Until the effects of whatever they were smoking when they drew it up wears off??

On a similar note, I was reading an article today about the former Speaker of the House here retiring, and in it it mentioned how about 10 years ago, he was in charge of the House when the prior redistricting was done, and of course he and his party drew up the redistricting map to benefit their party. Their counterparts across the aisle approached them about having an independent comission do the redistricting, which they summarily ignored. Well, here we are about 10 years later, the counterparts across the aisle have the majority in both chambers, and it's time to redraw the district maps again. Guess who's all in favor of an independent commission redrawing the maps now?? Ahhhhh, the irony of it all. They are now reaping what they've sown, and I for one am glad to see it.
