Naturally, they're "conservative" idiots:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/...

“I’ve always felt that it was unconstitutional... I would’ve agreed in 1965 that something had to be done, but it should’ve been done to all 50 states. I just always felt that was wrong, that was a violation of the 10th Amendment to begin with, of states’ rights.” — Rep. Bill Denny, R-Miss., and chairman of the House Elections Committee.
I have absolutely NO idea what Bill Denny is talking about.  Does he even understand the Constitution?
“We’re free and clear to follow through with our law now without any restriction by the Justice Department... Last year I think we spent over a half a million dollars defending our pre-clearance cases. That cost will be eliminated in the future as a result of this opinion.” — Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner.
No you're not free and clear to follow through with your law.  We know what you have done to suppress the minority vote in the 2012 and we're not going to let you do it in the name of power for the GOP.
“Today’s Supreme Court’s ruling invalidating the preclearance requirements contained within the Voting Rights Act is a win for fairness, South Carolina, and the rule of law... The court’s ruling will hopefully end the practice of treating states differently and recognizes that we live in 2013, not the 1960’s.” —Rep. Jeff Duncan, R-S.C.
Win for fairness?  Fairness for the GOP you mean, right?

How soon can we get Democratic challengers to defeat Congressmen Bill Denny and Jeff Duncan, as well as Ken Detzner, for re-election?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
