The US Supreme Court has just struck down a section of the 40 50 year-old Voting Rights Act, and as could be predicted, the usual suspects are being irrational. Like MSNBC's Melissa Harry-Perry:

And the same network's Chris Hayes:

Thankfully, there's Breitbart's Ben Shapiro for some rational common sense:

UPDATE: Hey look! It's Ron Marz again, offering still more evidence of his prodigious intellect!

Just don't ask Ron how today's SCOTUS decision would do just that. He'll ignore you. Because, to coin a cliché, ignorance is bliss. Meanwhile, enjoy a non-emotional, 21st century rational examination of today's high court decision.

UPDATE 2: The Corner has compiled a Top Ten list of the best ["progressive"] overreactions to today's SCOTUS Voting Rights Act decision.

Kudos to Shapiro for injecting some common sense and rationality into the whole thing. Harris-Perry and Hayes are just spewing overemotional, irrational hyperbole, as are many of the people who are "upset" by this.
