When South Carolina legislator Alan Clemmons saw an email comparing poor and black voters to "bees going after a watermelon" - and answered "Amen!" - he didn't just tell the world how stupid he is. He didn't just let on that he's a bigot. He didn't just reinforce all the old stereotypes of racist white Southerners (as if THAT needed any more reinforcing! More on that later - whew!). Clemmons also let the cat out of the bag about what these voter ID laws are really all about: keeping poor folks from voting.
