Should be fine

I think the redistricting should go fine if the Republicans use the same criteria that the Democrats have been using over the past few decades. The Democrats were certainly fair in their redistricting. Hopefully what was good for the goose will be good for the gander. I hope the Republicans will be as fair as the Democrats have been in redistricting. Then none will be able to complain.

Sarcasm is never becoming

Democrats abused the system to their seeming advantage, with Republicans rightly crying foul all the way. Now that Republicans have a chance to depoliticize the process, they're choosing tit-for-tat. There's not time to do it right, they say, so they'll just go along with partisan politics as usual.

And we wonder why so many people think both parties are full of self-interested assholes.
