Fired US attorneys didn't prosecute Dem voter fraud?

From the Right Wing Nut House:
As I said, it’s too late – too late for the facts to catch up with the hysteria. The New York Times is pooh-poohing the idea that some of the USA’s were fired for not aggressively going after voting fraud cases. To the Times, voter fraud is just not important enough an issue to remove a US Attorney:
In its fumbling attempts to explain the purge of United States attorneys, the Bush administration has argued that the fired prosecutors were not aggressive enough about addressing voter fraud. It is a phony argument; there is no evidence that any of them ignored real instances of voter fraud. But more than that, it is a window on what may be a major reason for some of the firings.

In partisan Republican circles, the pursuit of voter fraud is code for suppressing the votes of minorities and poor people. By resisting pressure to crack down on “fraud,” the fired United States attorneys actually appear to have been standing up for the integrity of the election system.

I guess thousands of fake voter registration forms submitted by the highly partisan ACORN as well as other frauds perpetrated by the usual suspects at the AFL-CIO, Moveon, and other liberal advocacy groups should be allowed into the system – at least according to the Times. We wouldn’t want to disturb the moronic notion that partisan Republicans use “code” to differentiate between real people and sock puppets who would be capable of voting 5, 10, or 20 times at different polling stations. Democrats never perpetrate these kinds of frauds – just ask the dead people in any Chicago cemetery and they’ll swear on their graves that such shenanigans never take place.

That's right, friends: according to the Old Gray Hag, asking dead people not to vote and asking that living people only vote once in their respective jurisdictions is "code for suppressing the votes of minorities and poor people"! Little did I know that minorities and poor folks were entitled to vote frequently and in the wrong locations, and even posthumously. My bad.

Seriously, only the left would be so stupid as to preposterously claim that refusing to prosecute voter fraud is "standing up for the integrity of the election system"! It seems that whenever the left wins an election, it is 100% of the time won fair and square, yet when the right wins an election, it is 100% of the time the result of vote fraud. Funny how that works.
