Candy Coated Bitter Pill

Yes SCOTUS struck down DOMA and Prop 8. It didn't cost them anything, but while all those who've been thrown a bone are whooping and hollering they gutted the Voting Rights Act.
California is back to square one on same sex marriage. DOMA was mostly symbolic about the only thing it prohibited was married same sex couples filing joint income tax, which saved them money. All other marriage laws are handled at the state level.
Meanwhile back in the South it seems that racists passing voting restrictions to keep minorities from having a voice in government is okay just so long as you don't admit under oath that you've sometime in the past you've uttered the "N" word.
