Shrug. They are following the rules so that's the way it is.

A fairly bold step given every political polling\strategy organization is estimating that the Democrats are going to lose somewhere between 3-7 Senate seats in 2014 and could potentially lose control of the Senate if results end up at the further end of the spectrum.

It's pathetic watching all the partisan crying from both sides over this....it's almost as bad as all the boo-hooing about gerrymandering.
