??? Republicans do not have a "Congressional Majority." Republicans have a majority in the Senate, which is state based and cannot be gerrymandered. Dems have a majority in the House of Representatives, which is district based and can be gerrymandered.

It disproves your point when the Republicans lead in the part of Congress that cannot be gerrymandered, while the Dems lead in the part of Congress that can be gerrymandered.

...not to mention further promotes the reputation of Libtards being uneducated fools who shouldn't be allowed near a blog, let alone a column of a major newspaper.

I think it is more like that the folks who print this shit already consider liberal voters dumb as shit or otherwise useful idiots. Remember how the phrase 'taco voters' leaked out of Hillary's/DNC emails?

The average lefty doesn't THINK critically in most cases and ESPECIALLY when it comes to the bullshit news being fed them. So, these NY Times scumbags publish this crap with the DELIBERATE intention of just throwing anti-GOP propaganda meat at their readers that they know is fake but will be believed anyway.

This isn't the first time I've seen this. Ever since the 2016 election they have been recycling this crap. Earlier this year, I was at someone's house (oh boy...bad news right there) where my friend's sister who was also present started blabbing about how "Republican gerrymandeering cost us the White House and Congress!"

So, I mentioned what HeadSet already did while also adding, "Only two states in the Union assign electoral votes based on House districting, Maine & Nebraska. And they weren't swing states and they basically cancelled each other out. So what does this have to with the presidential election? And how can redistricting be involved if the Russians were the ones who hacked our election?"

Everyone else got quiet in the room but she went on a TDS tear that was so whacked and incoherent I bet if I had thrown in the words 'cognitive dissonance' she would have blamed Shrillary's loss on that, too.

How the Democratic Pennsylvania Supreme Court gerrymandered the State:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Redistricting_in_Pennsylvania

The State Court, dominated by old Liberals, actually tossed out the State Legislature's map and made their own the map. That's how Republicans lost at least one seat in Western PA. And those districts were fair: To compensate that most of the population loss was Dem Gov Employees and Dark Blue Union Members retiring out of state

Two cases went to the Supreme Court, with the Dems arguing in Pennsylvania the Court Ordered changes were Democratic, while in the Maryland Case arguing their Gerrymandering, which took the state from 6-2 to 7-1 Dem vs. Rep seats and shouldn't be subject to Court Review.

Update: The Decision was in. While the Court says overtly racial maps can be negated in extreme circumstances, otherwise it's up to the Legislature. SCOTUS recognized that not only is political gerrymandering a political issue (and therefore not a legal issue and therefore not under Court Control), but the Framers were familiar with it themselves and did not regulate the practice.

And if anybody doesn't understand that SCOTUS nominees are absolutely vital:
ROBERTS, C. J., delivered the opinion of the Court, in which THOMAS, ALITO, GORSUCH, and KAVANAUGH, JJ., joined. KAGAN, J., filed a dis-senting opinion, in which GINSBURG, BREYER, and SOTOMAYOR, JJ., joined.

If Liberals Lose then Republicans cheated them out of their Entitled win. Then they play word salad with Conservatives and say shit like...
"Gawd! I fucking hate'chall, yaw so damn entitled!" "Fuck Donald Trump... reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!"
