Everything is better in triplicate

Good sense has a way of assuming the fetal position whenever the Alabama Legislature is in session.

From the group that brought you a law to make it illegal to pass a law comes another favorite standby: legislation to remind you that something that's already illegal is, in fact, still illegal. This time, it's an argument between House Majority Leader Ken Guin, D-Carbon Hill, and Rep. Micky Hammon, R-Decatur, over who deserves the credit for a measure stating that illegal immigrants, who can't register to vote, can't vote. Because, you know, the law only allows registered voters to vote, and it would be illegal for anyone who can't register to vote to try to vote, just like it already says in our voter fraud statutes.

Yes, it passed the House. Why did you even ask?

But hey, look on the bright side: Every minute the Legislature spends passing laws that it's already passed is a minute that it's not doing anything even sillier.
