The Iowa Republican: Gerrymandering!

Excerpted from this post at The Iowa Republican

My liberal friends over at Bleeding Heartland are trying to predict
what Iowa's congressional map is going to look like for the 2012
campaigns. Before I totally destroy their proposal, I would like to
point out that this usually takes a lot of time and effort to do.
Krusty Kudos to them. Now let's compare their map, to the one I
created back on January 6th. Just more proof that I'm always setting
the agenda in the Iowa blogosphere... The rules of the game: The Iowa
Code requires that districts have a population as nearly equal as
practicable to the ideal population for a congressional district in
the plan. Specifically, the Code provides that the deviation
percentage variance for any congressional district in a redistricting
plan shall not exceed 1 percent.
