Thank you to everyone who had a kid in the past 10 years, but the battle for 2020 is just beginning! Don't wait, procreate!

"The state was on the bubble for hanging onto all eight seats in reapportionment ..." >>>>>>>>>>>>>>> We're on the "bubble" all right. Just look at the "bubble" representing Congresional District No. 6.

Looks like Michelle Bachman will keep her job for the next 10 years.

Weird, it looks like people are moving from high tax states (New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Michigan) and moving to low tax states (Arizona, Texas, Florida and Nevada).

Sorry I did not find this article interesting. But here is an idea, maybe the next election will go smoother, there will be less votes to count.

I wonder how Texas will redistrict now since Tom Delay is in prison. Should be interesting.

It's a great thing we all completed our census, eh Michelle Bachmann? Oh wait, the census is a ten question survey that is too invasive... but much less invasive than the patriot act... which is justified because we should be willing to offering up everything about us in the name of being patriots... uh, except when patriots are non-responders from Ground Zero that we treat like dirt. It much be so confusing to be a Republican.

Since Me-chele Bachmann led the push to NOT fill out the census, it would have been funny had we lost a seat, costing her her job. Alas, we're stuck with the loon for another couple of years.
