Whomever thought up gerrymandering should have been shot before he uttered a single word of it to anyone.

You sure it wasn't independently discovered by multiple people?

If anything, it's a natural offshoot of Britain's "rotten boroughs," where boundaries were left untouched for decades until Old Sarum (population a few sheep) had more MPs than Manchester (booming industrial city).
Quote from: William Lyon Mackenzie King
There are few men in this Parliament for whom I have greater respect than the leader of the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation. I admire him in my heart, because time and again he has had the courage to say what lays on his conscience, regardless of what the world might think of him. A man of that calibre is an ornament to any Parliament.

Now Trump has said that Obama has 'wire-tapped' trump tower. The best thing to come out of it is Sarah Huckabee Sanders saying if that's true then it is a big deal. Ignoring the fact that Trump could get direct knowledge if there was any.

Who all happened to be the sole person on the electoral roll in one hundred separate districts?

In other news John Oliver has christened the multi-car pile up that has been the Trump cabinets response to revelations about Russian interference in the election "Stupid Watergate"

The Trump's surrogate's response to that reporter was essentially that by "take the media seriously" Trump has taken the sum total of media reporting, including the tinfoil hat fringe-especially the tinfoil hat fringe and come out howling "muh Obama tapppped muh wires" like a confused centenarian thinking that he's back dodging ordinance in the Somme. This is supposed to...reassure people?

No, like a cowardly twenty-something with "bone spurs" dodging STDs at orgies while children of poorer parents go to Vietnam to be cannon fodder.

Eh, I didn't mean to imply Trump would be brave enough to put his orange arsehole into danger. Merely that he sounded like he was having a "grandad moment".

New travel ban set to be implemented today.  It's the same as the old one only Iraq has been left off the no go country list.

How long before it is also struck down by a federal judge?

You mean "How long before Trump goes on a Twitter tirade about how judges are threatening national security?"

EDIT: But then this is of course the old trick: propose something really outrageous so that your follow-up looks reasonable. (You see the same thing with abortion; for instance, in Ohio, Kasich vetoed a bill that would have banned it after about six weeks so that he could look reasonable signing a twenty-week ban.)

Failing that, of course, you just keep signing slightly modified versions of the same thing to overwhelm the courts.

In other news Ben Carson is a very stupid man.

Quote
"That's what America is about, a land of dreams and opportunity, There were other immigrants who came here in the bottom of slave ships, worked even longer, even harder for less. But they too had a dream that one day their sons, daughters, grandsons, granddaughters, great-grandsons, great-granddaughters, might pursue prosperity and happiness in this land."

....I don't know which part of that statement I should criticise first.

Luckily Samuel L. Jackson already commented on this:

No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

It also doesn't turn away permanent residents and people with visas.
