What sort of process could be employed to rule out that claim? Perhaps some limits on geometry that would rule out those amoeba shaped districts. Require all districts to be rectangular with the long side no greater than 2x the short side, or something like that. Even if something could work at the state level, there are still issues with city council districts and country government districts.

Entrenched politicians would probably still figure out ways to exploit anyway.

The cries about Gerrymandering are hollow coming from the left. Why? Because if the districts are drawn by geography - as they should be - then you'd see a lot of the Congressional Black Caucus vaporized.

Can't have the most partisan group in all of Congress be replaced by Republicans, can we?

When democrats do this sort of thing it's always due to the 'will of the people'. When Republicans do it it's for naked partisan reasons.
