Victory! Voting Rights Act renewed

How sweet it is in these often dark times to report good news. On Thursday, the Senate passed the renewal of the Voting Rights Act, a week after the House did the same, and President Bush has said that he will sign it. Attempts to amend the act failed.

Soak in some good news for once!

Ah... But will Bush include a signing statement detailing how he won't actually *enforce* the provisions of the renewed law?

Funny you mention that:
"Civil rights hiring shifted in Bush era"

Crud, you can't access that article now w/o paying for it. Basically, the article says that the Bush administration has been hiring lawyers with strong conservative credentials but w/o experience in civil rights for the civil rights division of DOJ. Nice, huh?
