    Texas needs to do whatever they can to get that idiot out of the governor's chair, even if it means cutting the districts that support retardation.

      How does redistricting change a state-wide election? I don't understand. Please explain.

      He was the only logical choice when the Dims had Obama lite, White, as a candidate.

    With the current mix of Supreme Court Justices, The Dems have little chance for justice anyway.

      Delay hasn't had a voice in Texas Politics since Ronnie Earle railroaded him years ago. He doesn't even live in Texas.

      Yep. With Obama as the standard bearer, the Dims will lose even more seats in Texas politics.

    The Repub map was defaulted for being unconst.itutional! Now that's their battle cry over the new map, which is much more geared to the contst.ituents, as it should be, & not the rich or the politicians! I hope the justices hand down justice & lets the new map stand! It would be a victory for my states working class & poor! We are after all the majority!!
