If it’s December, or any month of the year, for that matter, it’s time for Democrats and elderly blacks to keep fighting the war they won a long time ago.
Earlier, U.S. Rep. Terri Sewell, the lone Democrat and African American member of Alabama’s congressional delegation, told the crowd “old battles have become new again.”
Sewell cited the Alabama case that led to a U.S. Supreme Court decision effectively dismantling a section of the Voting Rights Act that required states and local governments, with a history of voter discrimination to get advance approval of voting changes. Congress has yet to agree on replacement language.
Amazing how that works. You win something, and after that, you don’t need to fight anymore. Then again, only
a cynic someone who pays attention would think that that all they want to is fight fight fight, they’re not really interested in winning, and in fact, they can never admit that they won, because that would mean they’d have to stop fighting.
In stops in the South, the Democratic presidential front-runner has been working to solidify her advantage among African-American voters.

“She is going to be president,” retired elementary school principal Maggie Stringer, 80, said emphatically. “At least I can say I did see her and I’ve been in her presence.”
Stringer was a 20-year-old student and a member of the church during the Bus Boycott.
This is precisely the kind of voter that Obama turned out in what were record numbers in 2008, and in even higher record numbers in 2012. Older black people, mainly women, because elderly people are heavily women, who remember “before” and “after,” and can therefore be agitated to turn out and vote based on the theory that the other guy on the ballot wants to take you back to “before.” HRC needs these people to at least match their 2012 turnout level, which explains why she’s doing this, and it also explains why she does not and will never feel no ways tarrd. And it will also explain why she and the media (though I repeat myself) will make Donald Trump out to be the biggest Kluxer that ever existed.
