  [per-fuhngk-tuh-ree] adjective
performed merely as a routine duty; hasty and superficial: perfunctory courtesy.
lacking interest, care, or enthusiasm; indifferent or apathetic.

The Republicans in the NC General Assembly yesterday held a hearing about voter photo ID in the House Elections Committee. "The strong majority of speakers," according to the News & Record, were opposed to the planned bill, while the minority continued to harp about imaginary fraud committed by imaginary persons.

Will Huntsberry in The Independent called it a "perfunctory" hearing, and it was. They don't hear anything but their own cherished myths. They're going to do precisely what they wish to do, reality, common sense, and sanity be damned! And -- oh, yeah -- voters' rights be damned too!
