You know what's wrong with 50 year old data?  There's 50 of them!

Garet Garrett: "Gutted"?  It surgically removed one piece of the VRA, the piece that mandated preclearance of any change to voting laws in specific jurisdictions based upon 40-year-old data.  The Party of Science should be able to comprehend the rationale for rejecting that.  The entirety of the VRA apparatus, and particularly its post-facto enforcement mechanisms, remains in place.  But by all means, use this as an excuse to pursue your Christmas Holiday list of fantasy "reforms."

There we go. That should drive a few people nuts.

You mean the Congress is doing what the Congress was supposed to do rather than use 50 year old data?  Amazing.
