"excessive partisanship?'

Specifically what distinguishes 'excessive partisanship' from 'appropriate partisainship,' or 'acceptable partisainship?'

Is it if a Republican or a Democrat does it? This stuff just is laughable!

I can't believe the Supreme Court would reverse the federal court approval of congressional redistricting in Texas...it was legal (although somewhat unorthodox). However, given the squirrelly way the Supreme Court has been going lately...

I don't think they'll take the case.

I raised the specter of Sandra Day O'Connor singlehandedly striking down the TX redistricting last week, and several posters virtually called me a traitor for raising the possibility. I was called "ignorant" and reminded that O'Connor sided with Bush in Bush v. Gore and that she will side with the TX GOP in this matter. After all she was once high in the AZ GOP. Still, I am like you: I distrust many people, and at the top of that list is one Sandra Day O'Connor.

I don't think we have anything to worry about with regards to Sandra Day O'Conner. While she has become quite liberal on the church and family issues, she remains conservative on other issues. The only precedent I can recall for this case is Bush vs. Gore in 2000, and she sided with Bush. Siding against the 'Rats on redistricting would be fully consistant with that ruling.

Sandra Day O'Connor is a disgrace. Her judicial 'philosophy' if you can call it that, is to figure out what the majority of Americans think, vote that way, and come up with a bunch of gobbledy gook to support it.

She said that SCOTUS should take into account other countries' jurisprudence when deciding cases, which is outrageous.

She said that affirmative action is Constitutional for another 25 years. Another outrage, something is either always Constitutional or always not, unless the Constitution is amended.

She is pathetic, pathetic, pathetic.

I wouldn't be surprised if the SCOTUS bans partisan gerrymandering. I oppose it on principle. The good news is the Rats in California will lose much of their safe seats too. In a democracy, no district should be drawn to give ANY politician, regardless of party, a home run advantage and lifetime tenure.
