"If you ask everybody in this country to raise their hands if they've ever sold drugs or tried an illegal substance, more than 50% of us would be in jail right now.
VOTING RIGHTS ACT:
"I really don't think a lot of the media coverage was helpful on what happened on the Voting Rights Act. I'm a member of Project 21, and we filed an amicus brief asking them to rule in the manner that they did, and precisely because of those significant legal issues that were involved." -Horace Cooper
"I would like to connect the dots with Paula Deen. She said, 'I is what I is and I ain't gonna change.' And that is precisely the mindset of the old Confederacy, and why they merited extra scrutiny. And, if you look at the dozens and dozens of rule changes that were shot down by the Justice Department, under first glance, it's clear that these places have not reformed." -Dan Neil
"It's more like racism went from Racism 1.0 to 2.0. Yes, there are no more poll taxes, but there are these voter I.D. laws that they're trying to pass in states, that really serve the same function of stopping people from voting." -Bill Maher
"Donald Trump is a worse racist, but he gets to keep his show because he never said the word. Sarah Palin is a worse racist. She said Obama was 'shucking and jiving his way to victory.' Newt Gingrich said he was 'the food stamp president.' This is real racism." -Bill Maher
"The court can't enforce a law that interprets what you think is unfair. The court is required to enforce what the law actually does. And the reason they lost is because that's what they were trying to do." -Horace Cooper
"The data they were using that they said was out of date, the latest data was 2006. This was not obsolete information on these states. The ruling doesn't make much sense to me." -Dan Neil
