Critics Must Think Michigan Voters (And Especially Democrats) Are Dumber Than Rocks

That can be the only reason for this specious objection:

Livingston Daily: Critics say citizenship question will confuse voters

Most Michigan voters — but not those in Livingston County — will have to affirm their U.S. citizenship when filling out an application for a ballot in next week's August primary and the November presidential elections despite Gov. Rick Snyder's veto of the legislation calling for the citizen check box in early July.

While Department of State officials believe asking prospective voters to check "yes" or "no" to the question "Are you a United States citizen?" helps clean up the voting process, critics say it's duplicative and confusing to voters.

Look, if you're confused and can't figure out how to check a yes or no box as to whether or not you're a US Citizen when you go to vote, you may want to check if you're still breathing.

Then again, we know the critics are worried about Democrat voters, who supposedly aren't the sharpest tools in the shed, especially considering that they vote Democrat. But, even I suspect that those poor dears who have yet to assume room temperature or below can figure out a simple yes/no check box.

Across the nation, state legislatures are passing laws that backers say will help fight voting fraud. Opponents say evidence of voter fraud is rare and that the laws are really attempts at voter suppression.

Of course, if you block any attempt to detect and prevent voter fraud, its pretty hard to have evidence of it now isn't it?
