Calm yourselves.

Every polical hack worth his salt will Gerrymander 'til the cows come home.

There's enough cow manure on the democrats in this state to mute every cow bell from here to Tennessee, and with enough left over that we couldn't scrape it off our boots fast enough even if'n the Dallas Cowboy Cheeleaders were egging us on.

Gerrymandering has been going on for years. It's a lot of pols on both sides of the isle are in their positions. Here's a radical idea. Divide each state in half N/S or E/W no matter and then give them the appropriate number of reps/senators and be done with it.

Sometimes I think there is merit in the "at large" elections, like for the PRC for example, yet there is also merit not to when it comes to representation of the ural or low population areas who are easily out gunned by the more heavily populated areas.

This crap has been going on for years and years, and were the Reps running the show, the only difference would be the names of the whiners. One party is just as adept and likely to screw the other.
