Kerry's at it again

Clearly, the problems about which Kerry complains will magically vanish once those felons have the vote:

Many voters in last year's presidential election were denied access to the polls through trickery and intimidation, former Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry told a voters' group Sunday. 'Last year too many people were denied their right to vote, too many who tried to vote were intimidated,' the Massachusetts senator said at an event sponsored by the state League of Women Voters. 'There is no magic wand. No one person is going to stand up and suddenly say it's going to change tomorrow. You have to do that,' he said. Kerry supporters have charged that voting irregularities in largely Democratic areas made it difficult for voters to cast ballots in the November election. A lawsuit in Ohio cited long lines and a shortage of voting machines in predominantly minority neighborhoods, but the Ohio Supreme Court dismissed the suit. Kerry also cited examples Sunday of how people were duped into not voting. 'Leaflets are handed out saying Democrats vote on Wednesday, Republicans vote on Tuesday. People are told in telephone calls that if you've ever had a parking ticket, you're not allowed to vote,' he said.
He ought to be ashamed of himself, but I guess that's asking too much. UPDATE: Unsurprisingly, the guys at Power Line have a great take on Kerry's whining.
