The Republican Party is really in trouble. And in typical fashion they are reaching for African America to 'save the day', again.
Bush-Cheney-Rove-Rumsfeld-Rice and Company are 'running for cover'.
The heat is 'on.'
They can't find Bin Laden.
They lied about an urgency for war.
They lied about the reasons for the urgency.
They can't find the reasons (WMD's)
They can't stop the Insurgency in Iraq.
They can't rebuild the infrastructure (light, water) for any significant percentage of Iraq.
So now this:
'House GOP leaders are expressing their intention to reauthorize the Voting Right Act (VRA) (subscription required) two years before it expires. Republicans are actively looking to renew the measure this year, following rumors claiming that the GOP may attempt to water the bill down or simply let it expire in 2007.'---Diversity, Inc.
Why are they turning to us now???
Could it be the 'goodness of their hearts?'
The Republicans have fought this for 23 years with lies, and simple 'stonewalling'.
Now there it is in present-day news.
Maybe denying 'black' folks will believe it now.
Republicans are looking to 'renew' it this year.
Does that mean another few years?
That's what the NAACP's Legal Defense Fund is recommending.
That's what The Rainbow/PUSH Coalition is circulating a petition to achieve. 'Us'uns can't ask for a permanent law. Mr. Charlie will get mad and say it's unconstitutional.
'Yassuh, Yassuh, Thank ya suh!!!!
Surely God loves.
We damn ourselves to hell!!
We should be in the media screaming like hell for permanency for Section 4(a).
Where are the voices for African America???
I'm starting to rant.
