Gerrymandering in Texas

David Frum comments today on the New Republic’s insistence that it was scandalous of Texas Republicans to try to redraw the congressional district lines in their state (it’s his fourth item). What I especially love about TNR’s line is its pretense that the Republicans have trampled on some great, hallowed tradition of letting the courts draw the lines. You’d think this was something handed down from the Magna Carta.
