NeoCon(federates) Lose Again

On the heels of the DNC comes some encouraging news:

A federal appeals court decisively struck down North Carolina’s voter identification law on Friday, saying its provisions deliberately “target African-Americans with almost surgical precision” in an effort to depress black turnout at the polls.

The Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals panel unleashed a blistering 83-page can of “WTF were you THINKING” on the hapless dopes of the NCGOP, noting that the law “constitute inapt remedies for the problems assertedly justifying them and, in fact, impose cures for problems that did not exist.”

Particularly damning evidence was brought to light when it was revealed that the legislature took this action only after the Supreme Court struck down provisions of the Voting Rights Act pertaining to federal oversight of election policy, meticulously studying voting patterns and procedures favored by minorities, and then deliberately restricting or eliminating those (and only those) patterns and procedures.

Similarly restrictive provisions in Wisconsin’s voter ID law were also struck down.

North Carolina officials stated their intent to appeal, but with a 4-4 tie at the Supreme Court level (thanks for not doing your jobs, GOP senators!) it is likely that the rejection of the law will stand for this election cycle.

This. Is. America.

Just watch.

This Is How You Do Work

This is one of the most powerful, most moving, most “just exactly what was needed WHEN WE NEEDED IT” speeches I have EVER heard. Simply incredible.

Time To Gear Up

The necrotic dumpster fire that was the Republican National Convention is finally over, and it was every bit as bad as I had imagined it would be. There’s plenty I could say in response to both the party and the gibbering buffoon representing them, but for now I’ll outsource this to Jon Stewart:

The GOP doesn’t just need to be defeated in November; that would be letting them off too lightly.  They need to be DESTROYED.

It’s Not Live, It’s Memorex
