A federal judge said Wednesday he would permanently remove harsh restrictions on third-party voter registration groups that have handicapped registration efforts in Florida this year. U.S. District Judge Robert L. Hinkle said he would grant a motion to permanently remove the restrictions once he receives confirmation that a federal appeals court has dismissed the case (the state of Florida has agreed to dismiss their appeal).
I think there’s a special place in hell for the people like Little Ricky who are so willing to lie through their teeth to do “God’s work.”

As you may have noticed, the right-wing fringe always telegraphs their plans in advance. It’s just that they’re so extreme, most voters don’t believe them:
TAMPA, Fla. — Republicans emphatically approved a toughly worded party platform at their national convention Tuesday that would ban all abortions and gay marriages, reshape Medicare into a voucher-like program and cut taxes to energize the economy and create jobs.
The document opens by warning that while the American Dream has long been of equal opportunity for everyone, “Today that American Dream is at risk.” It pledges that the GOP will “begin anew, with profound changes in the way government operates; the way it budgets, taxes and regulates.”
Since they seem to have a distinct liberal bias, of course.
Chris Christie mentioned Romney somewhere near the end of his lengthy speech. “I, I, I.”
