But does anybody care? Gerrymandering is as old as representative democracy. The point of elections is to convince people to support the government, not to discover something about "what the electorate wants" whatever the hell that may actually mean. To quote the words of the song...

"What you see is what you get
You've made your bed, you better lie in it
You choose your leaders and place your trust
As their lies wash you down and their promises rust
You'll see kidney machines replaced by rockets and guns
And the public wants what the public gets"
