The Spoils of War
The Texas Republicans, with the aid of the cowardly John Whitmire, have won the battle in Texas. Governor Perry has called a third special session and redistricting (to give Republicans 5-7 more seats in the US House) will soon be underway. The one bright spot is that redistricting may not go anywhere for a while, as Republicans are now fighting each other over how to redraw the districts.
P.S. Let’s root for the Democrats to gain narrow majorities in California, New York, and Illinois and then respond in kind. It’s not as far fetched as it sounds.
