GOP Fears Census Scare Tactics May Backfire. Karl Rove to the Rescue. (Video)
People in Republican areas, like Texas, are not mailing in their census forms. I think we can thank Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) and her fellow conspiracy theorists for demonizing the census as an Unconstitutional Evil Socialist Big Government Plot to take away guns and lock up right-wingers in Japanese internment camps. Or something like that.
Suddenly it's dawned on Republicans that a low census participation by Republicans equates to fewer GOP seats in Congress and state legislatures. Cue Karl Rove going on tv and pleading for folks to turn in their census forms.
