I Thought Gerrymandering for Political Advantage Was Wrong?

I guess that’s just when the other side does it.

Dems look to cut half of NY's GOP House with gerrymandering (nypost.com)

New York State Republican Committee Chairman Nick Langworthy immediately vowed to challenge the redistricting plan, saying that Democrats “are going to stonewall and drag this process out hoping New Yorkers aren’t paying attention so partisan legislators can draw their own maps.”

“Like everything else under Democrat control in New York, this process is a political sham built on a foundation of lies and hypocrisy,” he said in a prepared statement.

Meh. It is what it is. Gerrymandering has been with us forever. Until you start laying out districts in little squares based totally on population counts, this is going to happen. And the party that it’s done to isn’t going to like it.

Life’s tough all over.
