Yeah, I know that there’ll probably be no serious repercussions in Texas state government from the latest power grab by the Supreme tinhorns. Yes, I know that the GOP will keep most of the districts they created back in 2002.
But what pisses me off most about this – besides the fact that the Demoscum got rewarded (even if in part) over the temper tantrums they threw after being booted from power – is something that asshatted fool Anthony “18-year-old murderers can walk” Kennedy said about the Republican-drawn districts:
Justice Anthony M. Kennedy, writing for the majority, said Hispanics do not have a chance to elect a candidate of their choosing under the plan.
At issue was the shifting of 100,000 Hispanics out of a district represented by a Republican incumbent and into a new, oddly shaped district. Justices had been told that was an unconstitutional racial gerrymander under the Voting Rights Act, which protects minority voting rights.
Five’ll get you ten that a solid majority of that 100,000 are illegals – and now the Soprano Court seems more concerned about votes they probably can’t legally cast than they are about the Republican majority in Texas whose representatives drew those boundaries in the first place.
Then again, these black-robed tyrants have already demonstrated that they only wanna enforce laws they give a shit about, so WTF?
Rope, tree…you know the drill.
