Let me just say in ADVANCE this time that this is a spoof: Tom Burka at the american street: GOP To Reshuffle Swing States; Plan To Redistrict America:
“The boundaries of New York State now include only the relatively conservative upstate area and Staten Island, which is solidly Republican. Democratic New York City is now part of Rhode Island, which will have four electoral votes in November.
[. . .] Republicans were aghast at charges by Democrats that redistricting American states in this way was unconstitutional. “It is amazing to me,” said Republican Senator Zell Miller (D – Ga.). “These Democrats whine at the drop of a hat whenever they don’t get their way.”
