Tonight Rachel Maddow Posed the Same Question Three Times in Three Sentences. Seriously.

Here is the question, from about 36 minutes into the Rachel Maddow Show:

"In terms of legal challenges to these new legal barriers to voting, is it the sort of thing where you just have to on paper say the ID's are free but it doesn't really matter if nobody can access them? Have the courts tended to look on issues like this as something where you just have to get it right on paper and it doesn't really matter how it works in practice? Or is the scrutiny of how it actually works in the real world, whether there is a real world effect on disenfranchising people?"
