    It appears they didn't and now they're ***.

    Individually GOP lawmakers are smart. However, when they get together in a closed room they get a terminal case of the stupids.

    When Dems get in a closed room they get a terminal case of the arrogance.
    Every time I am forced to interact with a legislator, former legislator, lobbyist, or wannabe legislator, I lose faith in the system. With very rare exceptions, they're all idiots that are the equivalent of used car salesmen with connections.

    There are bad judges out there, but not nearly as many as there are legislators.

    I know. It appears to be a map any citizen should be proud of. I'm upset it took the courts to do it rather than the legislature.
