Fight Club Politics; surprise surprise!

Juliet Eilperin discusses the high incumbency factor (she claims 98% tonight on the Daily Show) and the redistricting in the U.S. which both the Democrats and the Republicans are guilty off. Redistricting allows an encumbent who was voted in by a highly Republican or Democrat voter's base, to be voted back in. It's one of the big issues here in Texas as well. Hence, Austin is kind of like a little Democrat/Independent haven in the midst of the great Republican sea. However, like I said, both parties have been guilty of doing so even though it's worse now than it was in the '90s, according Juliet during her interview with Jon Stewart.

Listen for an interview with Juliet Eilperin on NPR

Well said. I saw that interview on the Daily Show as well and referenced it in one of my blogs.
Good job. I'll be back to read more.

Hi Zeb,
when I did a background research on Juliet I found she was quite the smart cookie. It's always good to find another woman representing 'us' intelligently for the sake of issues and their passion for things that are not right, as opposed to an Ann Coulter who just serves to do the virtual mudbath fights in order to get the ratings up whilst not even having something compassionate or intelligent to say..
thx for stopping by, pls keep the comments/feedback coming, positive or critical..!
