Would You Like Cheese With That Whine?

The Democrats are already whining about redistricting:

This new district map essentially does the reverse, and insures that cities, which are losing population, are not overrepresented in the next General Assembly, hence the real source of the Democrats' concern. There was very little in the way of complaint from Democrats about under-representation of rural Tennessee and East Tennessee back when they drew the districts and drew them to manufacture Democratic majorities that were padded at best and an outright fabrication of reality at worst. Now that it is time to administer the medication to the patient-Tennessee's electoral system-that Democrats made sick with years of neglect and taking their majorities for granted, Tennessee Democrats do not want to take their medicine. As they know very well from experience, the party that runs the General Assembly calls the tune in Tennessee-see how we felt all those years?

I should say it's in fairly poor taste to reference your own "article" for background in an opinion piece. Journalistic integrity?
