One of the guests that Michelle Antoinette invited to tonight’s State of the Union speech will be there as a mascot for those persecuted minorities that evil white people want to stop from voting, the targets of GOP efforts to prevent non-existence “vote fraud,” solutions in search of a problem. That’s what Chris Matthews and Rev. Al Sharpton say. I’m sure that they will get thrills up their legs reading about Desiline Victor. From Politico:
A determined Florida centenarian who had to make two trips and wait several hours to vote for President Barack Obama last fall will sit with first lady Michelle Obama during Tuesday’s State of the Union. Her resolve became a symbol of early voting obstacles in the presidential election.
Desiline Victor, 102, of Miami, endured a weather-delayed flight to Washington on Monday in order to get to town for Obama’s address. She will be among the guests seated with Mrs. Obama, an opportunity she called “a beautiful thing.”
Wow, how terrible! It’s too bad that she didn’t live in Ohio. She could have voted for her messiah twice, at least.
