Not coincidentally, those districts that got most severely gerrymandered just so happen to be where there was an increase in voting age-population of non-white citizens.

But it doesn’t have anything to do with race!
Honest!

I’d like to see gerrymandering done away with. It’s just too damaging. Where I live it’s the other way around. State (not Federal!) districts for the state houses have been distorted to strengthen the Democratic party in California. All of this only serves to distort results.

According to this state assembly lines in California are being drawn by the new Commission. I wish every state had this.

We had to vote it in. Once we did, the GOP immediately tried to get the courts to throw it out.

They may be total assholes, but they are consistent.

And let’s face it, few things are as important in life as regular assholes.

There has to be a way to draw a map such that it has a target number of people in the most geographically compact space. It can’t be that hard, really.

I wonder what such a map of the country would look like.

And Abbot will, most likely, be the republican candidate for TX Governor in ‘14.

Thanks Obama!
