  •  I've been saying the same. Big money has got to (0+ / 0-)

    stop this insanity.  And I say that fully aware of how totally f**ked up it is that we have to rely on big money to save the integrity of the country when they have done so much to destroy it.  But you are correct, voters aren't going to be able to do this.  Not even when the elections come around.  Because until the droolingly insane minority is corralled nothing will help.  Those 30 or so are electorally immune.  Wouldn't it be interesting to have the GOP come to the conclusion that having completely bullet proof districts (even if they are GOP) isn't necessarily a good thing.  At this point the other less-crazy  Reps. have got to be thinking, "Why do I have to take all of the political risk to save the country and these crazy asshats don't have to worry about re-election at all".  Maybe we could get some real bipartisan agreement on undoing some of the worst gerrymandering.
