Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Wisconsin Democrats challenge newly drawn districts on creative (and amusing) constitutional grounds

Dude, it’s official: I have seen it all.  Details:

A group of residents asked a federal court to throw out new legislative and congressional maps on Thursday, a day after lawmakers approved them.

Under the legislation, Democrats have little chance of attaining and retaining a majority in either the Senate or the Assembly, or in the congressional delegation, giving them little ability to overcome minority status at any point over the next decade,” the lawsuit argues.

Read that bold part again, aloud, then grab a spatula to get your jaw off of the floor.  That’s the actual legal argument in their lawsuit.

Just to clarify:

When the duly-elected state legislature does their constitutionally specified duties of redrawing legislative districts, the minority party sues because the majority party missed the part in the Constitution whereby the majority must consider the ability of the minority to put themselves back into the majority.  Well, I must have missed that part of the Constitution, too, so if one of you fine folks can point that out to me, I’d be greatly appreciative.

So at no time in the history of the republic has a majority party ever drawn legislative districts in a way that they feel maximizes their electoral chances on a perennial basis?  That’s never happened?  That doesn’t always happen about, oh, every ten years or so?

Exit question: Can we file a suit in California, then, that says “You know, it’s not fair that San Fransicko and L.A. and Suckramento get to decide things in CA in such a way that a conservative politician and agenda won’t be voted in anytime soon”?

  2. Is the suit in front of a liberal judge? Has one even agreed to look at the suit, seriously? What a joke, the libs can’t win fairly, so sue somebody.
