Requiring photo ID for voting is called racist and discriminatory! For a Michelle Obama book signing event it's called mandatory!

Update: Article given a nod over at Weasel Zippers!

Is there something wrong with the Secret Service requiring a photo ID to get up close and personal to Michelle Obama at her book signing event June 12th?

Absolutely not as there is always a question of security for a member of the First Family!

"...Mrs. Obama will visit the downtown Barnes & Noble store located at 555 12 St. NW, at E St. On Friday, June 8th, those wishing to attend the event must purchase a copy of the First Lady's book at the location (for $19.20) and leave it at the store, according to the employee. At the same time, customers must also submit their social security number and show an official photo ID (driver's license, passport) to a Secret Service agent, and they will be issued a wristband to attend the First Lady's event on June 12..."

Along that same line of reasoning why is there anything wrong with requiring photo ID for an even more important privilege than getting a book signed by the First Lady, that of voting in U.S. elections?

The answer is of course that there isn't!
