    every one of these states will pass it.  He's doing the smart thing here.  Let some sunshine in, get some press on how blatantly undemocratic these bills are, and keep Obama out of it.

    So far, so good.  Virginia killed the bill today in committee, 11-4 (check ThinkProgress).  Michigan's governor and senate majority leader have come out against it.  Pennsylvania didn't pass it last time and it's got a less Republican legislature than it did before.

    The threat of lawsuits should not come until the deed is almost done.  Right now, keep exposing these bastards and hope that the few Republicans with a sense of shame and/or political self-preservation kill these bills.

    •  Ahhh, well reasoned dialogue (1+ / 0-)

      Both the Diary and the Dialogue here are a model of the best this community has to offer (see subject line above); substance, thrust and parry, well informed, illuminating and without rancor.

      Well done all y'all, encore!

      Just getting a handle on the knobs and dials.... Hey, don't touch that!

    •  And it won't come up in Ohio because (0+ / 0-)

      it would guarantee every statewide Republican would be swept out of office next year.

      Jon Husted is a dick.
