"BS IS Called" made no such assertions. There is no need to follow the thread in it's entirety.
Follow the thread, dullard. It goes originally to General Lee.

And now we come to the final conclusion: it seems that Red states voted for the draft dodger, and Blue states voted for Obama.

I haven't changed my position a fraction of an inch.

Let's first start by agreeing you had your head up your azz, that (as I said) the original statement was made by General Lee, not by BS.

And General Lee has himself acknowledge HALF of what he said was entirely wrong, and as I (et al.) picked apart the second half of his statement, it is *YOU* that find yourselves rewording what Lee said.

The bottom line, genius, is the draft dodger won in states that are RED without regard to whether or not there was photo ID; the photo is and was and has always been a red herring.

There would be a closer association to the states that draft dodger won with the KKK than the status of the photo ID...

General Lee made no such assertion, as you just stated. "BS" made no such assertion, as you stated in post 484. In fact, "red state, blue state", is not at issue at all, except for you trying to make it one.

Hey, moo-ron, the people whose IQ reach above the temperature of the inside of their refrigerator, the connection between those few states that did have photo ID requirements to vote and the results of the election are able to draw a line between the fact that the states that did in 2012 require a photo ID were ALL RED states and the photo ID is a red herring.

That statement has nothing to do with any assertion by me of Red and Blue states, as you have stated, incorrectly, again.

See how I manage to provide an EXACT quote (of course, a quote is exact...) and how you can't find any 'misquote' or misattribution by me of you anywhere?

The way it works, Bobby: I can make my own conclusions, I do not have to confine myself to what you say.

I am able to conclude- like anyone who has any sense- that the reason why (e.g.) Georgia voted for your draft dodger had nothing to do with the photo it required to vote and everything to do with the FACT that it is a RED state.

Do you want to give it another shot?

You can make your own conclusions, but they are just that, yours. That does not mean they are reasonable, or factual.

Ummmm yeah...

So we are back to what I quoted you was an EXACT quote.

And that I did not attribute to you anything you did not say.

Anything else?

PS: They are, indeed, factual and that is why you are here sputtering about things you say I said I did not say.

Happy to see you refute my assertion: that (specially Georgia) voted for draft dodger because it is a RED state, not because it had or did not have a requirement for photo ID to vote.
