As the nation gears up for the 2012 presidential election, Republican officials have launched an unprecedented, centrally coordinated campaign to suppress the elements of the Democratic vote that elected Barack Obama in 2008. Just as Dixiecrats once used poll taxes and literacy tests to bar black Southerners from voting, a new crop of GOP governors and state legislators has passed a series of seemingly disconnected measures that could prevent millions of students, minorities, immigrants, ex-convicts and the elderly from casting ballots.

Elizabeth Warren vs. Scott Brown: It’s On!


Our favorite (only?) Elizabeth Warren .gif is back! That’s because the badass Harvard professor and former Obama adviser, who proposed a Consumer Financial Protection Bureau before anyone else even thought we needed one, just launched an exploratory committee to challenge Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) in 2012.

Brown’s strategy so far has been to label Warren an out-of-touch Harvard elite from Oklahoma. We’re pretty sure that’s the first time anyone has ever used that stereotype.

Yes, please. I will vote twice if I can.
