There's voter suppression and there's duopoly voter suppression

With federal court rulings striking down voter ID laws in North Carolina and Texas, and putting some dings, at least, on voting laws in Ohio and Wisconsin, it's a good time to talk about voter suppression, right?

Liberal activist groups like People for the American Way certainly think it's a good time to talk about it as a fundraiser. My email inbox has been hit by it and others.

But, there's a dirty little secret.

PFAW may truly care about minority voters who can't vote Democrat.

But, it doesn't care at all about voters of any color who can't vote Green (or Libertarian).

But the likes of Black Agenda Report, discussing the Green vice presidential candidacy of Ajamu Baraka, has their number.
