In a move that shows how irrelevant the Democratic Party has become, 51 House Democrats in the state of Texas have walked out and put themselves in "self-exile" in the state of Oklahoma. Why, you ask? Because they are so upset over the vote to redistrict. Leftist extremists hail the move as sticking it to the junta/fascist/hard-line/illegitimate administration. Give me a break. Firstly, these Texan Democrats violated the law in doing what they're doing; it is illegal to willfully prevent a legislative quorum, which is what they are doing. Secondly, as much as I feel for these poor souls, Democrats are not the only ones to suffer from gerrymandering; it is a bipartisan practice. I may not agree with it, but for now, it is here to stay, and if Dems were in control of the Texas legislature, they'd do the same thing. Cry me a river, guys.
