    The post election maps showing which states went "blue" and which states went "red" are somewhat misleading. The county by county map below gives a more complete overall picture of what actually happened on election day. It must be a very sobering map for Democrats to look at! Not too much blue, is there?

    No wonder they side with the insurgents in Iraq. Pockets of resistance against the freedom of people to run their own lives.

    If you look at a weighted map you'll see that the geographic United States map sorted red and blue by county is misleading to many who'd like to see what they want to see. By the looks of this map, a whopping 80%, at the very least, voted Republican. Actually, it was more like 51%. With 48% voting Democratic. The blue counties tend to be urban counties, with many, many, many more people in them than your average red county. If you look at a weighted map, John Kerry, for winning Massachusets (which, by your map, even though its entirely blue, makes up about 1/30th of the square milage of the red counties in Wyoming, Montana, North Dakota and South Dakota) got as many electoral votes as Bush did for winning all four of those MASSIVE states.

    Again, its not about geography, its about population.

    We know that.

    Conservatives have been quietly herding you libs into tight groups so that we can better keep an eye on you.

    Next step is to construct a fence around those blue areas.

    It occurs to me that Jesusland football is going to be one slow-ass game!

    That is a drawback. But we still have NASCAR.
