Bob Gibson’s column a couple of days ago was about how ridiculously uncompetitive Virginia races are after Republicans’ 2001 redistricting.

Democrats in the General Assembly have got to pledge that they’ll put nonpartisan redistricting into place when they regain the majority, and the rest of us have to hold their feet to the fire come 2011.
