Scarborough's Surprising Support For Voter ID Laws

Joe Scarborough is frequently panned in these parts for his propensity to pummel his presumably fellow Republicans.  So it's noteworthy when the Morning Joe host goes after the left for a change.

It happened on today's show, when Scarborough defended voter ID laws, saying most Americans don't think it's racist to require a photo ID when you show up to vote. and scalding the left for trying fit to politicians in North Carolina and Texas with symbolic KKK hoods.   Scarborough even forced a clearly reluctant Mike Allen of Politico to ultimately acknowledge his point.  View the video after the jump.



I'll be back with the transcript. In the meantime, enjoy this too-rare point of light from Scarborough.
