To which post were you referring that I mis-read? I'll bet you missed it altogether.

There's nothing that says I must respond to all points in a long post ( which I usually skim read or skip) over selecting a line out to add my viewpoint to that particular single line. That was post #9 and this particular line:

Quote:
Why this asymmetry? It’s partly because Republicans created boundaries efficiently in redistricting and partly because the most Democratic districts in the country, like those in urban portions of New York or Chicago, are even more Democratic than the reddest districts of the country are Republican, meaning there are fewer Democratic voters remaining to distribute to swing districts.
I am sick of this redistricting point being made was all I was saying...and said why. That's what I want to say regarding a part of post 9.

Of course this is entirely irrelevant, since it's a logical fallacy that doesn't address the point I decided to make.
Other than that everyone makes mistakes and I admitted to the error as well as to skim reading the article. That doesn't make someone wrong about everything as you seem to think. You're just being a sandbagger. ( Binging up past conflicts to throw the discussion off-topic and stir up negativity on someone.)

Nothing to see here but a logical fallacy because you didn't like being reminded about Republicans winning in other areas. Hey, I like gridlock. It's the lesser of two evils especially with who is currently in the White House. And, again, I am tired of this whining about redistricting since it's the result of other elections. This is what people voted for.
