Monkey See, Monkey Do

Looks like the good folks in Georgia have decided to take a page out of Tom DeLay's book (hattip: ACS Blog).

To be fair, the Georgia Republicans say they are trying to make the districts more compact and representative of community guidelines. Whether or not this is true (I don't know), it still seems abundantly clear that there were partisan motivations behind the move. If Georgia legislators (on both sides of the aisle) are serious about crafting fair, competitive, and equitable congressional districts, then they should follow Iowa and Arizona in making the process non-partisan and outside the realm of political disputes.
