Dickishness aplenty

Dickishness is my favorite word (can you tell?).

It’s the perfect word to describe what the Republicans just did to the Voting Rights Act of 1965 that was designed to guarantee Republicans^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^Hracist bigots wouldn’t manage to keep minority voters (blacks) out of the polls come election day.

The act is set to expire next year unless it’s renewed.

Speaker Dennis Hastert was to introduce the renewal, but he was overrun by his fellow Republicans, who refused to support the renewal, because, apparently, it would encourage hispanic voting.

The Republicans couldn’t have said it any clearer: Republicans don’t want any brown people in the US.

And, if by any chance all of them illegal immigrants manage to con the US Government to give them US citizenship, by God, it’d be quite awful, if they all voted. They wouldn’t vote for us racist bigots, that’s for damn sure. So let’s make sure we don’t lift a finger to help making voting easier for Spanish speaking voters.

Democracy! Ah, such a wonderful thing.
