As the media keep beating the drums of this supposed GOP take over, we have to wonder whether the head in the oven response that any thinking person will have to the pronouncement of "Speaker of the House, John Boehner" will be covered as much as “GOP loses demoralize party faithful.”
But while the discussions have focused on useless labels, and political slogans (such as ‘Mama Grizzlies’ anyone?) we are overlooking the gerrymandering that is scheduled to occur this next political cycle in 2011.
The long-lasting consequences of the upcoming elections for the Census-based redrawing of the political geography has gone largely unnoticed by the media talking heads. We need to take a step back and consider the implications of local and state elections for the future control of state legislatures. And with the media focusing on Tea Bagging, raging bears, and Sarah Palin’s holy anointments, can we expect any real discussion of the inevitable redistricting?
Yeah, I am not going to hold my breath either.
