Justice League

Remember how when John McCain warns us about the sinister Democratic lobbying group ACORN and its attack on our democracy, he’s really talking about the sinister Republican lobbying group the United States Department of Justice (also, the FBI!) and its attack on our democracy? Well, good news everyone!  The Supreme Court today shut down a lawsuit by Republicans in Ohio that could have disenfranchised up to 200,000 voters in that crucial swing state.  This ruling also prevents the GOP from using the same tactic to gum up the works in other states.

If you’re still confused as to what exactly the GOP is trying to do, here’s a little more background on how this hilariously Orwellian attempt to banana our republic has been going on for several election cycles. And here’s Yglesias on how to make these voter suppression tactics go away forever.
