Speaking of which

Here's how bad the GOP wants to secure "temporary" relevance in favor of becoming a historical footnote.

Just two hours after the Supreme Court reasoned that discrimination is not rampant enough in Southern states to warrant restrictions under the Voting Rights Act, Texas is already advancing a voter ID law and a redistricting map blocked last year for discriminating against black and Latino residents. Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott issued a statement declaring that both measures may go into effect immediately, now that there is no law stopping them from discriminating against minorities.
I guess you can go next to Orville Faubus and Lester Maddox in the history books, asshole.

I think Molly Ivins died just in time, because this probably would have killed her.

I agree, Montag. But I betcha she could have predicted it.
