Well, one hour after the ruling, the Texas Attorney General gladly announced that they were going to enforce the ID law and the redistricting that had been blocked by the Justice dept. Awesome!

This said, it's been section 4, no section 5 that has been stricken down. In other words, preclearance is still okay, but the map of States that required it no longer is- so it's up to Congress to redraw it. Sadly we aren't talking about the 2006 (no 2003, my error) Congress that voted in favour of the VRA by 98-0 in the Senate and 390-33 in the House. We are talking about the Congress that can't pass a Farm Bill supported by the Majority.

I'm sorry for all the minority voters in those States.
Y hubo tanto amor que no queda nada,
Y ahora mírate, no, no, no, no,
No puedes ver bien la luz.
Cuando todas las historias se acaban
Y ya solo quedas tú.

Yes kids, once upon a time I was an admin
