Brum to GOP: Take a deep breath

Posted By on Thu, May 26, 2011 at 6:25 AM

John Brummett today writes (link corrected) about hyperventilating Republicans' wildly exaggerated whining about the legislative redistricting process. It's a political process. It's controlled by Democrats. Too bad for their side. The end.

PS — Legislative lines are of relatively small importance against prevailing political moods anyway. See the triumvirate of nobodies/crackpots elected to statewide office in 2010 because they ran under a party banner not burdened by the prominent candidacy of a swarthy Islamo-fascist Kenyan.
