Oh my! An unconstitutional law is in danger of being partially struck down. The horror!

Yeah, I'll believe it when I see the final ruling. Remember how the individual mandate was “dead” after last years oral arguments? John Roberts hasn't got his marching orders from the Whitehouse on this ruling yet...

The blatant racial intimidation and discrimination in voting procedures that prevailed in states such as Alabama when the law was written in 1965 and renewed in 1970, 1975, and 1982, no longer exist . . .

Sounds like a fairly reasonable and logical argument to me.

Yeah, it could open the doors to all sorts of atrocities like insisting on voter IDs and that people be actually living, registered and eligible before they vote.

OTOH, they could apply said laws in places such as Philadelphia, Detroit and Cleveland where crap goes on worse than what Alabama did in the 1960s.

Yeah, until Obama’s college buddy Elena Kagan tells him what’s been going on behind closed doors so he can again blackmail Roberts with whatever he has on him.

Raise your hand if you think the Supremes will uphold the constitution.

Roberts will declare the VRA legal by calling it a tax.

Well, there goes the neighborhood. It may be harder for the Marxists to conduct voter fraud in The South if this happens. Just think of all those disenfranchised “Holder’s People.! The horror of it all!
