2010 may go down as a turning point in American politics, but old habits are hard to break, including, apparently, the belief from some on the right that widespread voter fraud could swing key races to the Democrats. On MSNBC last night, Keith Olbermann became the latest voice on the left to dismiss (and in the process perpetuate) these fears.

"All you need to know about so-called anti-voter fraud efforts," opined Olbermann, "is that they are anti-voter."

We're not entirely sure the people behind these efforts would disagree with Olbermann's assessment. They are anti-voter. Anti-illegal voter. How they carry out this agenda is where things get murky.
