Republicans Slick Double-Cross on Voting Rights

"Beware the stranger bearing gifts. In 2007, the Voting Rights Act must be reauthorized. Now some GOP leaders are suggesting that the law be made "national and permanent." That sounds good. But beware. This plan, hatched in right-wing think tanks, sounds good, but is designed to gut the Voting Rights Act. By making it national and permanent, the Congress would set the act up for being ruled unconstitutional by the Supreme Court. Republicans will have used the court to murder the Voting Rights Act while pretending to have clean hands."
