Recovery.gov has provided plenty of enjoyment for our Virginia bloggers. The state has 11 congressional districts and yet stimulus money has been spent in 23.
Give them the benefit of the doubt. Maybe people thought they meant state House districts. Or the computer default was 00 and the data-entry person forgot to change it.
Troglopundit found a friend with a good idea. The extra districts need representation too, so run for the seat in Congress. I could announce my candidacy for Virginia 00, and my neighbor Phil could run in Virginia 12. In imaginary districts, regular redistricting rules probably wouldn't apply.
Maybe at this weekend's Blogs United meeting, the first 12 Republicans and 12 Democrats who arrive could become congressional candidates. Kind of like a door prize.
