Stupid Platitude From Burke

SCOTUS' extremely bad habit of sticking its nose into States' business continued apace when it halted implementation of the Voter ID law in Wisconsin.

Thus the Burke campaign's Stupid Platitude moment:

Walker's opponent, Democrat Mary Burke, has opposed the legislation.

"Regardless of your politics, we can all agree that the greater the level of participation in elections, the better it is for our state," said Burke spokesman Joe Zepecki.

That is one of those statements which sounds really good, until one thinks for 5 seconds. There is no correlation between 'voter participation' and 'the health of the State.'  None.  There is also no correlation between the number of ZIP Codes in Wisconsin and the depth of Lake Michigan.

It's a category error--not that any Leftist would understand that distinction.
