Allen West's Redistricted District About To Get 4% More Democratic

Read the whole thing.

The House Chairman of Redistricting says the map can only be drawn in certain ways, due to new legal restrictions on district line-drawing:

The newly approved constitutional amendments, passed by more than 60% of Florida voters, require the legislature to follow a set of standards. This is the first time the legislature has been required to follow these legal standards

These new standards have resulted in disrupting the current districts for incumbents. The Tampa Bay Times stated that the House, Senate, and Congressional maps represent a record-breaking shakeup in incumbency. It has been reported that at least 38 members of the Florida legislature do not currently live in their district.

I don't know if I believe that, or believe it partly, or disbelieve it, or what. I just saw this story from a commenter 90 minutes ago.

Depending on the hour, I despair about a base which is so paranoid that they're eager to believe an Establishment is so stupid and suicidal as to boot out a rock star just because he's a threat to them...

...or I despair that they are, in fact, exactly that stupid and suicidal.
