    You know this is only a talking point because it currently would benefit the GOP, since they control more state legislatures since the 2010 reapportionment, right?

    If the Dems pick up states in 2020, or SCOTUS rules political gerrymandering unconstitutional, the GOP will stop arguing this.

    People on here were a big no because she's a celebrity but if you want a real progressive Cynthia Nixon is the ticket.

    I'd vote for her in heartbeat.

    Can we stop pandering to the Reverend Al already? Geesh (and same goes for Cuomo if he has as well).

    My friend's sister went to Mount Ida to be a vet tech. She's a very nice girl and she's as dumb as a bedpost. That school is going to fit in perfectly with the rest of the UMass system.

    Yeah, but don't worry. It's not on principle or anything. It's because he's f-cked them into trouble passing their agenda.
