Let’s play: Ironic? Or not? (part vi)

The story:

Panel Reaches Deal On Minn. Voter ID Bill

A proposed constitutional amendment requiring Minnesota voters to present photo identification at polling places is on the cusp of reaching November’s ballot.

A House-Senate conference committee signed off Monday night on an agreement putting the question before voters. It heads back to the two chambers where passage is virtually certain.

It’s ironic, see, because Minnesota voters won’t have to present I.D. while voting on whether they will have to present I.D.

It’s also ironic, because opponents will be going all-out to commit voter fraud in order to preserve their ability to commit voter fraud.

Hm. Those may not meet a strict definition of irony. Not sure.

And it’s ironic because…photo I.D.? In Minnesota? Minnesotans all look alike, don’t’cha know, eh. They’re just paler, blander, boring versions of Wisconsinites, except without the great taste in food and beer and football teams. There’s no point to requiring a photo I.D. in Minnesota.

    You’ve got the Germans, the Swedes, the Norwegians, the Hmong, the Irish, and god help us, Finnish in Minnesota. There’s some diversity.

    Oh, and Summit>Miller.
