Paper? You Can't Get No Stinking Papers

The People's Republic of Wisconsin requires citizens to show a photo ID to vote.
Wisconsin voting line, perhaps.
  • To get a photo ID you need to provide a birth certificate. 
  • To get a birth certificate (according to the form) you need to provide a photo ID.
According to Wisconsin Commissar of State Security the instructions on the form need not be followed except, of course, when they must be followed. The goal is not to prevent people from voting but to prevent the "wrong people" from voting.

The definition of "wrong people" is simple - students, the elderly, liberals, and anyone who doesn't love Comrade Governor Scott Walker.

They ought to write a book about this. Maybe they could call it "Catch-22".

"That's some catch, that Catch-22," he observed.

"It's the best there is," Scott Walker agreed.
