maps from 2008? Here are the equivalents for the election just past, confirmation that we're still red and blue all over. Sprinkled all across this great land of ours (as a politician might say) are 61,675,412 Obama votes and 58,479,114 for the other guy. Not pretty, exactly, but an improvement over foolishness from the left (likening the results to the Civil War) and the right (claiming Obama was reelected by non-whites). And an ongoing challenge. Can we do purple?
