    Let me be the first to congratulate Mr. Holder for standing up for those who are being disenfranchised. However, I am afraid he will get a little criticism from the right for this.

    I crack myself up sometimes.

    Uh, oh. More evidence of a Obama's alleged dictatorship. The guy running the Justice Department is focusing on fighting for justice for the least powerful and powerless in America.
