Bachmann not pleased with redistricting

    Michelle Bachmann accused a judicial panel in charge of Minnesota redistricting of liberal bias. She was moved out of the 6th District, into the 4th, which has a Democrat as an incumbent.

    Bachmann will run for the 6th District, hoping to join Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz as the lone House members who live outside their districts. The 4th district is also closer to Minneapolis, which of course Bachmann doesn't have much of a chance.

    Someone convinced she was going to be president now is afraid of going up against local yokel?

    Only a totally gerrymandered district got this clown into national office to begin with. She'd get drilled if she tried to run statewide in Minnesota.

    Maybe she can pray away the unfairness.

    BTW, am I the only one who didn't know you don't have to live in the congressional district you represent? That seems odd to me, unless it's because the district lines are redrawn so often, that it isn't feasible to have that kind of requirement.

    In Canada, you don't even have to live in the same province.
