Meet the Press last Sunday

Since I'm on a roll here and I actually broke the drought of not posting, I thought I'd post one more thing that I think is significant on the Sunday News Show circuit. I heard it last week on MTP in an interview with Nancy Pelosi.

Ms. Pelosi said that she thought and that there was evidence to support that the republican's contempt citation in the house against attorney general Holder was retribution against Holder's suits to block voter suppression laws against poor and minority communities, particularly in the south.

This was the first time I had heard such a theory. But when I heard it, it made sense to me. It is true that Holder is aggressively challenging laws passed, particularly in southern states, but not entirely, which require photo IDs, and other obstacles to citizen's voting.

Holder's Dept. of Justice has filed several important actions, many of which are holding up at least parts of these laws. The core of these laws is to limit democrats from voting. This is one chance that the republicans have in trying to get rid of Obama, their number one priority. Holder is blocking them, and they don't like it.

I think the mainstream media should be jumping on this. I haven't seen the jump yet. Maybe it will happen. The fact that it hasn't, and that there hasn't been a full vetting, one way or another, to find out if what Pelosi, former speaker and maybe future speaker, is alleging is true. That is a shame, because it's huge in a democracy that holds itself up as an example for the rest of the world.
