It's Only Illegal When the Wrong Side Benefits

From Brad Blog, we have Unsealed Ballot Bags in WI Recall's State Senate 'Recount' Suggest Fraud, Charge Republicans.

Seems as how the Republicans are all up in arms, sure that there is vote fraud, because there are a number of irregularities in a Wisconsin election.

There's a funny thing about this, though. Last year, in a Wisconsin election, many of the same irregularities occurred. The Republican authorities argued that those irregularities meant nothing; just irrelevant details.

I guess whether there are really irregularities or not, depends on whether or not the Republicans are winning:

  • When winning: "See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil!"
  • When losing: "Ka-BLOOEY!!!"

Once upon a time, there was a principle in this country that the law was the law, no matter who was winning or losing. Now it depends on which party is winning or losing.

Is that a good thing?
