Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Lawyers representing state legislative leaders were in court Thursday in Raleigh, arguing to throw out an anti-gerrymandering lawsuit that targets the state's new political districts. The lawsuit argues that the state constitution guarantees the right to fair elections, and it says the new districts violate that promise. The Republican-led legislature argues that no such right exists, since it's impossible to define what "fair" means.

No right to fair elections because "fair" is impossible to define?

Good old Republicans saying the dumbest things imaginable to destroy Democracy.

Republicans can't define what's, "fair"?

That's NOT news!

The unsaid truth of how Republicans feel about elections: "Fair" is any election Republicans win. "Unfair" is any election Republicans lose, even without evidence of malfeasance.

why not divide each state into grids N/S E/W ... assign each section a district number and vote accordingly.

sure, an obviously there'd be a huge population difference between certain sections, but so what. maybe tie the population figure to the area figure and chicago's section would get more representation than a wheat field in the southern portion of the state. have a minimum population figure for a section to have a rep otherwise it gets counted with an adjoining section or 2 or 3 whatever to get the pop. fig up to the minimum for a rep.

to me, gerrymandering has to be lauded with the same tongue in cheek approach you'd take explaining why lobbying isn't just pretty much bribery dressed up to look legitimate
