We’ve had Gerrymandering since the early 1800s. It was named after Elbridge Gerry, from Massachusetts. It’s part of the game. It’s always been part of the game and it’s been successfully used by both sides. You don’t like it now because the other side is using it. Oh and let’s throw in “racist” too and see if you can intimidate the other side into backing down. They won’t — you’ve overplayed that card and now nobody believes it when they hear it. That’s too bad because there is still some racism out there, but there’s also a boy who cried wolf problem. You have yourselves to blame.

A single golf clap? Or a long standing ovation?
