5. The Supreme Court, for once again making sure blacks and gays never have a good week at the same time. Remember 2008? Hooray, we elected Barack Obama! Oh shit, Proposition 8. Now, fast-forward to 2013: Hooray, we defeated DOMA! Oh shit, the most important legacy of the Civil Rights movement was just gutted, capping off a 40-year campaign to stack the bench with conservatives trained to kill the VRA and eventually Roe v. Wade. Don't think the Roberts Court isn't coming for you next, women. Wendy Davis better get new shoes for whatever they're planning.
