"You don't think it [redistricting] needs reforming?," whines Jessica Yellin, desperate for Kucinich to join her in bashing the Ohio redistricting process now that it's controlled by Republicans. "Are districts drawn fairly, or based on politics." Of course they're based on politics, and that's as fair as it can be. No matter what, each side is going to try to get the best deal for their team. When Democrats control the process, they frequently draw as many Republican incumbents as possible into a single district, thus assuring their continuing dominance in the state. Republicans aren't even going that far. They lost two districts in the census. They have to eliminate two districts. They're not going to eliminate their own party's districts and leave the state's Democrats unscathed. They shouldn't be expected to.
