You never forget your first negotiation

From the Denver Post:
A GOP state senator admitted Wednesday that the redistricting maps Republicans drew were deliberately tweaked to give their side an advantage.
Sen. Greg Brophy, R-Wray, said Republicans started out drawing a fair map but then got wind that Democrats were "up to something."
"We're thinking, OK, they're trying to screw us, so we better come back with a new offer that is skewed to the right so that when we start negotiating and we come back to the middle it's a little closer to something that would be even," he said.
Um, yeah. Negotiations work like that sometimes. In other news, political candidates sometimes insult each other during campaigns even though they bear no personal animus towards each other.
