Meet Pennsylvania's Robert Simpson, the latest robed Banana Republican to reduce this nation's rule of law to brute partisan power, Machiavellian skulduggery, and a Hobbesian state of nature.
In his 70-page opinion, Simpson said the plaintiffs "did an excellent job of 'putting a face' to those burdened by the voter ID requirement," but he said he didn't have the luxury of deciding the case based on sympathy. Rather, he said he believed that state officials and agencies were actively resolving problems with the law and that they would carry it out in a "nonpartisan, even-handed manner."
Yes indeed. That's the manner in which most partisan, biased laws are carried out. You know, like the ones covered under Plessy v. Ferguson, which though considered "burdensome" by the fastidiously sympathetic, were in fact ruggedly "even-handed."
