf. The Perfesser has done the voter fraud myth one better: he’s managed to convert a bureaucratic error in which no fraudulent activity has taken place into an act of fraud. Fraud no longer requires the act of one person or group intended to deceive another, it simply requires a record keeper to not keep up with records. Meaning, of course, that you’re committing fraud when your change of address form isn’t processed by the DMV or when a bank mistakenly places a deposit in your account.

How Glenn Reynolds eats without stabbing himself in the eye with a fork, I do not know. My guess is either he uses those nice soft plastic forks with barnyard animals on the end, or his diet is restricted to finger foods and chewable vitamins.
