Driving liberals, dhimmis and illegal alien apologists absolutely insane since 2005...

Welcome to the 1st CD, Neighbors

The new Congressional redistricting map is out and it turns out to be even a little stranger than the map we were teased with earlier.  Folks in my neighborhood, those west of Manassas and south of Rt. 29 are all in the 1st Congressional district, currently represented by Rob Wittman.  At least we didn’t get drawn into Gerry Connolly’s 11th District, which meanders from Quantico to Alexandria to Centreville to Herndon, and barely anything in between.

I guess Rob liked how we tore down Krystal Ball last cycle, but I didn’t expect him to want to scoop up my neighborhood as a means of saying thanks.

    Well, it’s better than the 3rd, which has four distinct parts — and you cannot drive from one to another without going through someone else’s district. If Scott thinks he needs a gerrymandered majority-minority district to win, how the heck does he expect to be a U.S. Senator?

    I wish they could figure out how to use normal map software, so normal people could see what they are up to without having to infect their computers with silverlight software.

    Jack, when Bobby Scott was in the state senate his district was a majority white district. The Justice dept under the civil rights act required at least one district be majority minority, Scott was vigorously opposed to the gerrymandering at the time since he proved several times that a harvard educated black could win in a 62% white district.

    Everyone seems to know that except the liberals, who don’t think Blacks can compete with Whites so they need majority-minority districts.

    Uh, Greg: my recollection is that Krystal Ball WON the Prince William part of the 1st last time around.

    Krystal Ball won the PWC portion of the 1st CD (12 precincts) 5,870 to 4,101.
