Those bastions of civil service, the Republican party, continue to show their true colors. More and more every day, we see what dispicable hooligans they are.
Now, they don't want to extend the voting rights act, something that is so common sense it shouldn't even need consideration! Equal rights should be the law of the land, not the whim of a select few - who now don't seem to have that whim at all.
Make no mistake, there's no way this won't go through, but it is the continued grand-standing of the Repubs to appeal to their base, founded on intolerance and hatred, that is so appalling.
There's a petition going around if you feel compelled to sign it.
