Aw c'mon Barack it kept the Southerners in power for all these years and they hope to extend the same gift to the general Republican Party.

Erik: They're certainly hoping to extend their voter suppression strategy, since it's the only thing they have. Gerrymandered congressional districts, and then using these gerrymandered districts to sabotage the electoral vote counting -- we can only hope these strategies backfire on the GOP.

Your right about the Gerry Mandering, everywhere else my experience says it only works when there is general voter apathy as their faithful base of old white people turn out in droves

Erik: Yup, that's always been the Right's big advantage. Conservatives vote come hell or high water or rain or an earthquake; liberals might vote if they remember, if they aren't too stoned, if there isn't something good on TV...

That's the stereotype anyway.
