    Another champagne moment, courtesy of the Republican Foot in Mouth Committee !
    Ironically, Speaker Suntan speaks the truth. That is the plan for 2016.

    Yeah, that redistricting stuff is about as fair and impartial as Faux News

    I hope this strip gets re-run in the Fall of 2016 to remind voters that the Republican platform is not about representing the people or good governance.

    The RNC hired Michael Steele so they can win the House in 2010, so the GOP could Gerrymander. Once successful, they fired him.

    The advent of smaller and smaller personal recording devices makes it harder for Politicians to follow the first rule of “C.Y.A.”, which is “DENYDENYDENY
    But even then, some still try it!
    Newt Gingrich; “Anyone who quotes what I said on that video recording is lying!”

    @MassieVoter

    You’re assuming enough people read this strip to make a difference.

    Just think, you can buy gadgets at Walmarts today the CIA would have killed for in the 60’s. Congress needs to beef up the Privacy laws. Technology has outdsitanced legislation.

    I remember when Rush made his famous “I never lie and I’m always right” statement. That’s when factcheckers started checking to see just how truthful he was. About 30% was true. If you go to factcheckers.org now you will find about 10 pages of his lies, and that’s after they have cut back his history, it only goes back about three years. I guess they just couldn’t spare the room to keep his whole list of lies.

    It is the states that do the redistricting (for all state and federal districts), not Washington. However, the GOP has dome the most blantant and gregarious gerrymandering seen in a long time. And the GOP in Texas even pushed through a redistricting midstream (about eight yeas ago).

    delusional! each district had the same number of people in it! you dont design districts based on voter turn out! close races had a higher turnout and a lot of gop races just were not close!

    Take a look at the California district stats before, and after, the decennial redistricting (following each census) of 2010, using the new ’Citizen’s Redistricting Commission’ rather than the same old Legislature pols (and the court fights that follow). The salamander (Gerrymander) in many of them is now shorter and fatter, at least. Yeah, not everybody was happy, but there’s lots less ‘safe turf’ in the Leg. now.

    Often wondered why redistricting isn’t being done by Computer. Define the criteria, feed in the Census information, . . .Whallah! Objective, non-biased, and none of this “snake-with-a broken-back” stuff!

    (of course THEN the fight would be over the ‘criteria’ but it might be a bit more obvious that they’re ‘stacking the deck’ and thus earn voter’s wrath.)

    unfortunately, population density is a big factor. and, if one district is a larger in size, but lower in population density than another district, people will complain. another reason, is that some people are paranoid about the gov’t and will never fill out census data which mean under-representation. and, politicians love gerrymandering(a former house whip went to jail for his involvement in gerrymandering).

    @unintent2000

    Are suggesting there’s no such thing as gerrymandering? If so, are you really that naive?
