Redistricting -- About the IRC (presentation)

Arizona Independent Redistricting Commission executive director Ray Bladine, along with legal counsel Joe Kanefield and Mary O'Grady made a presentation to the Arizona League of Cities and Towns a couple of days ago, with an overview of the Commission, legal issues involving redistricting and the 2011 map drawing process.

Because the AIRC actually IS interested in an open process and having people in our great state understand what is going on, they recorded the 90-minute presentation and posted it to Commission's website on the About IRC page.

I was trying to come up with a witty (sarcastic) note suggesting that Tea Party people would not be rushing the AIRC website to watch the video, but it just wouldn't come out right. After all, people being distracted and deceived is rather tragic, and it might be inappropriate to make fun of them.  And fear really is something that shouldn't be funny.

Wouldn't it be fun, however, if everyone NOT bringing Tea Party yellow shirts and flags and scarves to the Public Outreach Hearing at South Mountain Community College tomorrow (Thursday) had BLUE shirts, flags and scarves?

Mischievous is not the same as sinister, is it?
