  •  The real question isn't (5+ / 0-)

    whether the South is more racist than the rest of the country. Pathetic dodge by Roberts, but he misses the point.

    Rather, the question is why we don't have a national legal framework to guarantee a right to vote to all Americans along with the instruments to guarantee that every vote gets counted. Republicans tried to cook the books far beyond the old confederacy in 2012, and there's no reason to think they'll do otherwise in 2014.

    I'm not all that optimistic that the amoral Scalia court will uphold the VRA, not after the racial entitlement swine fart, but there is more than one way to secure justice.

    Fuck me, it's a leprechaun.
