Oh, Sweeeet! Those Michigan Republicans!

Another reason "Republican" has become synonymous with "Heartless Bastard" (from the Michigan Messenger):
"The chairman of the Republican Party in Macomb County Michigan, a key swing county in a key swing state, is planning to use a list of foreclosed homes to block people from voting in the upcoming election .... 'We will have a list of foreclosed homes and will make sure people aren't voting from those addresses,' [said] party chairman James Carabelli...." (HT: SR)

Because -- hey! -- people who lose their homes must be dumb, over-extended Democrats or at the very least black.

Extra added irony bonus for this:
[Republican presidential candidate John] McCain's regional headquarters [in Macomb] are housed in the office building of foreclosure specialists Trott & Trott. The firm's founder, David A. Trott, has given at least $23,000 to McCain's campaign and raised between $100,000 and $250,000 for the Republican nominee.

It's just too good ... to be able to suppress the vote and profit off human misery from the same location.
