Gerrymandered Nation


I saw Joe Scarborough joining in those on the right who presage that the Democrats will "take back Congress" this fall, while giving some cues which suggest that his prediction was not necessarily sincere. Not one word about the gerrymandering which has removed any real danger of election loss for the vast majority of Members of Congress.

What's going on? It's a "can't lose" for the right-wing talking heads. If they are right, they can pat themselves on the back for their "unbiased" predictions. If they're wrong, and I think most expect to be wrong, they can describe it as a great victory for the Republicans and a vindication of the President.

Personally, I think this is part of a coordinated media campaign.
