Yesterday the Wisconsin State Journal editorial board clucked approvingly when a 2nd-term congressman blurted out the truth
We’re at a place now in this country where voters are not picking their representatives anymore. Representatives, through the gerrymandering process and redistricting, are picking their voters.
Well, duh… The WSJ went on to call for honest and fairly-drawn voting districts. That is awfully nice, but as we said recently, NOT GONNA HAPPEN. Republican majorities wherever they exist are working feverishly to rewrite voting laws to benefit themselves, fairness be damned. It’s plain as day. Has the editorial board failed to notice who controls today’s Republican Party? These guys are not going to be influenced by sweet little calls for fairness on anyone’s editorial page.
