Where is the Damn Department of Justice?
Where the hell is the Department of Justice these days? Is Obama so afraid of being president while black that he’s cutting Democrats’ throats forever?
Hundreds of thousands of potential voters here were left scramblingin the wake of Pennsylvania’s voter ID law — enough to prompt speculation as to whether the law could change the outcome of the election in November.
But one thing is clear: The law is already having a dramatic effect on how the election is being waged.
Democrats and their allies, who vehemently oppose the voter ID legislation, are still pinning their hopes on legal challenges to the law. But if the law survives, political organizers in Pennsylvania will have to alter their outreach plans to include identifying, contacting and getting proper identifications for thousands of voters.
Hello. This exists:
The Voting Rights Act of 1965 (42 U.S.C. §§ 1973–1973aa-6) is a landmark piece of national legislation in the United States that outlawed discriminatory voting practices that had been responsible for the widespread disenfranchisement of African Americans in the U.S.
I have a bad feeling, a really, really bad feeling that a tragic vortex, a perfect storm of events is happening — namely a weak, timid Obama presidency which could easily be the last time Democrats (such as they are) have any real power, and a strong Republican party (not to mention Citizens United) — are converging to spell the end to a whole lot of things we take for granted around here.
