  1. In regards to redistricting, it annoys me that he assumes and implies that the map was drawn sorely and unfairly to benefit the GOP, when it’s just as likely it was redrawn back to a fairer and purer state after the Dems manhandled the maps when they were in control.

  2. #1, you’re probably right about some states, but OH’s GOP map redraw was a disgrace.

  3. I wish the Republicans could pick off my House seat here in Toledo. I know it won’t happen, though. She has too many union buddies voting for her.

  5. #2, Well, I mean, you have a point in regards to the redistribution being disgraceful in the sense that it was too convoluted, but I don’t feel it unfairly or disproportionally harms Dems, if anything in some ways it hurts the GOP.

  6. #5, I just think that fairly drawn districts, given the Tea Party wave, would yield larger Congressional majorities for the GOP in Ohio and elsewhere. They just don’t have the self-confidence to try, b/c they still don’t believe the Tea Party is for real.
