Read in High court's remap case crucial to Texas that "Paul Smith, arguing for Democratic voters challenging a new congressional map in Pennsylvania, asked the high court to limit gerrymandering ... "The House of Representatives is supposed to be the mirror of the people," Smith told the justices. "... This is like saying a Republican vote is worth more than a Democratic vote." ... "Frankly, we don't have a problem with that," said Bart DeLone, a deputy attorney general who argued for the state's Republican leaders." Absolutely. Liberals just need to get used to it. In fact, a certain Republican maker of voting equipment may even now be deciding just what portion of the Democratic ballots to bother tabulating next year.
