THE NAYS OF TEXAS….To me, the whole Texas-Democrats-fleeing-the-state thing seems mostly like one of those hilarious Texas Lege absurdities that Molly Ivins is so good at skewering, but maybe there’s more to it. Redistricting in the middle of a decade really is a serious upping of the ante in the political wars, Tom DeLay and his minions do seem to have overreached considerably, and maybe they really did conspire to get the Homeland Security Department involved in the manhunt.

In any case, Josh Marshall is all over this, so if you want the latest goods just go here and start scrolling down.
