By any means necessary
Posted by Charles II on January 21, 2013
Someone might start thinking that the GOP doesn’t believe in democracy:
The state Senate is split 20-20 between Republicans and Democrats. On Monday, while state Sen. Henry Marsh (D) — a 79-year-old civil rights veteran — was reportedly in Washington to attend President Obama’s second inaugural, GOP senators forced through a mid-term redistricting plan that Democrats say will make it easier for Republicans to gain a majority.
With Marsh’s absence, Senate Republicans in Richmond had one more vote than Senate Democrats and could push the measure through. The new redistricting map revises the districts created under the 2011 map and would take effect before the next state Senate elections in Virginia and would redraw district lines to maximize the number of safe GOP seats.
They then, on Martin Luther King Day, adjourned to honor the memory of Stonewall Jackson.
Michael Lind was right in calling conservatives the ideological heirs of Lenin.
