Redistricting

REDISTRICTING….Excellent news: Tennessee Democrat John Tanner has introduced a bill to put a stop to yet another of the Republican party’s favorite Calvinball practices: mid-decade gerrymandering whenever they feel like it might benefit them. The Carpetbagger, who has the details, is impressed with Tanner’s approach.

Needless to say, this will go nowhere. Even Tanner knows that. But this is something the entire Democratic caucus ought to get behind in order to position themselves as the party of integrity and reform. This is a national issue, and the only way to handle it is on a national basis.
