Obama moves Census

Obama has quietly moved control of the US Census from the Commerce Department to Rahm Emanuel in the White House. Nobody's really talking about this, but this is a Very Big Deal.

The Census determines not only representation based on congressional districts, but also the make up of the Electoral College! This effectively gives control over the Electoral College to the Democrats. And, because Democrats push "sampling" as opposed to hard counting, they can easily artificially inflate numbers in liberal areas, while decreasing numbers in conservative areas.

Not trying to be alarmist here, but doesn't this seem like the first real step to a one-party state?
