Ari Berman, explained how the Supreme Court gutted the Voting Rights Act, why the ruling helps southern states recreate segregation in Congressional districts, how Justice Roberts “imagined” his way to a ruling and how Justice Kennedy has disgraced himself in his votes on healthcare reform and Voting Rights.

On The Better Half: DOMA overturned, the fake IRS “scandal” dies again, Glenn Beck and Rand Paul wonder if ending DOMA could lead to more Muslims!? And your IMs.
