George Will was on Amanpour last night, crying about the Federal voting rights legislation as an "unconstitutional" Federal interference in elections, but, then conceded that the voting rights legislation of the 60s, which was also Federal interference in how states run elections, was the right thing to do.

He then offered that the restrictive voting laws being put in place by GOP run states aren't restricting, but only rolling back voting procedures to what they were before the accommodations made for the plague, but offered no reason why more restrictive voting laws, even if they are a "rollback", are justified. He did concede that the hot air expelled by the right about election fraud is a "Niagara of nonsense", but, still, he cited no justification for more restrictive voting procedures.

George didn't exactly cover himself with glory last night.

Full interview at the link. He has some interesting things to say about fiscal responsibility and race too.
